Develop Rock Solid Confidence In Your Ability To Succeed

Last week, I shared with you a few tips for tapping into your unstoppable potential.  One reason you may have struggled with this in the past is due to a lack of confidence.

Feeling hesitant about what you’re trying to accomplish affects all of us at one time or another. If you’re ready to own your value and create more success in your business, it’s time to move away from “I don’t know if I can do this…” to “This is what I’m going to accomplish!”

Shifting your mindset starts with making a decision to do things differently. For example, if you are used to focusing on all of the things you “can’t do,” “don’t deserve” or feel unsure about, you’ll want to make a conscious decision to re-train how to talk to and about yourself. Start replacing those negative comments with statements such as, “I can do this. I can create my own success. I deserve to be successful! I will be successful!

It starts with a choice.  You must choose to think differently and act differently than you have before.  It’s that simple.

Embracing the thought that you REALLY can create the business of your dreams – that what you really want and what is actually possible is within your reach – will catapult you toward success faster than any tip, resource, or strategy I will give you.

The sooner you are able to wrap your head around this concept, embrace and own it, the sooner you will achieve your desired success.

As you reflect on your accomplishments over the past 12 months and contemplate what you will achieve within the coming year, consider the adjustments needed in how you currently view your business:

  • Have you set a precedent for letting your clients dictate how you run your business? If so, it’s time to put an end to that. You can’t run your business for the sole benefit of your clients. It has to work for YOU.
  • Do you find yourself second-guessing your decisions? If you are going to be a successful business owner over the long haul, you have to take decisive action and stand behind the decisions you make.  See your choices through to the end and give your all to making them work instead of worrying about if you made the right choice or not. (Even if you made a “wrong” choice, you can often make it work if you give it your best.)
  • Are you allowing the opinions of naysayers to hold you back from reaching your full potential as an entrepreneur? Make the choice to not allow ANYONE (including yourself), undermine your dreams and make you second-guess them.  Otherwise you might as well go back to being employed by someone else.

I implore you to approach your business from a place of confidence.  You are enough, you know enough and you can truly make a difference in the lives of others!

Present a confident stance with your tone of voice, presence, marketing materials, and especially the way you deliver your services. Be proud of your decision to take ownership of your career and stand in the service of others.

I believe in you!  I believe that you have the talent, tenacity, and drive to be a fabulously successful entrepreneur!  But, that’s not enough.

You have to believe in YOU too.  Because if you don’t, no one else will!

Your Action Plan For This Week:

1. Remind yourself of where you have been and congratulate yourself on where you are NOW. Resolve to no longer second guess your decisions.
2. Be determined to own your decisions and move forward with confidence.  Not only will you have greater respect for yourself, but others will show you greater respect, as well.

3. Written Exercise: Get clear on your version of a successful business. Visualize what success means to you. Write down exactly what you see. How many clients do you have? What is your monthly income? What is your work schedule? How do you spend your personal time?

4. After completing this exercise, put it where you can review it daily.

Comments

  1. yes – this is exactly right – the point being is that we can become distracted from our own thoughts by many of the triggers and concepts and ideas and thoughts that we are surrounded with – bombarded with – that slowly seep into our thoughts and that seem to be in some ways so much more valid and boisterous and – well so much more confident than out own – however – over confidence – is very often a sign of insecurity – which is from what I understand an attempt at confidence without the actual work or substance behind it –
