When people see my “overnight success story” (which by the way, took over 2 years), they always ask me what happened?
What was the shift I made? What was the one thing I did? Or the one thing that happened in order for me to go from struggling, confused and broke, to turning it all around and going completely in the other direction. The answer is really simple. And it’s what I contribute 80% of my success to:
MINDSET & CONFIDENCE.
All along, I had it in me. And I know and believe you do to. I just needed to pull it out of me. I needed to believe in myself. I needed to be surrounded by people who believed in me. I needed a coach to help me dig and shine a light on my talents and gifts.
And THIS didn’t happen over night either. I took lots of practice, lots of trial and error, lots of DOING, until I made it a daily habit. Until I made it my #newnormal.
If you’re struggling with either of these things, chances are it’s what’s contributing to you not being where you want to be in life and business. Here’s how you can ramp it up if you feel like you’re in rut.
Confidence comes from ACTION. If you are unsure of your skills as a coach, business person or whatever it is that you do to serve people- you need to build it up with action. Instead of trying to get more clients, try to get more confidence in your craft first and you will start to attract clients. Practice, offer free sessions, create no brainer offers, test it out on friends, do market research, etc. Bottom line, do whatever you have to do to gain confidence in your skills.
Mindset comes from PRACTICE. When I first started, I didn’t realize how much negative shit was clogging my creativity and my brilliance. I had no idea that I even had a money story, let alone how screwed up mine really was. I had to work through it and practice daily. I had to reverse all of the stories I had been telling myself. I had to unlearn all the BS I grew up being taught about money, life, and being a successful woman in this world. I had to switch my thoughts around what I believed I was worth and what I believed I could accomplish. This took work. I talk about all of my daily practices and what I did every day for months before I finally made this huge shift in this post.
