You’ll get trolled.
Everyone else knows what they’re talking about.
Nobody will respond to your posts, anyway.
You’re not a natural influencer, you can’t build a following.
Other authors seem to be able to post that they burnt the toast and get thousands of likes.
You feel small and overwhelmed.
You don’t have enough fans or followers, nobody is going to listen to you anyway.
Sound familiar? None of it is true, by the way, but I don’t expect you to believe me yet.
There’s too much above to respond to in one post but know this: likes and comments aren’t the biggest gauge of success: people taking the action you want is.
Some of my biggest successes have come from people who have told me ‘oh, I saw your post on XYZ and bought your book’ or ‘I saw that post and signed up for your course.’
Did they like or comment on the post? Most often not.
We’re all chasing likes and comments, it’s the name of the game. But don’t get fooled into looking at other people’s likes and thinking that means they’re more successful that you – it’s not necessarily true.
