This topic may not sit well with some of you reading this or it may strike a cord that will make you look deep inside and say Holy Cow I am doing the same thing in my business!
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
― Oscar Wilde
I shot a video the other day and shared my story in how I did not stay true to myself in business. I was too busy trying to be like my mentors and how they did things that I was loosing who I really was as a person. There were times that I would feel bad for not being “professional” enough or if I did things differently than my mentors, that I was not going to be successful in business.
The video below explains just one of my stories on this topic and how I was not being true to myself in my business.
Being yourself in business is truly the BEST business to be in. It was not until recently that I decided to own who I was as a person and not feel bad for being ME that I started to have so much more fun and more success in my business.
In network marketing it is good to have an upline support team. In fact, its a must. At the same time just because you may do things a little differently doesn’t mean it is a bad thing. We all have different personalities, goals and dreams, work habits, beliefs and morals.
The best business you can ever be in is being in the business of staying true to who you are
Now i am not saying do not ever listen to your upline, but when you start feeling bad for who you are as a person that is when it becomes dangerous. I know because I have been there. I would feel that my happy go lucky personality was a bad thing. I started to feel that no one would take me seriously and that I couldn’t build a business on my own. I started to lean on my mentor and cared only what they thought. I would second guess everything I would do because I had to have their approval.
This is SO dangerous!
I know there are so many of you out there who are going through this same thing right now! I want to tell you that I know how you feel. I want to tell you that its ok to be yourself. You will start to have more fun, attract a lot more people and start making an income with your business.
Just remember the best business to be in.. is being YOURSELF!
If this blessed you leave me a comment! I would love to hear your thoughts on this topic!
