Stand Out from the Crowd and Out-Perform the Competition by Filling in the Blanks, Says Author Connie Podesta

Imagine a game of fill-in-the-blanks that empowers people to stand out. That’s what award-winning author Connie Podesta brings in her latest book, “10 Ways to Stand Out From the Crowd”. Her fill-in-the-blank questions strike chords like crazy. Why? Because they’re personal and unique to each individual.

Dallas, TX – July 14, 2011 (via — To be successful today, it’s essential to STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD. It’s as simple as being the big text among the little text. Prices are similar, products and services look alike, and the competition is closing in with new strategies every day. We need to ask ourselves: What do we bring to the table that is so memorable, so outstanding, and so special that people will choose us?

“In this day and age, it takes uniqueness and creativity to stand out from the crowd,” says Connie Podesta ( ), author of the award-winning new book, 10 Ways to Stand Out from the Crowd. “But if we’re to stand out in ways that help us out-think and out-perform the competition, we need to know ourselves better. How? By asking ourselves pointed questions.”

Anyone who has read 10 Ways to Stand Out from the Crowd can immediately fill in the big three blanks below:

* What makes me memorable is _____________.

* What makes my work outstanding is _____________.

* What makes my value special is _____________.

“Writing down what we think may seem elementary. But it is vastly important,” says Podesta, whose STAND OUT STRATEGIES are summarized at . Putting words on paper triggers a spiderweb of other thoughts that helps narrow our most amazing qualities to the absolute best. Try it. Right now. And keep these two tips in mind:

* Don’t erase anything. Leave old words where they are and start new words beside them. Together, they form patterns and open a window into the heart.

* List more than just one thing – maybe half a dozen. Then start whittling away by being as honest as possible.

“To get to your truest self, you need to let go and let your mind and heart go to work,” says Podesta, whose strategies for fill-in-the-blank self-assessment are described in her YouTube video at . “What does that look like? Following the tips. We need to turn our editors off while filling-in-the-blanks… or we’ll end up with just that – blanks. So start right now. Find what makes you memorable. What makes your work outstanding. And what makes your value special.”
