This past year I’ve learned a really big lesson when it comes to getting people to notice me.
For about 9 years I became quite quiet and really comfortable doing the same thing day after day. At the same time I also felt frustrated because nothing was changing in my life. Now I realize how small I was keeping myself. I was afraid to take more initiative or risks because I was afraid I would fail. I just assumed people knew what I was good at and when the time was right opportunities would just come my way.
Let me tell you – that kind of thinking rarely gets you anywhere! If you want more out of life and people to notice you, you have to find ways to create opportunities for yourself.
It’s important to realize Prince Charming isn’t just going to fall from the sky, or that job isn’t just going to magically appear in front of you. You need to take action and put yourself out there!
How to Get People to Notice You
I wanted to be able to create videos where I could share my ideas, stories and feelings with people. If I just sat here waiting for someone to offer me a space to do that, it’s likely that would never happen.
So I took action and found a way to make it happen on my own. I went out and bought a camera, learned how to use it, and how to put my videos on YouTube. From taking action and creating that opportunity for myself I’ve opened the door for other potential opportunities to come my way.
When you start creating those opportunities you’ll start to find there’s a ripple effect. A lot of the time you just need to make the first move. Most of the time people just need to see who you are and what you’re doing. Just make sure when you’re creating those opportunities for yourself you’re not setting an expectation around it. The key is to enjoy the process, be in the moment and pay attention to what you’re learning as you continue to grow.
