Everyone has at least one. A memory of a time when you were new to something. Maybe a time when you had just met a group of people, perhaps a new job or maybe way back when you were in college and you pledged to be in that fraternity or sorority. You remember, a time when you were unsure of yourself and your new surroundings. Maybe a time when you were given a new responsibility or you didn’t yet understand your actual job. Do you remember how you felt inside? Do you remember how you thought everyone was staring at you, or how uncomfortable you were? Well, what’s this got to do with your Online business strategies and your role as a leader?
It’s really quite simple. When you’re new to something and not yet sure of yourself or your responsibilities, it’s only natural to feel uneasy and have apprehensions. When you start anything new, there is going to be some feelings of uneasiness, or even fear. When branding yourself and implementing your new Online business strategies it’s only natural to experience uneasiness before you begin growing into your new role as a leader.
Yet, now looking back on some of those times when you were so unsure of yourself, doesn’t it seem like it was nothing. Don’t you almost feel silly for ever feeling the way you did when you were faced with that new or uncomfortable situation. How is it that what seemed like such a big thing at the time, is now nothing at all. What is it that happens to us, as human beings, that allows us to adjust into new roles and take on new situations with relative ease?
Perhaps it comes with time or just age. Maybe it’s simply a matter of practice or just learning the ropes and gaining the experience needed to stand out as a leader. What ever the case, when it comes down to it, we are all wired to learn new things, grow as individuals and lead or teach others what we’ve learned.
Whether it’s starting a new Online business or something as simple as deciding to attend a new church, by stepping out of your comfort zone to try something new it is only a matter of time before you will begin to feel comfortable enough to lead others. Just think about it. How much have you change since that first day on your job or the first time you met you spouse?
No matter what it is, remember, you are in a constant state of change and hopefully growth. Just like your Online marketing strategies, things are in constant motion and always evolving. Never let your apprehensions and fear of the unknown slow you down, or hold you back. With time and practice you too will soon emerge as a leader and become comfortable with your new role.
