And Happy Victoria Day to my Canadian friends!
It’s a gorgeous day here in Central Ontario, made even better because the Petes won the OHL championship last night, and are going to the Memorial Cup! I’m kind of hoping that they do the watch party thing in the park for those games too, because that was kind of fun on Friday night.
As for me, it’s shaping up to be a pretty quiet day I think. I have a few things I’d really like to get done today so I’ll probably end up just working away and taking a little time out to go for a walk. I was thinking about going to the beach, but it’s hard to justify driving 45 minutes each way for a 20 minute walk and not even be able to swim.
That’s one of the reasons I’m so adamant about getting a beach house. I want to be able to walk out my front door and be on the beach without worrying about the logistics of things like changing, where to put my phone and stuff when I’m swimming, etc. I grew up spending summers on Lake Erie, and so the only way I know how to be at a beach really is to be able to just walk outside and be there.
And since that’s my long term goal, I thought this quote that showed up on my Momentum dashboard this morning was especially appropriate:
“Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.” ~unknown
So, for today’s read I’m pulling from the archives and talking about the fear of self-promotion. Because the bottom line of it is, if you’re afraid to promote yourself, then it’s going to be harder achieve the goals that are going to get you to where you want to be.
But before we get to today’s post, I have a little self-promotion of my own for you. In yesterday’s Sunday Roundup, I posted a 1-question survey asking whether you would be interested in having Master PLR rights (so you can sell the products as PLR or use them in your own PLR) to the products in the Ritchie Media Closing Sale. If you haven’t already answered the question for me, could you please take a moment to do that here… I’ll only set them up if there’s enough people interested, so I want to give you every chance to share your opinion before I decide. I’ll close the survey and announce my decision in Wednesday’s newsletter.
And now, here’s today’s read…
Today’s Read: 4 Ways to Overcome Fear of Self-Promotion
I don’t know about you, but self-promotion does not come easy for me. And I think it’s the same for a lot of people.
Many people worry that self-promotion is the same as bragging just to get an ego boost. But the truth is, self-promotion isn’t about that at all; it’s about sharing what you can do for others and how it will help them.
The thing we all need to remember is that every single human being has worth in the world, including you. But, if you’re not going to talk about your own self-worth and what you’ve done to reach your goals and succeed, no one else will.
Sadly, in our culture, most people are very uncomfortable saying positive things about themselves at all, even if they’re true. Part of this is because there is a misunderstanding of definitions of words. Self-promotion is simply advocating for yourself when you’ve done something well to let others know that you can do the same for them. You can still be humble and very honestly state that right now, you’re the best at whatever it is that you’re best at.
