If you’re an introvert like me and you want to make more videos but you find yourself often not feeling like making videos I’ve got five tips that are gonna help hey it’s Sean McCabe with seanwes tv I’m an introvert yet I published seven videos a week how is this possible I also podcast I also do Instagram stories you know I’m just putting myself out there all the time how in the world can I do this well it’s not easy it hasn’t always been easy and in fact a lot of times I’m just not feeling it but I have systems in place for creating content even when I’m not feeling it or more specifically to work around not feeling it as an introvert we don’t naturally want to be in front of the camera or in the middle of a crowd or the center of attention at a party that’s just not where we feel the most comfortable we’d rather be curled up in a beanbag in our room reading a book playing games you know drawing doing things by ourselves that is how we charge so if we’re gonna put ourselves out there and we need to we need the attention no matter what you’re doing no matter what kind of business brand channel page whatever you’re trying to do you need attention and you have to be on video that’s just the reality by 2021 80% of the world’s Internet traffic will be video so you’re either making video or you’re irrelevant so how can you do that if you’re an introvert well I’ve got five tips for you tip number one schedule it okay you can’t wait until you’re feeling it because as an introvert you’re never going to feel like being out of your element so when are you going to make videos this video for instance is scheduled it’s on my schedule I actually did several calls this morning I recorded two other videos and I did a live stream and you better believe when I was just sitting down at my office my desk chair I wasn’t feeling like making a video but I looked at my calendar and it said there’s the video I got to record a video the other thing is I know what I’m going to record a video on I’m not waiting until I feel like it I’m looking the scheduled tip number to speak to one person the most common mistake I see is people saying hey guys or hey all of you and it’s really bad for introverts especially because it puts a lot of pressure on you you feel like if I’m gonna make a video if I’m gonna do a live stream I’m gonna be talking to all of these people everyone who will see it all of my followers all of my subscribers and that feels really scary it feels overwhelming the same thing carries over to public speaking you stand on a stage you’re looking at everyone in the audience and it feels like you’re talking to all of these people and that can be really overwhelming speak to one person and the reason this makes a lot of sense is because one person is going to watch your video that’s just gonna happen many times typically you don’t have a hundred people huddled around a laptop watching a video at one time I guess in that case it might make sense for you to say hey guys but speak to one person not just because it’ll feel more personal personable for them but you’ll feel like it’s more of an intimate conversation right now I’m not thinking about the hundreds of people who are gonna see this I’m thinking about one person and I’m speaking to that one person that’s what helps it feel natural and it puts me at ease tip number three charge up first okay so as introverts we’re not weird we just charge differently we get our energy differently whereas extroverts like to be around people and that’s how they get their energy we as introverts like to be alone we like to be by ourselves to charge up that’s how we get our energy it doesn’t mean that we never want to be around people or we never want to talk to friends that’s just how we charge so realizing that making videos extroverted talking to people talking it all really is spending energy well what do you do when you know you need to spend let’s say money you need to make a purchase right you save up you save up some money and then you spend it in the same way we’re spending energy when we create videos so we need to save up charge up store up energy before we spend it that means being responsible about how we conserve and preserve our energy so if you know you’ve got a video today video you have to make because you scheduled it since it’s coming up you want to make sure you have time to charge you have time to sleep you have time to rest and be alone tip number four make a list when you go to record a video what you don’t want to do is set up your lights set up your camera set up your microphone and then stand in front of the camera and look like you’re a deer in the headlights you have no idea what you want to talk about you have no idea what you want to make a video about I knew I needed to record a video today but I didn’t just come over here stand in front of the camera and figure out what to say I knew in advance I had a list I made that list in advance I went to the topics and it said make a video about making videos as an introvert and here we go this also combats the issue of not feeling like it it doesn’t matter if I feel like it it’s scheduled and I know what my topic is so I show up I speak on the topic and then I’m done tip number five focus on the people you’ll help yes it takes energy to make videos it takes energy to speak to people as an introvert so you have to find a reason for doing it a reason for showing up a reason for sharing your message so sure there’s these tricks like schedule it and make a topic list but at the end of the day the reason I’m doing this where I source my passion for this is knowing that it’s going to help you I’m thinking about you the viewer specifically one person in individually who’s going to benefit from this who’s an introvert just like me who’s gonna get something out of this and realize you know what I can overcome that feeling I can show up I can make a video anyway this is gonna help you overcome that hurdle that excites me I’m gonna help someone as a result of making this so that helps me show up it helps me you know this is genuine enthusiasm that I feel when I’m here even though beforehand I thought I need to go make a video when I’m there when I’m in the moment I get excited because I know who I’m going to help so I’d love to hear from you
