So you have a lot of followers, subscribers, or connections.
You attend every networking event. When you show up you receive a “Norm” like welcome as seen in the sitcom Cheers. Yet you think that success has eluded you.
It could be that your definition of success needs to be revised.
Are you selling a product or a service, or are you impacting lives? You can do both. You can promote, or sell your product and service as well as positively impact lives. If you are doing that, then isn’t that a good measure of success?
Some people may feel like they have not been able to increase their sales or interest in their product or service, but they have made some meaningful connections. If people smile when your name is mentioned in a group setting and it generates some positive feelings due to a past interaction with you, then that is impact. Can that be a measure of success?
For many in business, the bottom line is measured by how much money is generated. Looking at that alone leads to feelings of discouragement.
Today set your goal for impact, positive impact. How many lives can you pour into today? Your connections, followers, and subscribers are yours for a reason. Is it only because they are potential consumers of your product or service? Redefine success and you will feel successful.
Here is a radical idea, don’t try to get more. Try to give more, more to those who have already shown interest in your social media posts. Engage for impact.
