How to be heard

Jacqueline Jax july 16

If you weren’t early to the party on social media, then you’re probably having trouble getting heard in this really noisy social space.

But social clutter isn’t a reason to walk away.

I still see large cracks breaking open for people who are just getting started to fill those cavities with gold.

See I believe that…

You don’t thrive because there’s no one else around, you thrive because your passion for what you love shines so bright that no one else can bask in that same light anywhere else they go.

I’ve seen instagram accounts reaching their first 100,000 followers and continuing to gain traction. I see youtube vlogs and internet blogs rising up through the crevices, even twitter and facebook are showing huge new communities emerge with new influencers leading the way.

I just think the trouble with most people is they don’t understand how the platforms work and also seem to be missing a level of empathy in the way they speak to their audience.

People want to be inspired. People want a break from the lives that they have and we want hope for a life that’s better. We want to feel understood and less alone. But we especially want to trust and be able to count on those who inspire us.

So how do you inspire?

In order to cultivate a following you’ve got to be on a journey that only you can forge.

You’ve got to find interesting ways to express it while clearly defining what that journey is.

You’ve got to be consistent so people can trust and count on you.

Be yourself because an original is valued so much greater than any copy. An original is brave enough to stand alone and shine bright all on it’s own.

The struggles, the triumph and all the rocky roads in between would only ever be interesting when told by the wanderer.

It’s an authentic story… and

That story of your passage past crossed roads and uphill hikes is created by you and lived by no two people the same way.

That is what you possess that has the power to be heard.

  • lisamittsYes very true -there are always crowds in every industry- it’s those who shine bright and keep pressing forward to the high mark

  • caramel_dmvSocial clutter is a good way to put it! But at the end of the day….it is about having that drive & passion….it will determine your destiny…Basically create your own lane and drive in it. 🤗

  • thatchrisleeThe beauty is you can succeed and stand out by being you. Not by conforming to the trend like in the past.

  • thecocoscottI agree 🙂 I’ll check out the new story!

  • chwmaestroIt’s always about tools and connections to help get through the clutter. Nepotism is a neutral agent for good or bad. We must remember that we all work through interpersonal relationships!
