Masing-masing Diri kita adalah Perusahaan Media!

tulisan Yuswohady” “You are Media Company”…Ini Keyakinan & apa yang saya jalani selama ini!

Yup!!!
Ketika media menjadi demikian murah, mendekati zero;
Ketika alat-alat untuk memproduksi konten demikian murah, mendekati zero;
maka tak terelakkan lagi, Anda menjadi MEDIA COMPANY!!!
Seperti umumnya perusahaan media, Anda bisa memproduksi konten untuk disebarkan kepada audiens Anda.

Kemunculan media sosial menjadikan media demikian murah. Mendekati zero.

be Confident!

confident1Yesterday, I companied my first son (Mulia) on his first music class session. Arriving there, a ladies welcomed us and friendly have a chat with us. She doesn’t look like Australian or Western but she is very confident than some Australians that I know. Then after I took her business card, I known that she is the director of that school. She is Malaysian-Chinese so she can speak Melayu, a bit Indonesia, and definetely English well.

These are what surprised me: even she is not Australian, she is foreigner, but She is VERY CONFIDENT to any people, she can succeed running a BUSINESS here, and she is very friendly. What I learned from that ‘hikmah’ is:

1. When we talk to people, first important thing that they will see on us is our CONFIDENCE! (this was what I thought in that time)

2. When we are confident –> then people will RESPECT to us! (they will not look down on you, because they will carious who you are actually:)

3. When we are confident –> our MENTAL will be on OUR CONTROL –> our MIND & BRAIN will work normal and good

So…be CONFIDENT!!! any time!
