Let Your Confidence Show
All successful brands have one thing in common: consistent fan base. A fan is someone who takes a vested interest in the success of a brand. They are devoted and show their support by making financial investments (purchasing tickets, CDs, merchandise), showing up for events, promoting by word of mouth, and they know the brand’s history of success inside and out. Fans are a critical asset to the success of any brand.You were created for success, and you are a brand in your own right; therefore, you need fans. You need a group of people to take vested interest in you. But, that group must begin with you. You have to have the biggest fascination with your success. You have to be your own number one fan.
Some people feel that being your own biggest fan is arrogant, conceited, vain or even proud. But, God has given you great gifts to share with the world. You have expertise and information that changes lives. There are people who are greatly improved by knowing you. So why not toot your own horn? Why not publically celebrate the contributions you make to the world around you. Aren’t you worth it? This last question of worth is the real struggle for most “I’m not a fan of myself” women. Therefore, if this is your issue, you must get over that misnomer if you want to make an impact that truly reflects your greatness. Until you become a fan of you, you will never be totally comfortable with others signing up for your fan club.
The best way to convince yourself that you are fan-worthy is to keep track of all your fabulous, outstanding, and amazing accomplishments in your very own success journal. When I say all, I mean all--from losing .5 pounds and winning a lucrative contract for your business, to mending a broken relationship and cleaning out that pesky closet. Seeing your success in black and white abolishes your ability to debate your effectiveness in the world. Your success journal becomes concrete proof that you do indeed have God-given gifts. You are an expert who changes lives, and people are better because of you. Journaling your success is a staple for every woman who is her own biggest fan.
Put your greatness on paper so you’ll always have a reference of the remarkable things you accomplish. In a very short time, you’ll develop a deeper appreciation for your success. You will build confidence while becoming increasingly comfortable with other people celebrating you. Treat yourself to a beautiful new journal and record your accomplishments today.
That’s what a fan would do!
