💥Lack of confidence in yourself or what you have to offer!💥
Eeee, this is a big one, right? A lot of times we just don’t know if what we have to offer is any good, if people will want it, or if WE are good enough/qualified enough/able enough for people to take us seriously, to help our clients get the results we’re talking about, etc.
This is a HUGE topic but it’s so so so important that you know that if you’re feeling this way, you CAN train your brain to believe and think differently.
People say to me all the time, “I could never do what you do! Just get on video and talk, LIVE?!?! Hold a webinar?!?! Go on a podcast or on TV? No way!!!”
I used to say the same thing, and now I LOVE IT!!! I LUURRRRRRRRVE IT! And you can tell I do, right?
But 2 years ago, that was not the case. I thought if I was going to get on livestream or a webinar, I had to be very calm and straightforward because that is what I thought would make people think I was professional. Then one day I came across a 7-figure coach who was acting goofy and crazy on her livestreams, and I adored it. And I thought--THAT’s the real me. That’s who I’ve always been (but only let the people who knew me really well see). My best friends knew that I was a lot of fun, but for a while, they were the only ones I let see that side of me.
So what changed?
I re-owned my voice. I rediscovered who I really was. And I started by just experimenting with showing that side of me to more than just the inner “Circle of Trust.”
The result? Women started saying things like, “I love your energy!,” and then becoming high-paying, ideal clients left and right BECAUSE of the way I was showing up as my real, authentic, genuine, WEIRD, self! Plus, on my end, it energized me rather than draining me, and built my confidence even more. It was (and is) sweet as, miss! And taught me a super-valuable lesson about allowing myself to learn and grow along the way.
If you were to go back and watch some of my early Periscopes, you’d see a huge difference in the way I showed up then versus how I show up now. But THAT’S OK! I still got clients at the beginning of my business because I was consistent. You’re allowed to learn along the way, and you will evolve.
But it STARTS with looking at why you’re holding yourself back and doing WHATEVER YOU NEED TO DO to build that confidence in yourself, because it is a learnable skill. How do you build it? By taking action. By doing something new. You can use my Know Your Niche Challenge & the Confidence Resume that’s part of it if you want.
Does this ring true for you? Does a lack of confidence show up for you? Do you feel a lack of confidence in yourself, in what you have to offer, or both? Or have you overcome this and now feel like you’re on the other side of it? What helped you?
