If you’ve been putting off updating your business profile photo because you’re uncomfortable in front of a camera, you could be slowing your success.
Many people convince themselves that they don’t look good in photos, but as professional photographers, we know that’s just not true!
Other people who see an image of you will have only positive thoughts about it. But often when we look at the same image of ourselves, negative thoughts start flooding in. We might start making excuses like, “I should lose ten pounds/I should get a tan/I should get a haircut/I should shop for new clothes, etc., before I get my photo taken.” All those “should” statements are examples of thought distortions.
What Are Thought Distortions?
Thought distortions are exaggerated or irrational thought patterns that can warp your sense of reality. They tend to skew your perception and distort your self-image. Negative thought patterns lead you to make excuses and put things off. They can block your path toward happiness, wealth, and success.
Don’t let thought distortions steal your joy and hold you back from taking that next step!
Why It’s Important to Update Your Profile Picture
Whether you’re updating your LinkedIn profile or your website bio, it’s important to use a current photo. Your business profile represents you as your most authentic, most professional self. If you use an outdated image, people might suspect you of fraud or assume that you’re trying to hide something.
Using a current image inspires trust. Think of it as a dating profile—if you misrepresent yourself by using a photo from ten years ago, you will not have a very good chance of building a lasting relationship. Your professional profile is much the same. You’ll have a much better chance of building relationships with clients and investors when you represent yourself authentically.
