Trying to make it can be difficult about 80% of the time. It can be stressful as at first, you will be putting a lot of work in without seeing results. It doesn’t help when you see others who are doing well, as people are of course sharing their achievements with the world and even though we are happy for them, it is hard not to feel a little jealous as a result of comparing yourself to others.
One thing to keep in mind is that everyone you look at is in a different place in their journey. This includes you. Don’t compare the beginning of your journey to someone who may have reached their peak.
Another thing you NEED to remember is that it’s okay to look at other people’s content and take inspiration from it, but copying people will get you no where. The most important part of building a brand or making a name for yourself is finding YOUR niche. In a world where everyone is using social media, it is so hard to be noticed. The only way to be noticed is to stand out from the crowd and to create content that represents who YOU are, not who you think you should be.
Following trends can be used to gain attention and there is nothing wrong with this as long as you are only following the trends that you genuinely like. This is because it is important to not only be authentic when building a brand as people will probably see straight through it, but authenticity is important in everyday life. If you are following trends, promote this in a different way to how everyone else is in order to still stand out meanwhile posting similar content to others.
This advice can apply to people looking to make a name for themselves via social media, or for people who are looking to build a business for themselves. If you are researching online about how to excel, being yourself is a top tip that many people give. Following the advice however, is more difficult. You will always have bad days and you will always have times where your self esteem is low in terms of who you are and even what you do. Just remember to keep pushing as your time will come and the quicker you learn to be yourself and love yourself, the quicker you will get there.
