Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.
In a recent Self Improvement Daily episode, Brian Ford talked with Jim Fortinabout the power of identity. (A powerful podcast episode. Link in the comments)
A non smoker isn’t even tempted if someone asks them to smoke. Why? Because it’s part of their identity.
How many times have you heard “I don’t smoke.”
They don’t even have to decide because they identify as a non smoker.
🤔 What behaviors do you want to get rid of or create?
⭐️ Now decide what identity you need to adopt to become who you want to be.
An identity that has meant a lot to me is my identity as a child of God.
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” - Romans 8:16-17
Think about it. You are a literal son or daughter of the most powerful being. You are his heir. You are important. You have an infinite potential.
Don’t ever forget it.
Here’s a link to a music video that my little brother did. It has a powerful message. And my little family is in it.

🚫 I need fancy equipment to start producing content 🚫
No. You don't.
📹 You don't need a fancy camera or lights to start a youtube channel.
🎙 You don't need an amazing microphone or studio to start a podcast.
💻 You don't need the best computer to build something amazing.
In fact, I would argue it's the exact opposite.
⬇️ Start small.
📱 Record your video or podcast on your phone.
✏️ Practice making content.
💥 Learn what you're passionate about.
🙌 Provide value.
You can always upgrade the equipment or quality later.
Waiting for the best equipment is really just an excuse. It's a way to procrastinate the creative process.
Don't do it.

🥅 I've made it a goal to be more engaged and active on LinkedIn.
❺ This is my fifth post this week.
⭐️ TLDR: It works.
I know that it's not about the numbers, but since I'm in the marketing space, I'm fascinated by the numbers :). In one week, the results have been incredible.
My profile views are up 180%
This is a pretty easy platform to get noticed on. It just takes a little bit of effort.
👍🏻 Try it for a week. Write a post every day.
Does building a brand take too much work?
If I'm honest, I think about this almost every day. It takes a lot of energy to consistently show up. It takes a lot of effort and time... Is it even worth it?
I'd argue that it is (that's probably not a surprise though).
You see, it's precisely BECAUSE it is so hard that it is worth it.
Let me explain - If building a powerful brand was easy, everyone would have one... and then no one would. Marketing is about STANDING OUT from the competition. In order to stand out, you have to be doing something they aren't.
Put in the work. It'll be worth it! :)
