Boost Your Self-Belief and Confidence Now!
February 1, 2019
Many people fear that they are not good enough to make it work as an entrepreneur. If you’re feeling like this, it is worth reflecting on what makes you think that. Most of our fears are so unrealistic and the minute we start questioning and challenging our beliefs we realise we are being unreasonable.
Focus on what you can do, not on what you can’t do.
If you hear yourself saying “I can’t do this”, change it to “What can I do to be able to do it? Who can I ask for help? What can I learn that will enable me to do it? What can I do each day to move closer to my goal?” Little and consistent steps are the keys.
Always remember your vision of your business, your WHY and know that you have all the right skills, expertise, experience and knowledge to make it work. At the end of the day you created a product/service that solves a problem. Your voice is needed in this world, your ideal clients are currently stuck with their problem and they are waiting for you to present your solution to them. It is your duty to do it.
Don’t compare yourself to your competitors. It is not fair to compare your chapter 1 with their chapter 20. Don’t see them as competitors either, see them as people you can learn from. See them as inspiration, if they could become successful, so can you! And remember what makes your product/service unique is YOU. You are perfect just the way you are. I believe that everyone can make a difference. Be authentic and you will provide tremendous value in your own way. You don’t need to be an expert to attract the right people. People buy products from people they like, trust and relate to, so connect with your clients and many people will resonate with you.
80% of success is mindset and the rest is skills. The good thing about skills is that you can learn them, so focus on creating an unstoppable mindset and the rest will fall into place.
Start with what you have, don’t wait for a perfect time because the perfect time will never come, so start now.
Successful entrepreneurs are no more special than you. The only thing that sets them apart from ordinary people is their passion, their vision and unstoppable mindset. These are all the things you can work on too!
