Some years are hard. Not because you work so much but because you don't see the results and that's what is making life heavy.
This year was different. For years I was rejected on international conferences because my brand Was "too" local and without international support". I have a lot of trust in what I do and what I know Thanks to @asiastopyra , my PR agent, I was persistent. This year I gave Keynote Speeches on all of the 3 main stages at the World's biggest communication festivals - @spikes_asia In Singapure, @cannes_lions France and @eurobest_festival in Rome and Marketing Festival In London.
At Cannes - 15 min before I started my speech, the doors were closed as it was already at full capacity. The day of the Spikes I got an invitation to speak at 3 other events in Asia. At Eurobest they offered me double speaking time because so mamy people showed interest. In London, I was given the biggest stage they had to talk about my concept of work - #travelingCeo
I am sharing this with you because maybe some of you also hear that something is wrong with you. Just fuck it. Keep going. It is not for OTHERS to decide.
This year I feel a success, not because I talked at over 20 conferences, but because I refused to talk to at half this number. This year I refused to talk on conferences organized by Kotler in Hong Kong( year ago it was my dream to talk there). Because I realized that rather than be everywhere, it was important to be at some places - but on MY conditions.
Even so @izmalkowa had a very slow start this year -, we still achieved all our business goals, gained the largest amount of new clients in our history.
So please, if you still think that how you spend your New Year will determine your year - put this concept into the trash. It's all about your ATTITUDE AND HUSTLING.
it was my first year, apart from interviews, that i received 90% of my salary for writing. Not bad for dyslexic!
Everything that you water with work, passion and persistence will grow.
I wish you all to have trust in your good karma
