One thing you need to remember when you are building your business online – which is intrinsically connected with being more visible everywhere – particularly on your personal profile – is that this is a long game, not a sprint. Like growing a tree.

When you plant the seed, it takes ages before you can even tell if it is going to survive. Then one day you see a small little green shoot. You watch it getting bigger and bigger every day, but it is not yet a tree.

It takes years for it to start resembling a tree. Many years to really gain the strength, centuries to create a powerful presence.

I am not saying it will take you centuries to succeed. But it will not take you a few months either, let’s be real. Well, it can, but you have to have solid systems in place and really know your target audience. THAT takes time to figure out also.

So stop getting upset that the seed you planted is not giving you fruit yet. That your posts do not get raving comments thanking you for your brilliance and inspiration.

Give it time.
Nurture your visibility by being consistent with your posts and your message.
Respect the time it takes to grow your visibility.
You are making an investment here, a long term.

Another thing, just like you cannot see the nutrients work in the soil, you sometimes do not know that you ARE being watched.

In fact, you are being watched so much more than you can imagine.

And those silent viewers still experience the power of your content. They connect, resonate and build trust in you!
They are often the ones that invest in you. So your investment pays off.

Patience and trusting your journey is the key.

?Success IS the journey?, not the outcome.
