If you think showing off is bad marketing, then you don’t understand marketing.
Without attention, you are invisible. Marketing yourself requires a certain amount of self aggrandizement. The more you do, the more attention you get.
The more attention you get, the more opportunity you have to help more people.
The limits of how far to take this are up to you.
There are many different ways to self aggrandize.
Some put cars and hot chicks in videos. When I see that, I smile because it means the person understands how to reach people.
From there, you just have to hope their intent is positive because with great power comes great responsibility. But the strategy of doing what works best to get attention is genius in it’s simplicity.
Most people don’t do all they could because they are held back by the opinions of other people who feel you shouldn’t mix business with entertainment.
But business IS entertainment.
If you want to help more people, then you gotta put yourself out there and get attention. You have to do something different than what you are doing now. You need to let go and fully be your best self.
I say be true to yourself or die. What’s the point living someone you are not?
The most destructive force in your entire life is paying attention to the opinions and gum flapping from other people who don’t know what the fuck the are talking about.
Here’s the cure:
Ruthlessly be on the hunt for truth and wisdom so you don’t have to be affected or swayed by all the idiots (sadly most people are idiots) and you can confidently do what you know to be right.
You need that foundation of wisdom first. It gives you roots. And trust me, people will try to push you over. The wind will try and knock you down. But if you are rooted in the truth because you chose to seek it – nobody can tear you down.
Aim to build your character and wisdom, instead of money.
