I MOSTLY TELL our little ones, and sometimes my friends: Be Yourself, celebrate Who You Are daily, moles and all! 🙂
I know it’s easier said than done, yet, did you know that being the authentic you, will actually attract the kind of people who feel your energy and relate to your story, offers and business?
Well, now you do!
I first published this article on 23 July 2014. Yes, we have been that long on the Blogosphere…And today I just couldn’t resist re-sharing this lesson. Because I can!
And because we live in a Digital world esp. on Facebook. You can now talk to a robot and create a whole communication sequence to your audience using a bot…More on this later!
You can check out the original article and our very first blog posts Here!
Be Yourself, be true to your inner being and see Success in your Business and Life!
So why am I bringing to life a 4-year-old article? Because I want you to understand that until you accept YOU and Be Yourself, you cannot attract what you want.
You need to be your authentic self because everyone else is taken. When you project someone else, you are confusing your vibrations and thus diverting your blessings. (Unless you are an actor/actress by profession.)You need to be your authentic self because everyone else is taken…Click To Tweet
Otherwise, you keep asking yourself: Why am I not getting the results I desire? Here is what I mean…
You are doing everything your coach is telling you, you are doing the mindset work, you read daily. Heck you are doing a Facebook live video daily and you literally live on social media…And still…Crickets!
First let’s get this out the way
Grow Your Business Faster
If you are a Blogger, a Coach, in direct sales, an Online entrepreneur; you may be missing out on one resource that could increase and accelerate your business growth and life for good.
We didn’t know this resource until 2015, even though it has been around since 2008. When we finally took it up a year later, we still did not get its power until 6 months later. When we finally did understand just how effective this tool is in generating leads and sales for our business, and applied the lessons, we have seen some great results! And checks 🙂
So, if you’re struggling, or simply new and looking to generate more leads and sales. Being part of an amazing community in the online industry being a bonus! We cannot recommend this platform, highly enough, you will thank yourself later! You deserve MORE Success THIS YEAR!
Now, let me ask you a question….
Do your children always tell you who or what they want to be like when they grow up???
Mine kept changing the “WHO” a whole of a lot, sometimes Mum, or Dad, but mostly strangers, to me anyway. Like Miley Cyrus (God forbid), Beyoncé, Michelle Obama…nice one; their teacher, iwo…!
My son literally wanted to be a builder at one time, then Jay-Z, more recently Pavarotti, Maserati…Oh is this supposed to be a classical musician? Lol and the list goes on…!
But one thing I always tell them is
“YOU ARE UNIQUE, BEAUTIFULLY CREATED FOR SOMETHING UNIQUELY YOURS. So be yourself and you will succeed at whatever you set your mind on!”
I also assure them that
“You have unique abilities and talents that could and should out shine any prior generation…! Your Success is waiting for you to Rise up to your destiny.”
My son looks at me with old wise eyes beyond his years and says…
“Hmm mum you just like to make us feel good!”
But I truly believe what I tell them, bless!
Now let’s look at adults, we on the other hand like to be lead. We believe that if we hang around some one successful, we too shall be successful. Most people hide their vulnerabilities to maintain a social facade of a confident and happy person.

They think this is what will attract for them that cool guy, great job or even more business.
I have come to learn that the Most Successful people are not afraid to show their vulnerabilities. In fact, they use them as a propellant to the next big win. Some in fact take it to the next level, they take every opportunity to learn from them and duplicate…
Yet, I don’t know what it is, but LOTS OF US hide behind our computers trying to be something we are not to others. Seriously, take this example: Some people online splash and claim earnings they can only dream about as real-time earnings….!
They think “”If they Fake it or act like they are perfect“” it could translate into sales and profits. It is a result of the “Microwave wealth mindset” and impatience to achieve greatness. Which takes time…
People today, think that showing one’s emotions is a waste of time.
Yet alas that is so misleading, far from reality and it’s not what your audience want to see!!! In fact, they can see through that energy and lose interest fast! Gosh I used to lay it on thick, In fact, my first upline told me it was “okay-ish” to share his income screenshots like they were mine and I am sad to say I did… It felt downright wrong! And guess what, my audience saw thru me, our business stalled for all of 18 months…I am a recovered spammer!
I since learnt that it’s MY Story that impacts others, that creates relatability and builds my authority. People know I have been there and know the way out.
So, what changed?
My friend, understand that its absolutely okay and in fact essential in most cases to “Re-Invent Yourself” In order to get different results from what you have now. Or maybe its simply retracing your steps and aligning with your Inner being that delivers the results you wish. I believe I started this journey 5 years ago and …
Its why I wrote the book: “Afro-Brit Travelpreneur Confessions.” To share my story and inspire someone to step out and build a life of your dreams.
People relate to people, they like to know what YOU are about. Not the persona you create behind that screen of yours.
Here is the deal, even if you use Bots like Manychat to communicate with your audience, keep it real. Make your messages as personable as possible so people don’t feel like they are talking to a robot.
I too used to be skeptical about talking to bots. I still get leery about talking to AI online or whatever persona a person has created to make me feel comfy and happy to work with them. Yet we cannot avoid technology or social media. It has changed my life! I still want to know YOU!!! So be yourself
Show the person you are, imperfections, mistakes, warts, failures and all…no farts thank you. 😊
Let’s learn from your past and experiences. Because we like to learn from Our & other people’s mistakes and successes. Perfection is usually annoying. ☹ So, who wants to receive information form a non-human, an entity, a bot.
I used to hate it when I start a conversation and end up chatting to a bot…Mostly because they are unnatural, cannot relate to a lot of life’s experiences and you can spot their emails and messages a mile away.
Don’t you just get a cob on when you call a company and talk to a machine telling you: hit 1 if you want CS, hit 2 if you want x etc etc?
Well, I grew up fast last year and realised the value of automation using bots and projecting my authentic self via the messages I send…I am still learning and I know some people are where I was before, but hey…I embrace change and grow!
Bots are human creations, projecting Artificial Intelligence (AI). So, they are not quite human and can’t relate to human experiences! Yet you can make your messages as human as possible via bots like Manychat!
And if you too wish to increase your email open rates to almost 100%. Get a ton of new and interested prospects and you don’t have to send them daily messages. Because you automatically do so via your Facebook Page updates. You are in luck.
Here is the Integral way to set up your Very own Facebook Virtual Assistant and Grow your list exponentially!
So, what has changed?
Technology has evolved, we live in different times. I am a digital entrepreneur, and the changes are so fast its best to keep up!
Yet I still say, be yourself if you want to win in the game of life. This means being authentic, be as natural as you can, share life experiences. Stop trying to become something you feel truly off about. Often times its the wrong path to take!
The more you put the real YOU out there, the more successful you will get. More so if you’re just starting out in the coaching, online or home business space! Don’t try to do it all. Why? Because the quality of your work lowers, and the stress shows sooner or later and gets you down!
Instead start to share the best of you, share your skills, talents, knowledge, products, opportunities and CHARGE THE RIGHT FEE!
Sharing is caring, it doesn’t mean you get poor while enriching other’s lives.
I love to share so, let me share this wonderful E-book FREE just take it, coz I love to share and it sure changed my life. Starting today accept FREE gifts, don’t question nature, A Gift is a gift! 😊
And while we are talking about gifts, understand that this year is YOUR Year. You have gifts waiting to be shared. And if you are confused about how to put that package together and bless others as you too are blessed, you want to check out our JetSet Academy Coaching.
I love uplifting others and I am so excited for you to bring the change you desire this year! As much as I was when I first started my own Business!
So, to get back on tract, I like to connect with people who understand and acknowledge that others are where they were not so long ago.
I am not saying wear your heart on your sleeve, am saying be REAL, be YOU. Share the mistakes, setbacks, pitfalls and successes you went thru at the start. Others can learn from that and avoid or duplicate the process as the case may be!
Also share this post with someone who might benefit from it. Sharing powerful content is what is going to ATTRACT people to YOU and once that is done…They will follow you, that’s where the huge profits are made!
That’s why I say start sharing from where you’re at -right now. Maybe you tested a program and it let you down or you bombed badly, You bought some Ads and got zilch from them or just got 2 sales of course that sucks….Its Poop!
BUT guess what, many haven’t even taken the first step, and others are RIGHT behind YOU. So, when you share your experiences, they will look up to you as dare I say it, “their Mentor!” They learn to trust and follow you, buy from you, invest In you. They will invest with you, because they Relate to You and you are relevant to Them. It’s all about THEM get this!!! Even if you are now a Millionaire and have all kinds of gizmos, they will still relate to that person you were and have HOPE for tomorrow!
They learn to trust and follow you, buy from you, invest In you.Click To Tweet
They could be like YOU too if they follow what you do!
It makes all the difference in your life and Bank balance as well and it will be well with your soul, That’s important to Me anyway. That I have a good conscience and its well with My soul. So, I’d like to say be yourself, share your PIT, share your story, teach others.
I can tell you that I have had setbacks along the way, I have promoted programs that just didn’t fit well with my soul. I have tried to “Copy others” and it just felt fake! I have burned a few bridges along the way…Don’t do this unless its with Non-serving people, doubters, toxic people and fearmongers!
Let the right people come to you because You are putting yourself Out there.
