Humble is A Quality that Only Few People Possess

In response to Neil Patel blog post which landed in our email 6/07/17 here at Girlfridayz titled Should You Create a Company or Personal Blog? prick our curiosity and see what Neil Patel recommend and think.

We were somewhat surprised but not overly surprise as he bears the trait of highly successful people, when they think so to speak they "walk on water", which I mean they have an ego so big that they think they can look down on people and call them a "nobody " he is a narcissist in term of the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, whose only vice may be his inflated Sense of Self and view money, social status, titled (executive, CEO or the like) as interesting people to talk too or learn something from as "they are somebody"

Here an excerpt of his post below which pinpoint the latter, tucked neatly within the paragraph subtitled what if you have zero brand equity trying to make it flows as part of the text "but what if your a nobody starting completely from scratch" so for an untrained eyes it maybe difficult to spot but for us here at Girlfridayz we are not skim reading we read every word and sentence and people show you reflective behaviour and practice all the time let me explain what we mean.

Reflective writing is the expression on paper/screen of some of the mental processes of reflection. Other forms of expressing reflection are in speech, in film, in graphic portrayal, music etc. The expression of reflection is not, however, a direct mirror of what happens in the head. It is a representation of that process within the chosen medium - and reflection represented in writing, for example, will be different to that encompassed in a drawing. In other words, in making a representation of reflection, we shape and model the content of our reflection according to many influences. (J. Moon, 2004).

J. Moon perfectly wrote a piece on reflective practices, how we people in general reflect on event, experiences, and thought including inner deeper thought and logical processes. So Neil Patel paragraph is truly his thought and reflection clearly in this excerpt on a one liner he let is personality shine and so to speak run away with him when writing this content marketing piece which is really logical to him as he clearly say it.

Here is Neil Patel excerpt we discussing in this article

"What if you have zero brand equity?

After reading about these three examples, you may be saying that of course having a personal blog works for executives and business leaders.

They’re already well-established, and people are naturally interested in what they have to say.

But what if you’re a nobody starting completely from scratch?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to opt for a company blog so you can build your reputation?

I definitely see the logic behind this point. I really do.

But the way I look at it, you can still build up your business, generate leads, boost conversions, and all that good stuff with a personal blog."(Neil Patel, 2017)

Well I am afraid that the people Neil Patel describing in his paragraph which make logical sense to him are all suffer from Nepotism in a sense that they would not found remotely interesting a person who does not have a social status or professional status or even lots of money, which sadden us at Girlfridayz because we believe that everyone as something interesting to say.

Here what we believe in at Girlfridayz it is all in this fantastic video

It may not be your cup of tea or it may not be the best thing since slice bread and it can comes from anybody, hence listening to people is key, as you do not know what they can teach you at any age from the time we can speak and reason. Your title his only a title, your achievement is only your achievement, your money is only your money all these three examples does not defined who you are as a person or your action as a person, or a person which is either good or bad.

Reputation is a tricky one because you can be a big business, well known for your bad reputation and yet still have a huge following, lots of customers and you can have a very good reputation and a big business, well known, lots of customers. As a reputation is a widespread belief that someone or something has a particular characteristic.

In another word do not confuse self-love and Narcissism which are two different thing as Narcissism have varied degree from very mild to extreme and the extreme version is classified as having a mental health disorder. But many people are Narc to some extent and does not have a mental health imbalance.

As self-love is been content with the work-in-progress that we are and not seek the approval of others, comparing yourself only to who you were in the past and not to others, not thinking you are better than anyone else, and take reasonable care of you for you.

At Girlfridayz in term of Digital Marketing and SEO Neil Patel knows is stuff very well and we tends to follows him and subscribe to him too as most of his post content are good and on cue when it regarding Marketing.

However it also confirmed our thought of him as a person as when we read his bio on his blog, we thought this kind of recommendation might have gone to his head, because this is really brilliant and a very good achievement in someone life and he maybe bit pretentious but to what extent we wondered.

"He is a New York Times best selling author. The Wall Street Journal calls him a top influencer on the web, Forbes says he is one of the top 10 marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says he created one of the 100 most brilliant companies. He was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations."

So we could clearly linked his logical thought and what make sense to him that if you are not well-establish and well known you are a "nobody", which is what some highly successful people with an inflated sense of self will think of others who does not match his status or highly successful status hence becoming by default uninteresting people.


In Girlfridayz view these people there are missing something we know what it is at Girlfridayz do you know?

Seems a little quiet over here
