When I was a kid, I was often told to get inside the house by 6 pm to avoid a litany session with a family elder. Some of the things they said were there vampires and ghosts that could be out there to get me.
I don’t like watching horror or suspense movies at night.
Recently, I thought something bit me in the dark. Just like what happened to me last year, I didn’t see what it was (or did it really bit me?). Nevertheless, I brought myself to a hospital for an anti-tetanus vaccine in the middle of the night.
But then I saw myself in Project Persuasion 3.0 GOES DARK held in Phuket, Thailand.
After three days of listening to Father Freedom Mitch Miller, Internet Marketing Godfather Mark Joyner, Cassingena Copy Chief Brian Cassingena, and The Day Job Destroyer Rob Wiser, I discovered that I shouldn’t be afraid of the dark.
I should uncover it.
It is in going through the dark where I learned that:
❗️First thing first, I need to take care of myself.
✋My truth should always be clear to me. On the other hand, there are other truths in my life that I should re-create or throw away, especially if it’s hasn’t helped me.
🦸♀️ Persuasion is a superpower that anyone has – even I. It’s Kryptonite: me not being aware that I have it.
💣⚔️Creating, managing, and scaling a business is a daily art of war.
🤩I am not just promoting a product, a service or even myself. I am selling a CHANGE.
😎😎😎 Other people also treaded the Dark with me, yet they were the most generous people I met – from sharing ideas to saving me from the dogs on the street.
I should embrace the absence of light so I would know how to continue creating even if I seem to see nothing.
Going Dark isn’t hiding from the monsters. It’s preparing myself to murder mediocrity as if there is light. 💡💡
