The people who get noticed the most are the leaders. The leaders get the most attention and praise. However, the road to becoming a leader is not the easiest of roads to take. In order to become a leader, you need to take the challenging road.
None of the leaders start out as leaders. The first thing you need to do is decide what you want to lead. Do you want to be the leading mechanic, the leading speaker, or lead something else? All leaders start out with a course of direction, and in order to become a leader, you need to give yourself a course of direction too.
People who want to become leaders need to do a lot of listening before they become leaders. The business owner who lead their respective niches listened to the problems in their niche and found solutions for those problems. You don’t get to hear the problems without listening, and by listening to the problem, you get to find the solution that gives you more attention.
While you are listening, it is important for you to be the leader of one of these three categories: quality, price, or convenience. Choose wisely, and after choosing, solve the problems that allow you to further establish your brand for quality, price, or convenience.
After you come up with the solution that further establishes your brand’s quality, price, and convenience, all you need to do is become popular. Grow a following using social networks, spread the word about your brand, and create a blog dedicated to that brand. At this point, you have the foundation in place. All you need to do is get people to see what you have done.
Our niches are similar to stampedes. There are thousands or even millions of people in our niches competing for attention. The people in the front of the stampede get the most attention. In a marathon, the top 10 runners get the most attention because they have big leads. After those people and a few others, the giant mass of runners are neck and neck with no space to spare.
Entrepreneurs and business owners are striving towards being at the front of the stampede The need to Lead The Stampede has become more important than ever. My upcoming book, Lead The Stampede, will show you how to become a leader of your niche.
