So fresh, so clean

Do you think you are special?

Before you answer that question…eh… think about this. There is a thing called self-fulling prophecy.

I read somewhere that if you believe you are special and you want to be important, and if you really work hard to prove it, there’s a good chance you will succeed. I had to think about that when I was listening to Outkast’s So Fresh, So Clean song the other day.

“Ain’t nobody dope as me I’m dressed so fresh so clean (So fresh and so clean clean)
Don’t you think I’m so sexy I’m dressed so fresh so clean (So fresh and so clean clean)”

You know how rappers always rap about the lifestyle they want to have? How they make others see them  in a certain way. A lot of them actually achieve that lifestyle. They become what they think they are or want to be. But it is more than just that. I mean you need talent, dedication and hard work of course.

To me being special is all about adding value. My friend and colleague Buffi Duberman always says: “If you believe you have no value, others will think the same”.

 

So many people think personal branding is about self promotion, but in fact it is about showing who you are and where you add value. Because if you can get notice and yes if you can add value, people will think you are important…. and special.

Do you think you are special?
