“Stop talking about yourself.”
“Don’t praise yourself.”
“Don’t blow your own trumpet.”
We have grown up listening to all this stuff, haven’t we? People have been keen on teaching us lessons on humility. Actions speak louder than words, true, but if we don’t tell people what we can do we might not get the chance to perform the action. You have to selflessly promote yourself to come to notice of people. In this crowd of millions you have to screech and tell why you are the best.
These days everybody is busy in shameless self promotion through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and what not. Everybody is busy whistling about the self everywhere. Everywhere you hear ‘I’, ‘I’, ‘I’ and ‘I’ or ‘my’, ‘mine’, ‘my new car’, ‘my new bride’, ‘my vacation’, ‘my new house’, ‘my new job’, ‘my new college’ and of course ‘my new pic’.
Everybody likes to have attention, which is why pictures are changed on Facebook several times just to seek attention and promote oneself. People yearn for more and more likes, shares and comments. These things are very flattering and boost ones ego.
Who doesn’t promote oneself?
Modiji does it so does Obama, Trump etc. These people use various media to promote themselves ranging from FM, video-conferencing, Social media, print media etc.
Irrespective of age, gender, nationality, race etc., people are promoting themselves.
If you want to be a leader of your field, if you want to be great then be a ‘shameless self promoter‘.
Never doubt yourself, rather promote yourself. Feel good about yourself and tell good about yourself. This would energize you. Shameless self promotion works everywhere, be it the promotion you want. Ask your boss to give you promotion by making him realize how important you are for the organization. Ask that pretty girl out with full confidence, be a self promoter. Want a job? Promote yourself in front of the interviewer. Focus on success rather than failure. No one would come to you to give you a job or raise you yourself have to go and ask for it.
I keep on doing shameless self promotion. People call it arrogance, but I don’t bother. I am running India’s oldest public speaking course with over 10 successfully running centers across Delhi NCR.
Wait I just shamelessly promoted myself. Is it difficult? No it is not. You have been doing it since infancy. As an infant you knew how to grab attention of your mother by starting to cry loudly. Life is short, don’t wait for things to come to you, go and ask for it. Tell why you deserve it. Choose the best place where you can shine.
To be a good self promoter you need to be a good communicator as well. A good communicator can sell oneself better. Communication is art of conveying your message in the most appropriate and effective form.
Thus, improving on your communication and speaking skills you can become a better and more confident ‘shameless self promoter ‘. You can always join my classes and get tutorship of the best in the business to improve your communication.
Oh!!I just shamelessly promoted myself again!!
See how easy it is!!
So pick up yourself and tell the world who you are.
