Never spend one second trying to convince people.
I listen, and then I talk.
Too many of you take your ear off the ground once you’ve “made it”. Huge mistake. One of the the keys to sustained success is to double down on what got you there. Keep listening–listening is how I make ALL of my predictions. I’m not Nostradamus, I pay attention. I speak about this more over on my Instagram page, check out this video if you want to learn about how I utilized this skill to grow my business.
Bonus tip, once you have that conviction, own it. So many get caught up with convincing people when in reality it’s about having conviction. Many of the things I’ve been passionate about have been “early” and most people don’t understand “it” or see “it”. And that’s ok.
I don’t have a big passion to convince them I’m right or it’s true. I have passion to communicate what I see but it’s not a need for me to have them agree…and this is where I see a lot of people waste energy. Use that energy to execute on what you “see” because at the end of the day, the truth will be the curry. Check out this video to hear me speak about this topic a little more–I hope it provides you with value.
