I'm Not Like You, I Can't...

Are Communication Skills Crucial in Networking and Sales Success?

"I'm not like you. 

I can't speak in front of people. 

I can't get on a stage."

This is something someone told me just yesterday.

Well, guess what? 

Me either.

Or at least, that's who I used to be. 

I have not always been who I am today. I am an introvert at heart. I was pegged as the quiet, shy kid who avoided eye contact to be called on in class even though I knew the answer. I didn't like the attention. I didn't like speaking up. 

I was the overachiever who didn't want the spotlight, the first-chair musician who always hoped there wasn't a solo. I was relieved when I wasn't valedictorian because that meant I didn't need to get up and speak. Despite wanting that and being so close, my fear overruled me. 

I am driven internally and wired differently than anyone I grew up with. I didn't like it. 

Now, I thrive on it.

I embraced who I am. The gifts God has given me. My strengths and challenges. I've taken it upon myself to become comfortable with being uncomfortable, and my life has been forever changed. 

So why am I telling you all of this? 

Well, because I invested in myself, overcame fears, and continue to do so, I have built an outward confidence. And I want to help you do the same. 

The sky is the limit for me now. I used to be my biggest obstacle, but I'm no longer holding myself back. I embrace growth, challenge, and change. Do you? 

Trust me, it's a game-changer.

You know how life is always throwing curveballs, right? Well, instead of dodging them, let's learn to swing and hit them out of the park. That's what investing in yourself is all about—being ready for whatever life throws your way.

Think about it this way: the world is like this giant rollercoaster, and change is the ride that never stops. Sometimes it's thrilling, and other times it's downright scary. But guess what? You have the power to handle every twist and turn like a boss.

So, why should you invest in yourself? For starters, because you're worth it! You deserve to be the best version of yourself. In doing so, you can use your gifts and talents to have a greater influence on others. Investing in yourself means saying yes to growth and learning. It's not about becoming the person you always wanted to be. It's crafting the person you are meant to be. 

It's time to dive deep. I'm talking about digging deep, getting to know yourself, and becoming the best you possible. It's about setting goals, pushing your limits, and celebrating every little win along the way. Trust me, the journey is just as important as the destination.

Now, here's the kicker: change isn't something to fear—it's something to embrace. Sure, it might be scary at times, but it's also the key to unlocking new opportunities and experiences. That's why I'm here. To guide and help you along that journey. When you embrace change, you open yourself up to endless possibilities. It's like stepping into a whole new world of excitement and adventure.

So, what's the bottom line? Investing in yourself and embracing change is the ultimate power move. It's about taking control of your life, chasing your dreams, and living your best life. So go ahead, my friend—embrace the journey, invest in yourself, and get ready for the ride of a lifetime. We've got this!
