How To Use List Building Where Successful Leadership Requires Courage

How do you use list building? Because I'm writing about a little-known secret about list building for traffic! You can get far more than business growth and profit from list building.

You get personal growth. Use list building to gain courage!

Successful business requires leadership. You've got unique advantages.

Advantages to you as a small business owner that others do not get:

(1) You can use list building to practice courage. Yes, practice courage!

(2) Practicing courage and growing as a leader are important to your business. Growth and profit flow from these.

That's not often recognized as a benefit when most people look at list building. So much so that it's become a little-known secret.

Consider what practicing courage can mean to you. Imagine how you would feel after you successfully practiced courage!

Your Steps:

(1) Practice courage.

(2) Succeed in growing in courage!

(3) Look in the mirror! Observe the confidence you see growing as you practice courage.

(4) Repeat because you can see and feel how that bit of success helps you.

In fact, you can grow as a leader if you simply use list building well!

How? I'll tell you how!

Here are 5 ways to grow as a leader by your own courage in list building:

(1) Attitude

Your attitude is contagious and attracts people to you who like and trust you.

(a) Your attitude shows your courage.

(b) Leaders allow their positive attitude to reach out to people.

(c) When you use list building your attitude actions touch people you can help. You're contagious!

Be courageous enough to shine you, yourself, your best self! Shine right into people’s lives as you do so.

(2) Bonding

Your behavior offers an opportunity for bonding.

(a) Show Courage Take a deep breath! Yes, you can be bonding with people through the courage you show. Yes, bonding can result from your words alone.

(b) Show Trust Your list building efforts can create a bonding effect. That bonding between you and the people you approach begins relationships. Business is an exchange of value based on relationships!

(3) Connecting

Connecting requires two-way communication.

(a) Be courageous enough to accept two-way communication.

(b) Reply personally when people ask questions. Yes, automation is great and it helps people get what they need step by step. But there are places for your personal touch. Replying personally is one!

(c) But be real! Be a leader who is courageous enough to reply as best you can to the intent of each of each question. But don't let people take advantage of you. It's okay to refer complicated questions to a product you offer or to someone else who specializes in helping people learn that.

Some use list building and don’t even use an email address that works! When “no reply” is an email address of the day, any reply at all is ahead of the pack.

(4) Daring

Be daring enough to be your best self.

(a) Leaders summon up the courage to be daring in their day to day life. Dare to let your own personality shine!

(b) By the way, some people will despise you for it. And that’s great, too. Seriously! Might as well repel people up front who don’t like you for who you are. They won't stick around long anyway.

(c) Don't be afraid to unsubscribe people who annoy you.

You can be the best you; you cannot be everything for everyone. Dare to be your own best self!

(5) Energy

Give!

(a) When you go flat out, giving of yourself without holding back, do you know what happens? You have more energy!

(b) Successful leaders give of their best self. The courage you use to do that creates boundless energy.

(c) When you’re using list building remember that successful leadership requires courage! And take action.

Go flat out with all your energy and give! Let your best you shine forth to the world without holding back.

Now? Go do it.

Pay attention to how your attitude, bonding, connecting, daring and energy help you. Successful leadership requires courage and courage leads to personal growth. It's a little-known secret that people can use list building to practice courage.

How you use list building matters. Use list building where successful leadership requires courage. You can grow as a person and as a leader. You can change lives as you fly off into your future with courage!
