How To Get Rid Of Self-Doubt

Your mindset may be one of the reasons you’re not getting your desired results from your business.

It’s not just about the latest fancy digital marketing and social media strategies or the operations of your business or finances. All of those are helpful tools, and they are there to support you. 

But when all is said and done; you have to believe in yourself. 

Once you get your mindset right, then the other tools are much easier to implement, but if you don’t, you’ll find that you struggle with every step. You’ll keep second-guessing every decision you make. So you absolutely need to get rid of self-doubt to get into the right headspace so you can easily grow your business. 

Everything depends on how you view yourself

The right mindset translates into your business strategies and therefore your overall success. How you operate your business as you move toward your goals is directly related to how you view yourself. 

Think about it: do you find yourself jumping into new strategies easily, or do you always have a voice in your head saying it might not be right for you, or that you don’t have the skills, tools or funds to implement these new ideas? 

That’s your self-doubt talking, and it’s only goal is to make you feel like you’re not worthy. 

I started my business about seven years ago and I used to doubt myself A LOT!

I used to think that I wasn’t good enough to do this business. I thought to myself, “There’s a lot of people out there who are doing a much better job than me, who are more qualified than I am!”

You can see how this kind of thinking puts an incredibly negative spin on you mentally.

A lot of this negative thinking is due to your battle with perfectionism and being afraid of what other people say about you. 

But you’ll soon notice that what you’re thinking others might think about you are really just the negative thoughts YOU think about yourself! 

Once you’ve realize that, you’re well on your way to getting rid of self-doubt. 

Appreciate your gifts

Find a method or outlet that allows you to grow within your personal headspace. Remember, it’s in your mind, so you need to fix it in your mind. 

This may be meditation or journaling, or spending a few minutes with yourself, acknowledging the thoughts that come to the forefront, but also challenging them. 

For example, when negative thoughts arise, contradict them with an appreciation of the abilities and gifts you do have. 

Practice responding to, “I’m not good enough.” with “But I’m good at picking things up. I’ll learn anything quickly.”

It  is SO critical to make the time to do this in this very, very busy world. 

So many of us are juggling our families, our kids as well as running our businesses and catering to our clients. So often we forget that it’s so crucial NOT to forget ourselves. 

Pick a time to spend at least 5-10 minutes with yourself everyday! Appreciate yourself! Practice silencing the self-doubt and soon it will be made permanently quiet.

Own Your Career: Break Free from the Desk in 5 Days

  • Business
  • Digital Courses
  • Entrepreneur

Having a business and having freedom instead of being tied to your clients seems contradictory. But it’s possible, and it should be one of your goals. New opportunities are making easier than ever too.

 This freedom isn’t just applicable to entrepreneurs or business owners, but it’s relevant to anybody who has a job. Especially if you don’t like your job.

When I first started my business, and long before I started, I wanted the freedom to be a digital nomad. Not tied to a nine to five job; never shackled to an office. I really disliked those things when I had a corporate job. 

I wanted to find a way, an opportunity, a path for me to have all of those things. To travel. To be the boss. And to not have a boss.

Being your own boss 

I’ve always dreamed of having a business of my own so that I could manage myself. Where I get to be my own boss and not stuck in an office or nine to five. To not have to come in all the time. 

Before I started my business, those were top of mind for me. As my business grows now, they remain a main focus.

I’m sure you’ve had thoughts like that as well, either for your corporate job or even your business. If you have a corporate gig, I’m sure you’ve thought about having the freedom not to have to go to work at a specific time, to spend more time with your kids, maybe travel. 

If you’re running a business, you might find that you are tied to your clients. You don’t feel in charge even if you’re the boss. 

Don’t give in, because you do have freedom there.  However, you’re going to need to break the mindset of being tied to your clients, of trading time for dollars. 

Time for dollars isn’t sustainable 

 The time-for-dollars mindset was another thing I wanted to change in my business, right from the beginning. When I started my business, I had clients and my services meant my time was always tied to them. It wasn’t sustainable. It wasn’t scalable. 

After all, there’s only one of me, and there’s only a finite number of hours every day. So my earnings were limited to myself and my time, every single day. I needed something better, and hard work (plus some great advice) helped me find it. 

A smarter way to bring in revenue

Here’s the opportunity I found, a smarter way for you to bring in revenue into your business without having to trade time for dollars. 

You can have that freedom and flexibility you wanted. Travel. See the kids. Enjoy your friends. You won’t always be working on your business, but your business is always working for you.

That solution for me, for my business, was digital courses. 

If you’ve ever thought about creating a digital course for your business, and you’re still on the fence, let me assure you that it is really the next step to scale your business. 

With a digital course (or similar information product), you have a way to take your expertise and push it out to many people all at once. You’re no longer earning by working one-on-one with clients. 

You’ll earn more. You’ll scale faster. It’s exciting stuff. Are you ready?

How Do You Scale Your Business?

Are you an expert in your field? Do you have authority in a specific topic?

Are you still trading time for dollars in your business? That’s working hard, and my hat’s off to you. But there’s a way to work smart instead – to bring in revenue into your business without having to constantly be trading time for dollars. 

It’s not a scalable business to be constantly trading time for dollars. You only have a limited amount of time every day and you are always just using your time to serve your clients.

Revenue while you’re sleeping

What if you could bring revenue into your business while you’re sleeping? 

Or working ON your business instead of IN your business? 

Revenue without the daily limits of your time. Revenue that’s scalable. 

You can do that. You can have that through Digital Courses. 

That’s why digital courses are so critical if you want to scale your business. 

The power of social media 

How do you get your course out there and engage with your audiences?

By promoting your course on social media. 

Currently, there are over 2 billion users on Facebook worldwide. 

You can see how advantageous and critical social media is because all your audiences are hanging out there.

Join Me!

I hope that you can join me next week in the 5 Day Social Media Blitz Challenge to Promote Your Course! 

You don’t have to have your course created. Even if you don’t have a course yet, you can still participate in the social media blitz challenge. 

Each of the 5 days,we’re going to put out a piece of content that promotes your digital course out there and it gets out to your audiences and then your audience can engage with you and know that your digital course is coming. 

The 5 Day Social Media Blitz Challenge to Promote Your Course starts on Monday, September 30th

Go to: http://5DayChallenge.Online 

Having a scalable business, and being able to create and launch courses anywhere in the world that you want. Being a digital nomad, not being tied to an office, not having a nine to five job, or having to work for “the man”. 

That’s a scalable business.
