“Power is gain by SHARING knowledge, not hoarding it”
STOP here if you don’t agree with this statement.
When I achieved some things or a goal, I will start looking for “WHAT’s NEXT?” and “HOW CAN I IMPROVE MYSELF BETTER?” This two question sometimes drive me crazy.
So, 2016 I put myself on a mission, I want to be a speaker or trainer to share my knowledge in portrait photography as well experience in building up my career in the creative industry.
Can you imagine a person with stage fright like me, how am I gonna share in front of others. But I knew that definitely need to overcome this fear if I want to achieve this mission.
Before telling you how I overcome, let’s talk about WHY:
1. To guide and help others who struggle to kick-start their creative career
I have been a struggling stage for two years of should I quit the 9 to 5 job and be a full-time professional photographer. It takes me TWO YEARS to made ONE decision and even worst without any experience of running a business.
I can’t say I’m the greatest but those falls and raise I went through definitely able to be a reference for them to get ready and avoid it if possible.
2. Discover the upcoming talent whose potentially work together as a team
“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” This statement explain everything, I prefer to go FAR.
3. GIVERS GAIN
Give is not necessary just bad because I GAIN too. Just being honest, increased my visibility and exposure, opportunity to promote my services and skill AND I received more ideas & knowledge from the participant sharing session.
Back to the topic HOW DO I OVERCOME THE FEAR: There’s a friend of mine Kevin Khoo A public speaking trainer, I go to him and be his private student on how to conduct a public speaking and overcome my fear of stage fright. HE DID IT and I MADE IT, I might not be his best student, but I’m getting better now.
