Here is some of my advice on how to grapple with and overcome self-doubt and begin to nurture and elevate your feelings of confidence and self-worth that will help your business thrive!
𝐄𝐦𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐔𝐧𝐢𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 Your business may have peers, but absolutely noone on the planet can do what you do! You're business is one of a kind and not one other person has your unique blend of skills and experience. Your Your tribe are looking for YOU and willing to invest in what only you can offer.
𝐊𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐋𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 Confidence thrives on knowledge so keep updating your skills and never stop learning! Keep on top the latest trends in your industry and network with fellow entreprenuers. The more you know, the more unshakeable your confidence becomes.
𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐀𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐞 Have you ever suffered from imposter syndrome? You are not alone! Its reassuring to realise that even the entrepeneurs and mentors that you most look up to and aspire to be like have had to battle with these feelings also. So, if you feel like you're just out here "faking it" remind yourself that your brain can be quite the trickster!
𝐂𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐖𝐢𝐧𝐬! Every single win should be acknowledged and celebrated. Its not just making an enourmous sale or signing on a massively important client that deserves a pop of the cork. Even the tiniest wins are moving you towards your dream goals!! So celebrate them!
𝐒𝐞𝐭 𝐀𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐌𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐬 You may have a dream in mind, but if it seems too far off to be real, remember that its easier to climb to a roof on a ladder with many rungs than it is on a ladder with only two! Acheiving bite-sized goals at a time can help you chart your progress and help you feel more self-assured.
Running your own business will always be scary but confidence is about being feeling able to take leaps of faith despite the risks.
Believe in yourself is not just a whimsical idea, its what you need to really put your foot forward so that your business can thrive and grow. Finding your self-confidence is sometimes not an easy road, but there are always communties and support and experts, like me, who are here to help you along the way!
