The Wall is a metaphor of intentional isolation between us and reality. It protects us from feeling. Each incident that brings pain and disillusion becomes another brick in the wall. Eventually the wall becomes a prison separating us from our real self. Deep stuff 🙂
After seeing the film, I began to think about the ‘walls’ people construct in relation to our business. For some, every business they join becomes another brick in the wall. Their money is the mortar.
Slowly, these bricks form a wall – and the wall becomes a square – and the square becomes a prison. Flashed on the walls are feeling of frustration, anger and disappoint. Dreams aren’t realized.
What is the hammer that breaks the wall: success or skill? I believe skill is what leads to success. Skills are gained through repetition of best practices. A best practice is a tested method or strategy that works.
Many marketers never make it their focus to gain the skills. Listen friend, programs come and go. They always have and always will. I challenge you to become a skilled marketer.
The skills revolve around lead generation and follow up. Skills take a lot of forms: email writing, traffic generation, video and social marketing etc.
The good news is that you don’t have to become an expert all at once. Just focus on mastering a couple things at a time. Become so good at it that people want what you have – skills.
With skills you can break the wall.
