If you are trying to get ahead in your career or just simply interested in expanding your circle of friends, then you need to be socially active. But how?
Become an AUTHORITY!
The key is establishing yourself as an authority on a topic that people care about. This way you not only have something to talk about but also a source of references for others when they want to find out more. For example, imagine being asked whether you like video games. Unless you’re willing to make it very obvious that you are not a ‘normal’ adult, the best response is probably going to be something like, “Actually, I love video games! In fact, I am fairly knowledgeable about them…” From there on, everything becomes much easier. You can now make the most out of this one subject and become an authority on it within your social circle – and beyond.
How to Appear as an Authority without Being One – Master B*ll Sh*t.
If you want to become an authority in your field, you will have to master your own expertise and be able to communicate it effectively with others. Being an authority on a subject simply means you are an expert in that subject. However, you don’t have to be an expert to act like one. You just have to be able to portray yourself as an expert. Becoming an authority on a topic is not an overnight task. It’s a gradual process that involves a lot of hard work and dedication. You can’t simply put on a title and expect people to believe you are an authority. You have to earn that.
Build Relationships – Create a Cult Like Following
When you first become part of a new group or start making new friends, the first thing you should do is start a conversation. Don’t try to show off your brilliance and knowledge on the first day because you’re likely to come across as overbearing and pushy. Instead, try to have a casual, relaxed conversation like you would with an old friend. In this situation, the best thing you can do is ask them a few questions about themselves. You don’t want to steer the conversation entirely to yourself because people will get bored. If you actively try to build a new relationship, people are likely to remember you. If you simply want to remain in the background and avoid being remembered, then you are better off keeping quiet.
There is a good chance that certain topics are relevant to your interests and passions. These are what we call your ‘passion topics’. Passion topics are those areas of interest that you are truly passionate about. Creating content on these topics is likely to make you stand out from the crowd. For example, if you love reading about various topics that have to do with entrepreneurship, you can start creating your own blog about these topics, and soon people will recognize you as an authority on the subject. You can also write about any topic that you feel passionate about. It can be a sport, a hobby, travel, or even something as small as a specific type of food. You don’t have to be an expert in the subject; you just have to be passionate and knowledgeable about it.
Keywords and Language
When you start creating content and want to portray yourself as an authority, you need to make sure that you are using keywords and language that connects you to your audience. You want people to be able to click on your article or read your blog and immediately see that you are an authority on the subject. You don’t have to be a huge expert in your field. You just have to appear like one. You can use the keyword tool to get some ideas for the keywords that you should include in your content.
Show Off Your Skills
Becoming an authority on a topic isn’t just about writing articles and creating content. It’s also about showing off your skills. For example, if you love soccer, you can easily become an authority on the sport. You can show off your skills by joining your local soccer club and playing in as many games as possible. You can also take part in tournaments and represent your city or country if you are good enough. This way, you can expand your circle of friends by joining local soccer clubs and tournaments. You can also meet new people because soccer is a very social sport.
If you want to appear as an authority on a certain topic, you need to show that you are passionate about it. You also need to show that you are knowledgeable about it and that you are willing to share that knowledge with others. You can achieve this by actively participating in discussions, creating your own content, and showing off your skills. For example, if you want to appear as an authority on sports, you can start by attending sports events, joining sports clubs, and challenging others to friendly match-ups.
