There’s so much contradictory information out there about “what platform to be on to succeed”. And let me be the first to say: it’s all bullshit.
While, yes, there are certain places more people are, such as Instagram and Facebook, that doesn’t mean you HAVE to be there too.
ESPECIALLY if your energy just abhorrs those platforms.
Great news! You don’t HAVE to be on them if you don’t want to be.
So where should a Projector in business be online? Let’s dig into it.
First, step away from the business rules you’ve been taught.
Most likely, you’ve learned business strategy from Generators or Manifesting-Generators. I know I did!
I was SO upset with myself that none of the business strategies were working for me.
I thought there was something inherently wrong with me.
People didn’t like ME when I used those strateiges.
Because it didn’t FIT my energy.
It was like trying to fit myself in a box that was already full. I wasn’t even in the box at all. So I just metaphorically carried around the heavy box hoping one day I might be able to fit inside of it.
Narrator: that didn’t happen.
In fact, it only got worse because I got SO tired of carrying around the box.
It was draining, exhausting, and it really took the fun and enjoyment out of being in the business world.
I was so discouraged!
How did it change for me?
I started listening to my intuition, and you should too.
When I finally started just releasing what wasn’t for me, when I finally just set down the box and walked away from it, I started feeling lighter.
I started feeling like I could move freely again.
I felt like a breath of fresh air filled my lungs.
It did take me a while to recover, with the bitterness I felt and all, but once I did: I felt free from the heaviness that held me back.
I questioned “Okay, if all of that wasn’t working for me, what will?”
I started doing the exact opposite of what I was being told.
And, not everything needed to be the exact opposite, but the point is that I allowed myself to FIND what worked for ME.
And that’s where you may want to start as well.
So, where do you want to be?
Let’s say you scrapped everything you’ve been taught about how “business is supposed to look” right now.
And you were just leading with your energy and where you DESIRE to be.
What platform would you choose to be on?
Do you prefer short quips and dropping words of wisdom quickly? Twitter or platforms similar to Twitter may be for you!
Do you like community and being able to chat with other people, be in the support groups, and just give advice (with detachment of course!)? You may enjoy platforms like Facebook groups, Reddit, or other places you can gather virtually.
Do you like writing longer posts and really getting crafty with your words? Blog sites like WordPress, Medium, and similar sites would be great.
There’s a whole long list of other choices too, but you get the point.
And while we’re on the topic…
When you start scraping everything you’ve learned, you may notice that the niche you chose in the first place just isn’t what you want to do.
Some more great news: You can pivot and change it.
Most people don’t allow themselves the freedom to change their minds.
But why would you rather be stuck in something that you hate JUST to say you “haven’t changed your mind”?
What’s wrong with changing your mind?
Absolutely NOTHING is wrong with changing.
In fact, people who haven’t changed in months (or even years, yikes!), are the exact people who are stuck and stagnant.
Now, I’m not saying that you have to change your niche every few months or years, I’m saying that change bring evolution. No matter what area of life it is in. And you have the 100% choice to change whatever you want, whenever you want.
And ANYONE who tells you differently is just upset because they want to change too, but they don’t have the courage to do so yet. So they’d rather shame you than make the change themselves.
The Bottom Line
YOU decide where to be in life. YOU have the power to change your situation. And only YOU can figure out what’s in alignment with your energy.
Starting with your business platform if you want. But you could start anywhere else in your life if that feels right.
So, where do YOU want to be? And what do you feel YOU need to change to live a better, more aligned, life for yourself?
