You don’t need to scream to get attention. You don’t even need to show off your award section to increase credibility.
All you need to do is to be quiet and create something that people can’t rub off from their heart.
It’s less shouting and more impacting. Shouting doesn’t work. The more you try to get attention of the crowd, lesser your chances of making a difference.
Strip away the crowd and create for that one percent who genuinely pay attention to what you have to say without your effort to convince them.
The reason I don’t accept awards is I don’t want to focus on something that takes me away from what I am here to do – create value.
By doing this I may upset 99% of my readers but I am more concerned about that one percent who will pay attention without I being the center of attraction.
Accolades and applauds are good but if they prevent you from what truly matters, it’s better to give them up.
Quieten your approval seeking mechanism and create instead.
Your creations can make a dent in this world without you being the center of it.
