In January 2021, I decided to get serious about my personal brand.
I was so serious that I started planning posts to release 3x a day on my Instagram profile.
I did this for about a month and a half and decided I wanted to pace myself for the long haul. So, I reduced my posts to once a day.
It is now April 13th and I have successfully posted positive content to my IG for 103 consecutive days.
I am so proud of myself!
And today I want to share one very important tip... it’s something I think we all can internalize over time... and it answers the following question...
How did I stay committed?
I celebrated my small wins.
The small wins matter more than you think they do... more than I even thought they did.
When I first began my personal brand journey, I would plan a few days worth of posts at a time...
Then I would plan a week at a time...
Then I would create content whenever I felt the inspiration to do so and schedule it to release days into the future.
One time, I remember having 3 weeks' worth of posts scheduled and ready for release.. yes over 20 days ready to go.. and yes, it was such a satisfying sight to see...
And in that moment, I also remember feeling accomplished..
And feeling that I am in fact crushing my goal of staying consistent with posting and showing up in the world of social media to start creating my personal brand.
I am not saying I wasn't nervous, scared, or worried I was doing it wrong. I'm saying I committed to making a little progress every day.
And I am here to tell you it feels good to know that I stuck to it.
I had a vision for something and I went after it...
In fact, I'm just getting started...
but I will continue to show myself some love and care along the way by celebrating the small wins of the goals I have set before myself.
