“Opinions are like orgasms… mine matters most and I really don’t care if you have one.”
Sylvia Plath was my kinda gal, despite her tragic death and struggles with life.
She had her own ideas and a voice to speak them.
She was a force of nature, and the only thing that could stop her was herself, in the end.
You could learn a lot from her attitude to other people’s opinions… because having your own opinions and finding the courage to speak them is important if you want to stand out from the crowd.
Which is what Joe and I were nattering about on this week’s podcast:
- Why you should never let other people’s opinions stifle you: it’s a betray of who you are, and life is way too short for that
- How everyone — including me — is wracked with self-doubt at times and that’s fine… as long as you don’t let it paralyse you
- Why it’s not just okay to have a strong opinion, it’s crucial if you want people to notice you and your business
- The very important caveat I make to what I just said about having an opinion (and if you don’t pay attention to my caveat, you’ll look like an idiot)
- How your opinions can change your products and services from just another thing to buy into something people will fall over themselves to get their hands on
