Whether you like to admit it or not, one of the biggest struggles every entrepreneur faces is worrying if your audience will like you or not.
You post something and immediately check how many likes you get… and if you don’t reach a certain amount in the first hour you consider deleting it. Or maybe you hesitate to send a DM to a stranger because you don’t know how it will come across so it just sits in your drafts waiting to be sent. *We’ve allllll been there, boo boo*
Want to hear something totally crazy?
>>It’s a-okay if people don’t like you.<<
Yeah, you heard me right and I’m going to say it a little louder for those in the back: IT’S OKAY IF PEOPLE DON’T LIKE YOU. We are always looking for outside validation to determine our self worth. But what if we simply stopped doing that?
In this episode, I interview gangster life coach and advice columnist Susie Moore about living a life where you don’t need other people’s approval.
Social media has blown up the comparison game we have always played in the back of our minds. Social media creates a much larger arena, with more “friends” than you’ve ever had, that you have access to 24/7. That has doom written all over it!
So let’s start capturing those lies that can come from it… that you are not good enough, that you are not good looking enough, that you are not talented enough, that you have nothing worth sharing, and a million other stories you’re telling yourself. Stop checking your likes and shake off the need for approval. It all starts by clicking play >>HERE!<<
