Why you owe it to the world to be your true awesome self

What is holding you back?

Are you afraid of what people will think of you?

I bet you have skills, knowledge, experience or time that you could share with others, that you could offer to people to help them, but something is holding you back.

For most people the first stumbling block is fear of putting yourself “out there”. Feeling exposed and vulnerable.

The fact is though that most people would LOVE for you to help them!

If you have a problem and you know someone has a solution, who would you like more – the person who offers their solution or the person who keeps it locked up and secret?

When you have a water leak or an electical problem do you condemn the plumber or electrician for having the audacity to charge for fixing it?

You should share yourself with the world. The nice people will appreciate it and we don’t care what the crazies and nasties think anyway!

  • Write blog posts that help other people fix their problems, achieve their goals, or just entertain them with your stories
  • Interact in social media and share good stuff
  • Answer questions and have good conversations in forums
  • Create your own products and sell them for a fair price
  • Offer services that solve real problems, things you do really well, or do stuff that other people can’t do or have not got time for

If all that is holding you back is just knowing how to go about it, well I can show you how to create and sell products and services that people will actually want to buy.

  1. Agree completely. I might go so far as to say that you cannot get inspired if there isn’t someone on the other end. We all feel a calling to do something, to share something and to help, listen to yourself and take action.

    I just started doing this myself and it’s one of the best things I’ve done. Sure, there will always be fear, but fear is nothing compared to the awesomeness you feel when you’re doing what you love to do.

  3. I agree. However, there seems to be a big difference between trying to help somebody with a physical crisis rather than a mental crisis.

    When your car breaks down and you need a lift, you call a friend immediately….

    It seems to be another story however when your Website is not working, or your business is down, or you’ve lost a job. Instead of asking for help or taking a friend’s offer to be of assistance, too many ignore the problem and hope it goes away. That is, until they are truly desperate.

  5. It is your quality that you put things in a way, it looks easy. In this article once again you are making things very easy. We are thankful to you.

  7. Very thought-provoking, Chris. It’s hard to face fear for what it really is and have the courage to conquer it. We often hide behind excuses for not doing this or that. This has got the wheels turning and I will definitely spend time thinking over whether I’m giving 101% of my awesomeness to my readers πŸ˜‰
    I also think the biggest fear holding us back is the belief that everyone else out there is an expert, and we can’t possibly know as much as them. Only when we start giving and helping and making other people’s day do we know our true value and that we do have something to offer after all; our true selves.

  9. Chris, you are usually right on but the fact is a lot of people do resent how much tradesmen like plumbers and electricians charge them for many things.

    Many of those tradesmen who have invested in a truck and thousands of dollars worth of tools also resent being being castigated for charging $150 for tightening a leaking supply line to a toilet.

    Your analogy further breaks down because people call a plumber or an electrician when they know they have a need even if they have no idea what the scope of it is.

    In many blogging situations we are trying to offer help to people who don’t know they need it. For example, my blog for real estate agents is geared to developing and sharing best practices for marketing homes. During the housing boom there wasn’t much marketing needed for homes and almost all marketing training and advice focused on generating leads and converting them into clients.

    Like the inept homeowner who couldn’t change a light switch if their life depended on it, many agents deny that the best option might be to acquire a few new skills and resent that the alternative is to pay somebody else for their services.

    Blogging to a group like this is a matter of nudging them along with good information presented in terms they can understand and finding a few who do “get it” and are willing to participate in the dialogue while grabbing a competitive advantage.

  11. @Henri – I agree Henri, it is much more inspiring when you are focusing on how what you do will positively impact a human being, rather than looking at a general “broadcast” πŸ™‚

    @MikeY – True, but it is not a reason to keep your solution to yourself, just a reason to communicate the need to resolve the issue before it festers – I think when people are in denial could be when they need your help even more! πŸ™‚

    @Yusuf – Thanks, I have a simple mind so that helps πŸ˜‰

    @David – Exactly. We have to ask “is this a reason or an excuse”. In most cases we cause our own roadblocks, and unnecessary ones at that. We are our secret sauce, and just because other folks are out there does not mean that people will not appreciate us and what we can do if we only give them the opportunity!

    @Jay – Ah but I asked do YOU, not do “other people” – big difference πŸ™‚ This is about your ideas and attitudes, and about focusing on the good, honest, fair people that you CAN help rather than the cheap, nasty and selfish people who will never be helped. You are spot on about nudging people in the right direction, very few people are going to take up your offer to help them right away, so you have to gently show them the wisdom of what you have in mind πŸ™‚

  13. Chris,

    I recently wrote a post about my career challenges and health issue that I was reluctant to write about. But one of my blogging friends encouraged me to just let it all out. I wrote about

    -getting fired
    -dealing with ADHD
    -ending up at a low point in my life

    I put all of this into one post. And what amazed me was how everybody responded to it. So, I think there’s plenty t be said for authenticity and sharing yourself.

  15. Chris,

    This is all very true. I felt this way for quite some time, but then decided, so what if some people don’t agree with me. They aren’t the “ideal” audience anyway.

    But for those who want the help and advise, the more the merrier and I’m more than happy to spill it.

    Cheers,
    Gabe

  17. @Gabe – Yup, you are not going to be able to connect with everyone, and to be honest, it will be a really diluted, generic offering that does πŸ™‚ Best to target the people you can really help and who are open to being helped – everyone will be much happier with that arrangement πŸ™‚

  19. Dear Chris:

    The more I live and the more I experience the more I realize how true that statement is. We truly owe to the world to be the best that we can be. If do not do that then we are hurting ourselves and we are hurting those others around us!

    I took me a while to find a reason to be awesome, because I was thinking to myself: it does not matter if I am awesome who cares; I don’t care if I am awesome. But then I realized that it is not about me! It is about others.

    You see our life without others is meaningless. Other people create context for us. That is why the best reason to be awesome is to help others!

    Best,
    Tomas

    P.S. As a step to bring the best out of me to help others, I just downloaded your free e-book about creating killer flagship content. I cannot wait to get started!

  21. Fear holds many of us back from doing things that could change our lives. I am stuck in the “comfort zone” with a regular salary, bills paid, nice holidays, home comforts and part of me wants to keep that lifestyle, part of me wants to be a success in business.

    Hopefully in 2010 I can find that true awesome self.

  23. Hi again Chris
    I like what Tomas Stonkus has written and can relate to that. As for that secret sauce, here’s something we’ve all heard before but reading it one more time won’t hurt:

    β€œOur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    From ” A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson.

    Reading this daily really gets me going because I feel like I can conquer the world that day.

  25. About 3 years ago I became disenchanted with the 8+ hr workdays and the 2+ hr commute I was doing 6 days a week. It all started when I was going off to work and my kids asked me “Daddy can you work from home?” I did a lot of soul-searching and realized my cushy salary and vacation time cannot compare to living ans raising my children. Mom stays home to school them (she’s a UC Grad in Education) and I am still looking for a way to work from home.

    Hence, my comment to you. I am planning on launching daddyworkfromhome January 1,2010. It will chronicle my quest and endeavor to bring work home and begin living again.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Chris.

  33. The curious thing is that we know so much, and don’t really know how much that is. I know I could help more people, but it’s hard to understand what they need.

    For example, it’s absolutely floored me that I’ve had to help 3 people figure out RSS and Google Reader over the last month. Stuff I can do in seconds… which other people can’t even conceive of.

  35. I have subscribed to your site for quiet some time (through a different email address), but this is one of the posts that resonates with me on many levels because I write and speak about establishing an identity for yourself and then sharing the “who you are,” with the world. Not only do you owe all of this GIVING to the world, but you OWE it to yourself. When you have the opportunity to provide value through a message, product, or simply your presence, this will bring incredible levels of joy to your life. I often find that people are always so focused on the WHATS IN IT FOR ME mentality and as a result they lose connection with giving for the sake of giving, which will always come full circle at some point in time. There is truly nothing as rewarding as seeing someone smile as a result of something that you provided to them. This does not need to be tangible and instead could be belief that they did not have in themselves. At all of my seminars, I always tell the audience that I see something in them that they do not see in themselves. This might sound quirky or cliche, but it is the truth. When you look someone in the eyes (whether it is one-on-one or groups of 1000+) you are able to see their true identity, which is often overlooked when they look in the mirror. Express your feelings to the people in your world and watch how rewarded you feel…

  37. i agree with the instructive words. we are always fear of putting ourselves β€œout there. it is indeed true. exposure needs our courage.
    sometimes the exposure is comfortable when we out porselved to sme trustful friends.,but the opportumuty is so few that we become skeptical.

  41. In agreement with your email linking to this post, and I would say that success is what it feels like when you know that you have helped someone else fix a problem, achieve a sale, complete a task or some other positive thing.
    By the way Chris, is that you being your true awesome self on Twitter with that slightly less than convincing Santa hat and beard?

  45. 2009 has certainly been my year to get outside of my comfort zone. I have started blogging in earnest, dived into social media and expanded my network of friends tremendously. The steps I have taken have not always been easy ones because I tend to be a very quiet person to the outside world. Becoming “authentic” with a public image has been frightening yet liberating.

    I love the interaction that social media has brought to my small world and I have found that I do have a voice. I tend to naturally be a giver to others but find it difficult to accept help from others. A dear friend once told me that when I didn’t accept her help I was robbing her of a blessing.

    Thanks for sharing this adventure with me (virtually of course and probably with no knowledge on your part that you had a hand in it) and encouraging me to get past the “first stumbling block is fear of putting yourself β€œout there”.

But I remind myself that any place worth going is worth waiting for and while I wait to get myself up to a level where people believe my words are actually worth listening to I guess I will just continue to write and share them because ultimately that’s why I do it all….

  49. Hey Chris,

    My biggest problem is the putting yourself β€œout there” part.

    I have just done only my second video for my blog being quite shy it was hard for me but you have to get over, it only took half an hour for a two and a half min video but I did it at least.

    Although my blog is still quite young one of my first posts was about opening links in new windows,this was done after I mentioned to someone that he should do this on his blog and he said “how do I do that”.

    As I said then,it’s amazing what you forget you didn’t know.

    You will always know more than someone and if you can help by giving them that information then you should.

    Thanks,

    James

    One of the reasons why I think people always tend to hold back is because a lot of us are scared of criticism, of failure, of taking risks and not knowing what’s going to happen after such bold move. But then again, the irrevocable truth remains; you can’t get a seal of approval from everyone all the time.

    Thank you for reminding me that there’s nothing to fret about. It’s a matter of knowing where to find the best opportunities. Take social media as an example, it offers various different platforms we can maximize to broaden our horizons. It allows us to freely exchange ideas as well receive and offer help at the same time. Who knows? One positive feedback might just send you flying to the moon.

    I know it might take a lot of courage for some, but would you rather settle for mediocrity and achieve nothing? Of course not. Let’s all crawl out from our shell, take a brave move forward and together we can conquer the world. It might not be an easy journey but it would definitely be more fulfilling. Thanks for the encouragement!
