You have to rock what you got. Focus on your strengths and don’t try and overcompensate.
People have this misconception that becoming a rockstar means being somebody they are not, or pretending to have skills they don’t have. They think it’s all smoke and mirrors to try and impress everyone around them.
On the contrary, being a rockstar is not just about the adulation or what other people say about you, nor does it have to do with faking it till you make it. Rather, a rockstar is someone who makes their own rules and tries to be extraordinary. Therefore, unleashing your inner rockstar is simply focusing on your strengths, downplaying your weaknesses, and not overcompensating.
YOU are a rockstar
And being a rockstar means rocking what you’ve got. You can’t focus on your shortcomings all the time. Instead, you can go the positive route and focus on your strengths instead. For example, if you are not very good at words but are a good painter, you can express yourself through art. If you can’t sing but are a good dancer, then dance like nobody’s watching. If you are a good public speaker, then look beyond your perceived physical shortcomings because you can use your words to entice people to listen to you.
Of course, as a rockstar, self-improvement is always a good thing. In my case, I have a lot of ideas that I know can help business owners make more money, and I am aware that in order to help more people I have to step out of my comfort zone and do presentations and podcast guestings and accept speaking engagements at conferences and events. I know that my public speaking skills still need improvement, but with constant practice, I think I am getting the hang of it. I rock what I have and it is worth it.
Life keeps giving us lessons. Being visible is important to share your story.
On a business perspective, the conference also discussed how to show up on camera and engage. The speakers shared a simple roadmap method for information videos. Keep in mind that the audience cares about your message. This ties back to your power of word. Frame words in a way so they start thinking about themselves, where people tie back to your message emotionally.
All in all, I had a great experience at the Lifestyle Design Summit.
