If you’re a shy person and don’t have a job, you don’t have a job because you have limited communication skills.
You have limited communication skills because you don’t practice.
You don’t practice because you are afraid of making a mistake or looking foolish.
You don’t ask for help because you believe you are shy.
For some reason you may or may not be aware but you just don’t want to give others the impression that you are disrespectful or pushy.
To a certain extent you actually are disrespectful and pushy to the wrong people.
Such bold accusations, Mr Kevin Olega! “I am not!” you tell yourself.
To which I say, consider this scenario as another way of looking at things: Tell me in the comments or send me an email if you agree or disagree:
You have the guts and/or balls to be jobless and depend on others for your needs and survival. You are dense enough to ask your spouse, your parents, friends or other family money.
You take stuff without returning value.
What value are you delivering?
What value would you like to provide others?
If you’re not aware, value is what you provide in exchange for money.
People who have money deserve it because had generated value for others.
Would you like to know how to create value for others?
Write down a list of your strengths. If you identify your strengths, you will know what you are good at. Strengths may include your skills and/or attitudes and/or habits that you benefit from. You can use those gifts to serve others.
Write down a list of your weaknesses. Your weaknesses are challenges that can be overcome and will give you a glimpse of what you can do for others in the future. I had bad communication skills, when I got good at speaking and sharing my message, I started teaching others to do the same in person and through my writing. Sharing about a weakness you overcome inspires other people to take action and improve their situation.
Write down a list of accomplishments and things you are proud of. Accomplishments tell us what we can do. Sometimes it mirrors personal achievement and sometimes it is a reflection of how blessed we are with skills and situations. Having a list reminds us that we can get things done. It enables us to believe that we can. When we believe our best performance is unleashed.
Work on making your list include at least ten items each. Having the list improves your confidence and gives you a physical document of what you can do and what you can work on.
Write down the possibilities you see after completing the list. Do you see a better future? After doing the exercise please share your experience in the comments bellow.
Thank you for reading this far and thank you for your attention.
We may never meet but I'm happy I am able to contribute to your life through my writing.
Always remember that if I can do it, you can do it too.
Successful people are willing to experience temporary discomfort and do difficult activities that unsuccessful people are NOT willing to do so that they are able to build the life and enjoy benefits that unsuccessfull people will never have.
