He tried matching their hairstyle, getting the bangs, and styling it with moose, but that only resulted in a disaster resembling a “raccoon’s butt.” …

If it were as easy to create an audience as it is to take an online course or follow a checklist of steps, everyone who started a blog would have thousands of readers and each podcast would have thousands of listeners. Every politician would win elections and every actor would have thousands of adoring fans.

People who gain traction, attention, loyalty, and manage to stand out in a sea of noise understand the psychology of building an audience.

Building an audience for your work requires a combination of work, social intelligence, and an understanding of human behavior. …

Of all the areas in our lives, none shape our behavior, health, and happiness as much as our environment. We are byproducts of our environment. We can’t always control the circumstances or outcomes of our lives, but we can shape our environment.

If your environment makes you feel stable, balanced, and grounded, you’re more likely to feel confident taking measured risks and exploring new opportunities. Other people may notice your calm, unhurried demeanor and be drawn to you. — Ingrid Fetel Lee, Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness

And when we shape our environment, we access the power to shape our lives.

Towards the end of 2018, I was miserable, depressed, and hopeless.

  • A good friend of mine had drowned in Mexico.
  • The woman I was seeing broke up with me two weeks before my 40th birthday and my business partner and I parted ways.
  • The Launch of An Audience of One had failed to live up to my expectations. Ironically, letting go of your expectations was one of the primary messages of the book.

Every single time I got back up after falling, it felt like life punched me in the face and knocked me back down. By every criterion for success I had set for myself, I was failing. I found myself in tears at the dinner table at my parents’ house, unable to explain to my dad why my life was falling apart while my sister was happily engaged and planning a wedding. …
