You do something entirely different from what your PALS are doing and you feel no one is supporting you?
How do you block out the noise and connect with like-minded people like you? Read!
The truth is no matter who you are, as you grow and find your voice, you'll fall into the trap of discouragement and fear.
Why? Because you tend to notice that most people in your circle of influence are on a different path entirely. And you, who is not aware of this would expect your friends who has their own priorities to support you. Wrong!
They may pretend or even try hard to support or encourage you but the truth still stands that they have their priorities and paths to bid. What then do you do?
One of the best gifts God has given to we humans is the Internet. The Internet is super powerful. It's so powerful that if you know your way around it, you'll never have to worry about growth anymore.
Whatever field you find yourself, there are a million other like-minded people like you scattered all over the world, looking to connect with people like you.
The only reason you haven't connected with such people is that you are here busy waiting on your paddy paddy and your real geez to promote what you do. Wrong!
Here's a new way you should view the world from.
I can connect with people who need what I do. Not because they don't have priorities but because they NEED ME.
How do you connect to people like you and stop wasting your God-given talents and gifts? I'll give you just three steps. You can model the rest.
First, know who you are.
Second, ask yourself, who need me.
Lastly, connect with them and give them value.
I'll only explain the last point.
How do I connect and give them value?
I'll use a farmer as the example.
If I'm a farmer looking to connect with farmers like myself, I have no business on a doctors platform. Because doctors have a different view of the world entirely.
Never be a doctor giving tips on how to cure aids on famers platform. It would bore the HELL out of them.
What then do i do?
I would go on google and search using a simple keyword related to my niche.
"Local farmers community". Once I click on the search, different forms of platforms and forums on different places I never thought about would pop up. What would I then do with them?
I'll simply check them all out and join them.
Once i join them, i would not go there to just take from the groups or forums.
I would go there to bring value to the community and also connect with my fellow farmers.
Whatever information i can help them with to better their crops, birds, or livestock, i won't hesitate to share it with them.
Look here, once you're on the right platform with like-minded people, share any old post you've posted on your wall that didn't get any engagement. I'm waiting for your thanks after sharing it. 😇
I am Bernard Okoye.
A human like you.
So you don't have to believe a word I say. Simply give it a try! That's all.
