Do we fit into a category?
To Be All You Can Be….. or Not
I think we get hung up on titles. I am not a fan of putting people into categories. People are amazing. Everyone is an entrepreneur. If you have ever sold anything, talked a friend into doing something they did not want to do, or simply changed someone’s mind you are an entrepreneur.
Titles and categories are so limiting. We put ourselves into a category and before you know it, we have limited our abilities somehow. Now we are experts within our ‘category’. But that is not all we are.
An Entrepreneur Marketer, an entrepreneur, a marketer, and there is always the Internet Marketer and on-line Entrepreneur. These are all boundaries designed to limit our abilities into a box. A box I like to think of as the one I think outside of.
I am a Jennifer. That is my category. A Jennifer of all trades – master of none. I will gladly take that title as I believe perfection can never be reached because there is always an upgrade around the corner. The best we can be is ever learning and improving our position on this planet – you know – and staying ahead of the rat race.
I know, sounds a little like rambling. I guess I am a bit. I want to make a few points that back up what I have said in past posts. We limit ourselves. Without thinking- because it was instilled in us a long time ago to be a certain way… to think a certain way.
Breaking those boundaries we have created for ourselves takes dedicated attention to our habits. There I go again, talking about our habits. Categories, habits, training, brainwashing, teachings, lessons, and so many other terms for a simple focus on maintaining the status quo.
For me, the hardest habit for me to break was the way I thought about me. How I considered me to be just like everyone else. Normal, average, and not all-that-impressive. As I searched my life and tried to figure out how I came to look at myself this way, I figured out that we are trained from a baby to be just another person in the crowd. That makes us manageable and controllable.
All of a sudden I felt quite defiant. I am not just anyone. I can do whatever I put my mind to. I can be great. I am capable of learning. Honestly, with YouTube, there really isn’t much you can’t learn now. YouTube is my go to for pretty much anything I am trying to learn. There are some things that are better learned from the experts though.
So, I decided that I am going to be great! Want to be great with me? Lets shoot for the stars together in Wealthy Affiliate. The best place on the internet to become ALL you can be.
