The secret weapon that distinguishes those who succeed from those who fail is none other than self-confidence.
Confidence is an inside job! The surprising news for most new business owners is that self-confidence is something you actually can improve yourself.
Try New Things, Often.
Since self confidence is built on success, you will stagnate if you do not continuously put yourself forth to experience new things and challenge yourself in uncharted territory.
By doing so you will find that self-confidence builds in areas you never thought possible.
Of course, trying new things also comes with the possibility of failure. In fact failure and mistakes are unavoidable. You will likely hit some bumps in the road along the way. You may not be good at new things at first, but it’s imperative that you embrace learning – and gift yourself the discovery of ‘learning as a beginner’. Set your inner critic aside and embrace the newness as a toddler learning to walk.
Most adults try to avoid failure at all costs. As an entrepreneur it’s very important for you to embrace this perspective and get comfortable with the possibility of opportunity vs. failure!

Your Sanity Assignment
Go ahead and put yourself out there in new ways. Set an attainable goal that you’d love to achieve for yourself this year, and then ask yourself these important questions:
- Where am I on the path toward achieving this result?
- What is stopping me now?
- Where do I stop myself?
By assessing your own barriers and self-limitations, you will gain great insights into what is in your way.
Set goals that are focused on your key business results and work to build and strengthen your network. By doing so, you’ll gain confidence each time you confront and overcome each limitation! Celebrate each success, no matter how small to keep your great energy moving forward!
You CAN do it… Invest MORE in the possibility and opportunity than in the judgement of failing, and see what shows up!
