Do you ever have those moments where you doubt yourself within your business? You worry that you aren’t good enough. Fears creep in and tell you that no one will buy what you’re offering. And ultimately, you shy away from promoting the amazing things you’ve created because you’re worried about criticism or failure.
Yeah, we’ve pretty much all been there at some point. Each and every one of us has dealt with limiting beliefs, doubts, and fears. The difference is those who are able to overcome the negativity and move forward anyway.
Part of overcoming that has to do with finding confidence in your business. Because when you feel confident about the work you’re doing, you can easily put yourself out there. And achieve the results you want.
How to Have Confidence in Your Business
The first step is to figure out why you’re lacking confidence in your business. What has you feeling down or insecure about your work? It could be an internal or external problem standing in the way.
Internal problems are like the ones mentioned above. Limiting beliefs that say you aren’t good enough. Doubts that you’ll succeed. Or the fear of failing so you feel like you just shouldn’t bother. Those are the things I want to focus on in this post.
If you have any internal issues causing you to lack confidence in your business, these tips will help.
Keep Your Mind on Your Goals
Having a mission and a purpose is a sure-fire way to stay motivated and boost confidence. That’s why you want to keep your short-terms and long-term goals in mind as you work on your business. Knowing what you’re working toward will push you to keep going even when times get tough.
Ditch the Negative Self-Talk
How often do you catch yourself speaking negatively about your own abilities? Do you tell yourself that you’ll never be good enough? Do you feel like you’ll never have the skills, knowledge, or experience to go after what you want?
Whatever negative things you’ve been telling yourself, it’s time to consciously shut it down. If you want to develop confidence in your business, you need to stop talking down to yourself. And you can no longer let those limiting beliefs hold you back.
My task for you is to grab your journal. Write down every limiting belief that comes up and tells you that you can’t have what you want. Then, counter that with a reason why you can have that very thing.
For example: You want to make $10k per month in your business. Your limiting belief says you aren’t a good enough coach to make that much money. So, you fight back saying that you are good enough. Why? Because you’ve completed a coaching certification that gave you tons of new skills. And you’ve guided clients to experience amazing transformations in the past.
Focus on the Positives
These days, it’s easy to scroll through social media and see what everyone else is accomplishing. It often leaves us questioning our own abilities and why we haven’t experienced the same success.
But instead of worrying so much about them, focus on you. Whenever you start falling into the comparison trap or those limiting beliefs pop up, think about what makes you special. What do you really shine at? What makes you unique compared to all the others doing the same work as you?
Developing confidence in your business starts with trusting your abilities. Even if you’re not where you want to be just yet, know that you have the skills to get there. Which leads to the next point…
Never Stop Learning
No matter how much you think you know… No matter how good you feel you are at something… There’s always room to grow. There’s always more to learn and opportunities for improvement. Find ways to invest in yourself and your business to strengthen your knowledge and skills.
Work with a coach. Take an online course. Read a book or listen to a podcast. When you invest and prioritize yourself, your confidence is sure to skyrocket.
