The Personality, I have while blogging is different from the personality I have when I’m not. To a great extent, after I started blogging, my personality has changed a lot.
I started to use words to express myself. Those words, helped me to transform my personality. I was on a consulting Skype call with a prospective student.
He told me the following at end of the call
I feel more comfortable after talking to you about my future.
Even though, I can read so many articles in your blog, but I feel more secure and have a clarity about my future career plans.
Which, I believe is true.
Then I realized, the impact I have on my blog reader’s life.
When you make your career, future, life decision based on my words, it’s HUGE. EPIC.
I would have never thought, I would have an impact on people’s life few years back. But, today it’s happening.
I feel satisfied when I’m making a difference in my readers lives.
But, I don’t think, it would have been possible to make same 5 years back.
So, what’s changed in 5 years?
A lot of things.
Back in October, I spoke about Higher Education to a Final year students in an Engineering College in Tamil Nadu, India.
College Principal asked if can talk to students. Next day when I walked into the auditorium, there were over 400 students.
Yes, over 400 students waiting for me.
I didn’t feel a thing about shyness, stage fear or large audience.
That was a huge change for me.
My uncle asked me after the speech “Did you have stage fear?”
I said “Nope, not for a second”.
I spoke to students for 45 minutes and followed by 10 minutes Q&A.
I transformed myself by expressing myself via blogging.
Now, do you want to know how can you transform yourself?
Following lines exactly reflect that experience, transformation I had to go through in this past 5 years
…. when you look into your heart, you’ll see that everyone’s afraid of something… But the corresponding truth is that we all have the capacity to overcome our fears, to make the changes that enable us to meet our goals. And your goal shouldn’t be perfection (which is unattainable, mostly because it doesn’t exist) — instead, your goal should be to constantly evolve your skills and strengths so that you, as an introvert, can survive in this extroverted world.
So if you’re shy or introverted and you think that there’s something wrong with you — something broken that you just can’t seem to fix — you’re wrong. There’s nothing wrong with you at all. You are perfect, just as you are, and you’re ready to work your way up to the stage.
While reading, I realized that I was able to transform myself by doing several things listed by Jonathon Colman.
Some are born great, but some have to work to build greatness and a better you.
I hope, I was able to kick-start your transformation process from this article.
