Do you ever feel that a business breakthrough only happens to others and not you?
You are working incredibly hard, doing all the things you have been told to do, you keep going even on the days when you really don’t want to and yet you are not getting the results you want, not earning the money to sustain your business and it feels exhausting!
Let me tell you about a recent client of mine. She has been in business for 7 years and felt very stuck with her mindset when she came for coaching. She was struggling to believe in herself and was holding herself back with fear of failure and much more! What she produces is absolutely amazing and she gets fantastic feedback from her customers and yet she knew that she was holding herself back.
So she decided to invest in herself and WOW has it paid off! After 4 sessions of coaching she has just had her most successful launch and is reaching her financial goals and flying in her business! AMAZING isn’t it 🌟
You see your business will only grow as much as you do.
Self belief is huge in achieving your goals in your business. Believing in yourself IS the key to your success!
So is self belief something that you struggle with?
😩 Do you look at others and think they are better than you? They know more, they do it better than you, they look better and they sound better?
😩 Do you struggle to believe you are good enough? Perhaps you get stuck in the dreaded imposter – ‘what are people going to think of me’, ‘who wants to listen to me’, ‘I have nothing interesting to say” ‘I’m rubbish!”
😩 Or maybe the self doubt creeps in ‘Have I really got what it takes’, ‘I’m not sure I can do this’ ‘I’m overwhelmed and stressed and I can’t do it’!
So let me tell you something that will hopefully help you to be less judgy of yourself!
WE ALL have times where we feel like this!
Being an amazing awesome woman in business can be tough at times. Those pesky self doubts and inner judge Judy can get in the way! Your inbuilt health and safety officer sometimes forgets to take a break and when things get scary it feels like it has to protect you. This is why you might take a step forward in your business and then retreat back to the comfortable and the familiar. The unfamiliar can feel way too uncomfortable and your health and safety officer shouts STOP!!!!!
BUT, Remember this….. YOU ARE courageous, strong, determined and capable. A wobble is just a wobble. Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down. You are a beautiful wobbly weeble. 😊
So health and safety officer in your head. CALM THE HEACK DOWM! Chill out in there – it’s ok no one is going to die! (your health and safety officer sighs in relief) BREATHE!
So you see self belief comes with DOING the thing that you are scared of and building your CONFIDENCE.
There are going to be bumps in the road, mistakes, fluffed words and cringe worthy moments. Oh yes I have had loads of those! 🙋♀️🤣😩
AND you won’t die. You may eye roll at yourself a few times and pull a cringe face but that’s about it.
Here are a few ways that you can harness self belief and build the business of your dreams 🌟
🌟 Remind yourself that everyone feels like you do. We are all in this together and even those people who look like they have it altogether DON’T! BE KIND to yourself ALWAYS. You are doing something that most people will only ever dream about and you are taking courageous action to follow your dreams. A business takes time to build. Take one step at a time and keep focussing on your vision and your dreams.
🌟 Focus on how far you have come, how you have grown and celebrate your wins and how you have handled your challenges. Give yourself kind and helpful feedback when something hasn’t gone the way you wanted it to. What will you do different next time? What did you learn from it? How can you improve? You are AMAZING!
🌟 Ask for help. Practice in front of someone who cares for you and cheers you on. Ask them to read your stuff and give you feedback. Find your tribe of women who have got your back and inspire you
🌟 Self belief is about believing that you CAN achieve your goals and dreams and that you are capable of doing what is necessary to achieve it. I bet you can remember a time when you achieved something that you didn’t think you would right? Hold that in your mind, picture it and make it big, bright and bold. Remember how you felt and get that feeling again. Hold on to that! You’ve got this.
Keep remembering how awesome you are. Go gently on yourself. 😊
Sending you a huge hug 🤗
