The way we advertise and market ourselves is really an extension of the way we see ourselves. But the way we see ourselves doesn’t always match how we are seen by others.
The way you view yourself and the way you view others is a result of all sorts of things. We can be the most self-conscious, self-involved, self-absorbed, and self-important person in the world. Or we can be the most self-aware, self-involved, self-absorbed, and self-important person in the world. Or we can be both.
When we’re in the middle of a project, its easy to feel like we’re not doing a good job at it. We’re not always the best at marketing ourselves as we’ve always wanted to, so we can feel we’re not doing our best. But in reality its the best we can do, and if we’re not doing our best, we’re not doing our job.
Self-aware, self-absorbed, self-important person. It really isn’t that hard to know if you’re doing your best. Sure, it could take a little bit of work and practice, but its really not that hard. And being able to recognize the difference between your own best and your real best is a skill that takes practice.
You need to really have an idea of how you want to measure your own success. A true self-aware person knows whether or not they are doing what they should be doing. They know that they are not putting in the effort they should be putting in, and they know that they are not giving their full attention to what they should be doing. A true self-aware person is able to take the time to measure their own efforts and do whatever they should be doing.
If you are self-aware it is because you know what you want to accomplish. If you are not self-aware it is because you have no idea.
The fact is, your actions are not your own. If you’re self-aware, you’re not doing what you should have been doing. So when you’re at your most self-aware, you don’t just stand there and hold your hand, but you do the same. If you’re not self-aware, you’re not doing what you should have been doing. And that’s not entirely true.
We all have a lot to fix in our lives, but a lot of that work is often invisible and unrewarding. We all get caught up in some sort of marketing strategy. There’s a reason why some people get rich and others end up broke. Well, that’s what happens when you don’t do your own marketing. We’re social creatures, not businesspeople. If a person needs to get rich, they will have to hire a professional to do it themselves.
Most people don’t give a crap about their marketing strategy. They’re just not going to be able to help themselves. Unfortunately, this has a knock-on effect. It puts them in the position of needing to hire a professional to help them get rich. If you want to get rich, you need to hire a professional. If you give a shit about money, you will not be able to get rich.
It’s true. There are quite a few people for whom making money is secondary to being able to do whatever they want to do with their life. The sad truth is that there are a lot more people who are just not going to make it as wealthy as those who have the power to do so.
