The Leader Within Is Your Brand
Stand Up to Be Counted
Many years ago, I took a leadership training class. I'll never forget the meaningless conversation that took place among very intelligent people. I was so disgusted, I walked out of the room. To my surprise, a number of people followed me out. When the exodus seemed to finish, I then opened up the door and sat back down.
The end result, again to my surprise, was hearing the instructor congratulate me on being brave enough to walk out. I learned you have a choice to simply fit in, follow the crowd, or step up to what you believe. This is true in your personal life as well as business and career life. You may experience conflict once in a while when you do speak up, but more importantly, you will qualify your better fit for being appreciated.
While some people insist on imposing their thoughts on you, when you hold true to what you believe is right, you remain true to yourself. This is the essence of your personal brand and marketing your business. Speaking up whether on the popular side of the discussion or not, brings out your leadership qualities. And when you are willing to take the risk to do so, you will attract the right job or clientele. Adding to the benefit, many more opportunities will come your way because others will recognize the leader within you.
Attracting the right fit puts you on the wave of the Smooth Sale!
