Without self-confidence, you can kiss your business dreams goodbye because you will not be able to stay the course. Doing whatever you need to do to grow that self-confidence is ESSENTIAL!
Here are 5 powerful suggestions for you.
1. TAKE ACTION DAILY
Such a simple thing and yet, people miss this all the time. You cannot tell me that you are building a business that will generate $5K each month or much more, if you are not consistently doing something to build that business. It reduces my confidence in your word and guess what, it is reducing your own confidence in yourself.
Everyday that you do not do something to grow your business is a day that you tell yourself to doubt yourself.
Faith without works is dead
I still remember Papa telling me that all I needed was mustard seed faith to build out my vision for my business and that I showed that mustard seed faith by taking some action daily towards my vision. He mentioned that if I was allowing self-doubt to win, I would not even bother doing the work.
Lots of people allow self-doubt to win but they call it all kinds of wonderful things like ‘I ran out of time’, ‘I was not inspired today’, ‘My dog got sick’, ‘My parents needed me’ and so on. If you are harbouring self-doubt, you will find excuses and they will sound reasonable. Be honest with yourself.
2. MEASURE YOUR DISTANCE FROM THE STARTING POINT, NOT THE GOAL
To build your self-confidence, you need to stop measuring yourself against this goal that you have not yet achieved. The goal post moves constantly, doesn’t it? So if you are measuring yourself against it, you will continually doubt yourself and that is not helpful. Instead, be proud of how far you have come. Measure that so that you can remind yourself regularly that you are progressing, moving forward and expanding.
3. STAY CONNECTED TO YOUR SOURCE OF POWER
You are more than just flesh, blood and bones. As a spirit-driven individual, you do know this but you live as though it is completely dependent on your human hands to produce all the goods and that eats at your confidence because your vision is way bigger than what you can accomplish just by working harder and harder.
How do you connect to your divinity? How do you remind yourself who you are? I have a journalling and prayer practice – What do you do daily?
4. HAVE A POWERFUL MORNING ROUTINE
To continue the point above, my morning routine is critical to the growth of my business and I. I spend up to 2 hours each morning (usually a lot less), speaking affirmations and decrees, keeping my body healthy, deciding how I want the day to play out, priming my mind with reading and study. And all this before I show up in the marketplace. What do you do?
This sets me up to feel very confident about who I am and what I am here to do because I took the time to remind myself.
5. DO WHATEVER YOU ARE AVOIDING
If you keep pretending that you do not know what to do next, you are unconsciously telling yourself that you do not think you are up to the task which will eat at your confidence, of course.
Be brave and stare your fears in the face. Then eat that frog as Brian Tracey says. When you do the thing you are avoiding, you feel a surge of power because you have proved to yourself again that you are capable. And a knowing that you can do whatever you need to do to succeed will fill you with self-trust and therefore confidence on your ability to pull off anything you decide to.
