Now for the good news.
Self-confidence can be learned.
1) Organize Your Fears
Think about the last time you felt fear. Were you thinking about something happening at that present moment, or something that could happen in the future? It is likely the latter is true. A lack of self-confidence can lead to a storm of “what if” fear induced questions about your future.
Take control of your fears and write a top ten hit list of the things you most commonly worry about. (90% of your thoughs are exactly the same ones you had the day before, so it is likely that your top ten hit list gets a lot of plays.)
Once you do this process, you will give each fear less power, and it will increase your self-confidence.
2) Get Self-worth from Yourself, not other People
When you are an entrepreneur, you are putting yourself in a very vulnerable situation. You are in an unstable profession where you could fail easily (and people will notice).
So how do you stay self-confident during the up and down journey of entrepreneurship? Build strong self-confidence within yourself, because if you draw all of your self-worth from other people, you are setting yourself up for failure.
Thomas Edison is a great example of an entrepreneur with unshakeable confidence. The inventor of the light bulb failed numerous times before being successful and is quoted to have said: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” If Edison had listened to other people’s views about him after a few failed attempts, it’s likely he would have quit trying.
Whether you’ve wanted to start a small business for a while, or you are looking to increase the success of a business you already own, the power to increase your self-confidence is in your hands.
Always Remember, you can accomplish anything...Live Triumphant Friends!
