Writing from the Heart, Discovering Your Authentic Voice
It takes courage to be true to yourself and follow your heart. We can often get in caught up in what we think we should do or someone else’s magic formula for success and yet at the end of the day we must measure our success by our own values and the urgings of our heart. Social Media is the great equalizer however this does not mean making everyone the same. What makes life so interesting is that we are not all the same and we all have an unique piece of the puzzle to life. This is one of the driving forces that makes social media so dynamic and exciting. People are drawn to people who they feel they can have an authentic connection.
We are starving for real connections. At our essence we all want the same things, happiness, purpose, love and at our core essence we are the same and yet how we express ourselves in the world is as unique as every snowflake. This dynamic is what creates the magnetism of life which attracts us to each other.
As you journey through your internet marketing and forge relationships through social media you will be discovering your authentic voice. This can take time. We have so many voices in our heads. The voices of our family members, our friends, our community and the world at large. As I started seriously delving into internet marketing eight months ago, first I had my learning curve, then I found myself somewhat repeating what I learned from my mentors and trainers and only now am I bringing more of my own authentic voice and insights to the table.
I know this will be an ongoing process of discovery not unlike when we transverse life as children and grow into adulthood to discover our unique gifts, offerings and passions. We live in a world today that sometimes overly relies on systems and formula’s to create efficiency and leverage in our lives. Systems are important however a forced system that does not take into account your unique style will not serve you well or attract your desired audience on the web.
Have the courage to be yourself and have your blog, videos and other offerings on the web express your unique style, beliefs and creative genius. You will have more fun and the people who are looking for you and what you have to offer will be able to find you because you are writing from the heart.
