Are You Courageous Enough To Find Your Own Path To Business Success?
If you said, YES, then you need to listen up!
When you look at other bloggers, do you admire their confidence?
Do you perhaps feel intimidated by their success?
Often we don’t see other people’s mistakes. And if we do witness their missteps, we consider it part of their learning curve.
But when YOU make a mistake?
Missteps crush our confidence, sending us into the dark pit of self-doubt and embarrassment. Why do we forgive others but not ourselves? Why does our self-image crumble each time we make a tiny mistake?
“When we make a mistake in one part of our business, it doesn’t mean our whole business sucks. And making mistakes doesn’t mean you suck……says Henneke I bet , like me, you would like to have a blueprint and know exactly what you need to do and how“.
In business, we can’t know exactly who our audience will be. We can’t know exactly what they’ll like to buy and how much they’ll pay for it. To move forward in business, we have to embrace uncertainty. We have to accept a trial-and-error approach.
Do you think uncertainty is risky? Uncertainty also means unexpected opportunities. A testimonial can help write better sales copy. A blog comment can give you an idea for your next book. An email from a reader may give you an idea for your next course.
When you see running a business as an ongoing learning experience, you become open for new opportunities, and more forgiving of your mistakes.
Don’t you just wish there was a magic switch that all you need to do is FLIP THAT SWITCH and be more kinder to yourself, accept your mistakes and totally enjoy the journey.
But the truth is … changing your mindset is hard work. Learning to be kind to yourself is difficult.
A few things you need to keep in mind to help you find your courageous self:
- Realize how much energy you are wasting by getting frustrated with yourself. What would you rather do with this energy?
- Take better care of yourself. Eat well. Sleep well. Take more breaks.
- Find like-minded people to support you.
Where do you feel the most courageous?
As a small business owner, you have a huge advantage where you don’t need to appeal to everyone…….you need to find your own tribe
When you work with the people who share your attitude, work becomes more rewarding, more energizing, and more fun.
So build your business on your strengths.
But above all…….Believe in yourself. And be kind to yourself.
