Yesterday I attended a webinar with Sandy Puc. It was on publicity and gaining market dominance.
Something like that.
And Sandy did not let us down. One thing I always loved about her is her value for the marketing game. She’s one of the few, and one of the only few in my oh so humble opinion that really gets it.
And she plays the game like a star. And shares so many valuable strategies.
If you’re not thinking and acting like the dominant star of your industry,
your performance will never rise to match that expectation.
If you do not have goals, a vision and the DESIRE to truly rise above and beyond the norm, there is a very high likely hood that you won’t.
Your photography skills, your success in your photography marketing and ultimately your overall financial and prosperity are, for the most part, dependent on your ability to THINK and on how you ACT.
This is NOT an ego trip. It’s much more. No matter what level you shoot at, high end, low volume…high volume, mass produced…or somewhere in between. It’s best to stand out and simply be the best in YOUR category. Or shoot for dominance.
Too many photographers get distracted do achieve success for the wrong reasons. And they stay stuck in those reasons. The key is to keep growing, keep thinking, keep expanding and challenging yourself.
NO matter your age or station in your photographic adventure.
History is littered with has-beens and almost made-its.
If you’re not convinced that you can achieve massive dreams, your behavior will never be sufficient to get giant goals done.
It’s that simple really. And it all starts with YOU.
I somehow always knew and understood this at some level. If even in a vague subconscious way.
(must have been all those self-help business books I read over the years…)
Yet, we have to dream the impossible. Or else the impossible will never, ever become possible.
If you’re not thinking like someone who’s the rockstar in his or her field, financially free, healthy as an athlete and happier than you could ever imagine, then there’s no way you’ll get there.
Why? Because your outcomes always reflect your self-identity.
It’s called: “the power of your self-fulfilling prophecy”.
Bottom line: your psychology and expectations for your performance determine your results.
You absolutely have to learn to think like the very best do to experience the rewards and lifestyle that the VERY best have.
Most photographers won’t do this. Most people in any business won’t do this.
We get trapped in whatever success we may already have.
(I call this the golden handcuffs syndrome)
Or we simply don’t feel we can do it. We stay Stuck.

Whatever the reasons are, it doesn’t MATTER.
The only thing that does matter are your thoughts and your actions
