Overcommitment can lead to the term no one wants to refer to themselves. A pushover.
If you’re someone who struggles to say no to people, chances are you may be guilty of becoming this.
In business, without a doubt, over-deliver wherever possible but manage this well, otherwise you’ll burn yourself with pressure.
Adding unnecessary strain will only eat you up and destroy where you’ve got to so far in your business.
Worst of all you run the risk of damaging your credibility by trying to cater to everyone.
People pleasing sabotages your authentic power, which I bet you are eager to pursue in your personal marketing.
The magic dust which ignites passion from your customers. The sole reason they connect with you.
Pursue relationships with an audience that connects to YOUR core self. Avoid being troubled by the opinion of other people who disagree with who you want to become.
Don’t alter yourself to attract mass markets. Rise above the temptation and value those who have already chosen to invest in who you are.
After all, nothing happens in the middle when you try and attract two opposing sides to generate more leads. You become bland and forgettable.
It takes time but gain the confidence to trust your own core message. If you try to model someone else’s too much, the risk here is coming off totally insincere and will disempower your business.
Seek criticism from people and stand by your goal as this will only benefit you by enhancing your authenticity. Sure some will disagree with you, but other’s will love you for it.
And those that love you for it are your audience. This is by far one of the best business qualities you can have.
Own your power of assertion and be practical with your message.
Assertion will always bring attention and respect.
That’s how you build your tribe. That’s how you know you are hustling.
