Friday Failure Club: FACE YOUR FEAR
The very best way to open up an audience and deliver your message to a prospective talent scout or other is to get them to laugh. Make fun of the process or tell a relateable story. Laughter breaks down almost every barrier that you can have. As you can tell from Meg’s story, doing that is not always easy, but it is something to strive for. Especially when you know that to make it as a NARRATIVE ART COMIC BOOK MARKETER, you have to connect with people and fans. Laughter is going to the best medicine for putting your foot in the door.
“I think that by putting it off I’ve made it worse. I feel like I have to rip the damn band-aid off.”
Fast action is everything to facing your fear of attacking your narrative art comic book marketing career with laughter. You want JOY. You want PEACE. You want LAUGHTER. You better start taking action TODAY to make it happen. Enjoy what you do. Be content. Laugh at your mistakes. Keep going. Keep going. Keep going. Sitting on the couch isn’t getting you anywhere. You have to feel alive and it’s going to take everything you know to do it. ATTACK. Take that action.
“I care what they think about. If nobody laughs, it means I’m not funny. And that means I’m not me.”
Delivery is everything. You want to delivery quick and you want to deliver often. The more powerful your Narrative Art Comic Book Creations are, the more valuable you will be to your customers and your environment. If nobody likes your script, it doesn’t mean they don’t like you. It means you are not connecting with them.
If nobody likes your drawings, it doesn’t mean they don’t like you. It means you haven’t connected with them through your drawings. When you learn to connect and engage your audience, they will see you as much more valuable as you see yourself right now.
“I’m going to review the footage of my first stand-up.”
Reviewing your content. Reviewing you ideas. Putting your portfolio together and thinking analytically about what you want to be and where you are at realistically will be cause you to set up an enourmous amount of self-doubt and feelings that you may not be ready for. You have to get through that. Review your content for the positives. Say everything that you are liking about what you have learned so far, and then take an honest look at what you need to improve on. If you can’t find anything seek help–for example through my indidual creative services where I can critique you and put you on a course to follow to improve your creative skills.
“Who knows if the material is bad or if it is just the person saying it. Which also is a strike for me.”
You are who you are. But you are not who you will be in the future. The you of the future begins today. Who do you want to be? What do you want to be? Start acting today to make that happen.
