Where there is no black or white, there is gray. You’re right and I’m right. You’re not offended and I’m not offended. You’re happy and I’m happy. And we all go on our merry little ways.
Or do we?
Those who live in the gray are those little wall flowers that no one notices. They are screaming from the other side of their computer screens but barely register a blip on anyone's screen. They want so badly to be heard but the fear inside stifles their voices.
They say they want it all. They say they want to help tons of people. They say they want a business that makes lots of money. They say they know they were born for more. They say they aren’t going to live like this anymore.
So why aren't you showing up?
Is it because if people really knew the REAL you, they would:
A) Unfriend You
B) Never Hire You
C) Flame You, or
D) All Of The Above
Listen, they were never your friend if they didn’t respect your opinion. They were never gonna hire you, no matter what you said. They may flame you, but you have a delete button that will get you quickly pass their pussy online bullying ways.
So you stay safe in the gray and you let them have the power.
You won’t stand out online by trying to fit in. You won’t stand out online by trying to be like everyone else. You won’t stand out online until you take the time to figure out why you are different. You won’t stand out online until you stop being PC.
Stop being so damned PC and take back your power.
The real you isn’t some perfect little fucking ray of sunshine. The real you has an edge. The real you has opinions and we don’t know that about you because you’re feeling safe in the gray.
And that's where you and the big money makers differ. They aren't afraid to say what we really feel inside. Their message is bigger than any blowback they may get.
Most of those big money making, bigger than life personalities online don't have some fancy backend system. They don't know the latest Pinterest strategy. They don't follow some magic formula. They share their message and no matter how you are getting your message out online, if you're not getting the message out there you're wasting your energy on nothing.
This isn’t about not knowing what you’re supposed to do or how to do it. I can show you how to grow your business online. I need you to choose to finally go for it.
