@dirktheman .. I’m softspoken, almost introvert. How do I get people to notice/hear me? It seems I’m often overlooked.
ANSWER: I know how you feel. There was one summer I was so shy I couldn’t speak at all to the other kids. Everyone thought I was “special needs”. Eventually my parents pulled me out of the camp. I just simply couldn’t speak.
Often I don’t go to dinners I’m invited to because I’m shy about talking.
But think of it this way.
Words, like any market: is ruled by supply and demand.
What you are telling me is that your supply of words is limited. So when you talk, make sure every word is meaningful. Then demand will go up. Then, because supply is limited, demand will go WAY up. Before you know it, people will practically be throwing themselves at you to hear you speak.
Your introversion then can be used to create value for yourself. Every thing that you thought was a problem is actually an asset. Use it wisely.
i am introverted as well. thinkof it this way: value is a function of supply and demand. your supply of words is limited so..
