Lessons from Fredrik Eklund – Steps for bursting out of your shell
Fredrik Eklund become my big inspiration since reading “The Sell”. Below I want to share with you a few lessons from the book – 7 steps on how to burst out of your shell. I found them really helpful for running infuture.fashion and my personal profiles across social media.
Look inside – how would you describe yourself? Do you have an interesting talent? Do you play any sport? Show it off. What makes you weird? What’s unique about you?
Find your trademark – Louboutin has his red sole what do you have? You need it. It will make you memorable. Don’t mind looking silly.
Get over what people think – you can fool everyone but never fool yourself. Be true to yourself. Those that matter don’t mind, and those that mind doesn’t matter. What I find out is that people don’t really have time to think about you, they are so into their own shit. People from nature are selfish.
Know what’s turn you on – what makes you smile? What do you dream of? If I wake you up in the middle of the night and shake you, I want you to scream out precisely what drives you. What are you working hard for?
Embrace failure – the more open you are about your failures and insecurities, the more love you get.
Be patient – things will not work perfectly from day one. Give yourself time.
Take chances – playing safe won’t get you anywhere. Your business expands in direct proportion to the fun you have and the adventures you take.
