    Overcoming The Opinions of Others To Achieve Your Wildest Dreams w/ Imane “Pokimane” Anys EP 1443

    enMay 24, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Belonging vs Fitting In and Finding Connection Through Online Gaming and StreamingFinding a sense of belonging means being understood to your core and building deep relationships, which can be achieved through shared interests like online gaming. Content creators need to balance audience feedback with their own passions for long-term success.

      Belonging is about feeling understood to one's core by people around, while fitting in means being socially acceptable. Cultural and racial differences often make people feel lonely, but online gaming and streaming create a space where people can bond over a common interest. It is a trial and error process for content creators to optimize positive audience feedback without losing touch with what they enjoy doing. Sometimes, they need to reevaluate if they are doing what they want to do versus what their audience wants them to do. It is essential to build deep friendships and relationships where one feels a sense of belonging, even if they come from a different background or culture.

    • Preventing Burnout in Content CreationTo prevent burnout in content creation, focus on what you enjoy most and optimize your output. Use a Venn diagram to prioritize what people want from you and what you want to do. Consider taking breaks every two years to avoid burnout.

      Content creation can lead to burnout and the feeling of being overwhelmed. It is important to take a step back and reevaluate what you want to do by creating a Venn diagram of what people want from you and what you want to do. You should focus on what you want to do and do it the most. It is important to find happiness and health by optimizing your output. Pokimane felt the need to completely reinvent herself and this was a difficult decision for her. Taking a break every two years can help prevent burnout. Streaming content might seem easy, but it requires a lot of energy, and every streamer has a different approach.

    • Balancing revenue streams and mental health in the world of streamingStreamers can prioritize their mental health by minimizing negative comments, seeking therapy, and focusing on enriching their followers' souls. It's important to seek help when needed and be considerate of oneself and others.

      The primary revenue streams for streamers are subscription revenue, ad revenue, and donations. Female streamers have to deal with constant comments on their appearance which can impact their mental health. Minimizing the negative aspects, having moderators to remove negative comments, filtering certain words and spending time offline can help. Therapy is also a useful tool to deal with the downsides of being chronically online. To positively influence viewers, content creators should focus on enriching someone's soul than just optimizing their appearance. The biggest lesson from therapy is to seek help when it feels like too much and being considerate of oneself and others.

    • Navigating the Online Space: Tips for Dealing with Criticism and Negativity.It's important to take care of your mental health, seek validation from like-minded people, and not let the opinions of unqualified individuals affect your self-worth. Women creators may face more challenges but seeking therapy and advice from admires can prevent cyclical crises. Mental health is a priority when navigating the online space.

      Criticism and negativity are inevitable in the online world, but it's important to focus on validation and reassurance from like-minded people. Women may have an advantage in standing out as a minority, but they also face unfair treatment and hate campaigns that male creators do not. It's crucial to take care of your mental health and seek therapy if needed to manage the overwhelming nature of non-stop streaming and harassment. Accept that not everyone will like you and don't let the opinions of unqualified individuals affect your self-worth. Seek advice from those you admire and focus on making big changes to prevent cyclical crises. Mental health is essential in navigating the online space.

    • Pokimane on Being a Woman in the Gaming CommunityDespite facing misogyny, Pokimane finds fulfillment through positive interactions with her audience and believes the internet offers opportunities for deeper connections and escape from modern-day issues.

      Imane “Pokimane” Anys, a popular online gaming streamer, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of being a woman in the gaming community. She mentions that while the community has improved over the years, the gaming industry still faces some misogyny. However, Imane loves the interaction with her audience the most and finds fulfillment in having a positive influence on someone else's life. She has been streaming for almost a decade and feels like she belongs to her own little space within the community. In terms of mental health and motivation struggles, social media and modern-day issues, which can make people feel isolated and lacking in purpose, are part of the problem. However, the internet can offer a great escape and opportunities for deeper connections through shared interests and hobbies like gaming.

    • Finding a balance between validation and self-care.Prioritize your own goals and mental health, manage ego and validation through journaling and therapy, challenge societal expectations and focus on fulfilling your own desires for a happier life.

      It's important to find a balance between seeking validation from others and doing things for yourself. It can be helpful to create your own rubric and goals, rather than following traditional ideas of success. Journaling and cognitive behavioral therapy can assist in managing ego and validation. While online communities can provide a sense of belonging and acceptance, it's crucial to not rely on them too much and prioritize your mental health. It's also important to challenge the 'shoulds' instilled by parents, communities, and society and focus on your wants instead. This can be a difficult process and may require rewiring your brain, but ultimately it leads to a happier and more fulfilling life.

    • Prioritize Your Fulfillment and Relationships to Grow as a PersonLet go of old goals and prioritize what fulfills you and fosters rewarding relationships. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there authentically, even if it doesn't cater to your audience. Choose who you want to be and what you want to prioritize for dynamic growth.

      To grow as a person and experience new things, it's important to let go of old goals and constantly figure out what you find fulfilling. Replicating sentiments that don't relate to work and having rewarding relationships with trusted friends can make you feel loved and enough. Putting yourself out there in a way that's not optimized for your audience can still be fulfilling if it resonates with people. Parents may take time to understand non-traditional careers like content creation. Having caring and attentive parents is a privilege regardless of their strictness. To be dynamic, you must choose who you want to be at any point by changing your decisions, and prioritize what you want to optimize or reach.

    • Overcoming Challenges and Making a Positive Impact as a Content Creator.Seek advice from trusted individuals, respond consciously and consider the community's benefit. Mindful influence on followers is crucial. Persevere and react in a way that ensures safety for all women.

      When facing difficult situations and feeling the ego kicking in, it is important to get advice from people you trust and formulate a conscious response. To make a good impact, one needs to consider how their response would benefit the community as a whole. Being a content creator, especially in the live streaming and gaming community, requires one to be mindful of the influence they have on their followers. Despite facing difficulties and inappropriate behavior, persevering and reacting in a way that ensures other women feel safe has been the most significant decision for Imane 'Pokimane' Anys, as evidenced by the messages of gratitude she continues to receive.

    • Prioritizing Community and Self-Care as a Content Creator.As a content creator, it's important to connect with your audience, build a community, and prioritize your own balance and fulfillment beyond financial stability. It's okay to shift revenue streams and pursue other interests outside of your platform.

      Imane 'Pokimane' Anys emphasizes the importance of connecting with her audience through specific content meant to resonate with them and build a community, even if it's not always a viral hit. She also discusses how she's shifting her revenue streams by pursuing other interests and projects beyond her daily streams, recognizing the limits of being tied to a platform that demands constant energy and output. Pokimane reflects on the difficult decision to prioritize her own balance and fulfillment over solely focusing on grinding for financial stability, acknowledging the privilege that comes with being a content creator but also noting the challenges that many others face in finding job satisfaction and personal fulfillment.

    • The Path to Success as a Content CreatorTo achieve success in content creation, prioritize your health, stay true to yourself, learn from mistakes, disconnect from social media, and spend time in real life. Start by taking care of your mind and body before spending time creating content.

      To succeed as a content creator, it takes timing, talent, and skill, but it's not easy as many struggle to make a living from it. However, it's inspiring and impressive to reinvent oneself and grow as Imane “Pokimane” Anys did. If you start early, prioritize your health, stay true to yourself, and learn from your mistakes, you can achieve great success. Before spending 10 hours a day creating content, spend an hour meditating, getting sunlight, eating a balanced meal, and moving your body. It's important to disconnect from social media, especially for younger generations, as it can shape your mind and affect your self-perception. Follow people for the right reasons and spend more time in real life.

    • Balancing reality and online representation in content creationFocus on creating fulfilling content without sacrificing happiness or fixating on appearance. Be mindful of the addiction of making money and be open to inspiration from others.

      Imane 'Pokimane' Anys suggests spending an equal amount of time in a realistic environment to balance the perception of what a real person looks like versus the optimized, filtered, and modified online representation. She also advises on not getting too caught up in appearance's fixation and emphasizes on fun and more fulfilling content creation. Making more money at a young age might not be detrimental, but it can become addicting, and one must understand what they are sacrificing and what genuinely makes them happy. Some may judge you based on how much money you make, while others may find it inspirational.

    • Importance of an Incremental Approach to Money ManagementStart small, save a portion of income, have both checking and saving accounts, treat money as a tool and not a source of scarcity. A mathematical optimization mindset and learning the value of hard work can help manage finances.

      When focused on financial goals and work, it's easy to set aside everything else, including health and social life. Having an incremental approach to money management can help in handling it as income grows. It's important to be mindful of saving a portion of income and having both checking and savings accounts. Starting out with a small job like a newspaper delivery can teach the value of hard work and exchange of time and effort for money. A mathematical optimization mindset can also be helpful in managing finances. Money doesn't necessarily have to be a source of scarcity, it's possible to handle it in an abundant way with proper management.

    • Investing in Health and RelationshipsPrioritize investing in your health and relationships, experiment with spending to identify what brings the most return, and communicate openly with loved ones about the challenges of working in the public eye.

      Investing in yourself and your health is a worthwhile investment that pays off in the long run. Experimenting with spending on different things and being intentional about it can help you identify where you get the most return. Good friendships and relationships require effort and regular communication. Compartmentalizing time and being intentional about creating space for relationships can help manage them while working nonstop and having a big audience. Communication is key to ensuring that people in your personal life are comfortable with being in the public eye. Developing deep friendships based on being yourself without cameras can help carry that relationship into public life if they're comfortable with it.

    • The Importance of Educating Viewers and Streamer Safety in Parasocial RelationshipsRespectful approach towards streamers is crucial in parasocial relationships. Streamers must set boundaries to ensure personal security. Being a people-pleaser and quickly adapting to feedback are key qualities of a successful streamer. Cultivating compassion and gratitude in life is essential.

      Parasocial relationships can make viewers feel close to streamers, but it's important to remember that they don't actually know them. Educating viewers on how to approach streamers respectfully has helped with this issue. Streamers need to set boundaries to avoid security concerns and stay safe. Being a great streamer involves being a people pleaser, quickly adapting to feedback, having a big personality, and speaking constantly. In life, cultivating compassion and gratitude are important. Remember that everyone you encounter has a unique backstory that informs their behavior, and gratitude can keep you grounded and content no matter what life you lead.

    • The Importance of Self-Care and Connection with Others.Focus on what brings you joy and fulfillment, treat others well, seek support when needed, acknowledge breakdowns and prioritize self-care. Wishing others well is also crucial for personal happiness and overall well-being.

      Take care of yourself and tend to the garden. You can touch the people around you that you see, treat them well. You don't have to worry about every problem in the world. Just help those that you can help. Focus on what brings you joy and fulfillment and pursue it with all your might. Seek support when you need it, even if you're young or in the public eye. Acknowledge breakdowns and take care of yourself. And always remember to wish everyone well, because at the end of the day, happiness and health matter most.

    Becoming an entrepreneur is a difficult journey, but an enriching one and one that is worth taking. Today on The School of Greatness, I have Gary Vaynerchuk here to share his secrets about entrepreneurship, family, and self-confidence to help you on your business journey.

    • How Gary’s work is more art than work
    • How humility plays into being a success

    75: Overcome your Money Blocks and Starving Artist Mindset

    75: Overcome your Money Blocks and Starving Artist Mindset

    I'm talking about what I believe to be a chronic problem in the performing arts industry. That is suffering from starving artist syndrome.

    The problem is that we don't know how to value ourselves at times, because we're so passionate about the art, creative process and the giving our of our energy to others, we can put ourselves secondary to our craft. 

    I get very personal in this episode and share my experience with overcoming my starving own starving artist mindset.

    Ultimately I can give you all the systems and payment processes in the world, but unless you believe in your core that you are worthy of what you want and need from your clients and business, then any system I give you is redundant, because you need to believe it, to action it. 

    Let's talk about money blocks and self reflect. Enjoy the show!
