Belief – to believe in yourself is something we know is essential for success and yet at times most of us doubt ourselves.
Recently I wrote a post Expectations – Do You Expect to Win? where I talked about we get what we expect not necessarily what we desire.
To expect to win, to achieve your goals you also need to believe in yourself. Sounds simple doesn’t it but in our online world there are many people who doubt themselves. I know I have sure been there.
The message of belief and to believe in yourself keeps reappearing for me this week.
I shot this video on the subject and share a time when my belief was very high and yes success was quick to follow.
It took me a long time to really work out that the success we had in the business as I shared in the video was not the overnight success. The success came on the back of a lot of hard work and learning in our previous business.
How to believe in yourself when you are starting out
When we are starting a new business or totally changing careers we know there is going to be a learning curve.
To have unwavering belief can be difficult.
I have changed careers and industries several times now and here are some strategies I have used.
## Know there is a learning curve and don’t beat yourself up if you are not achieving success as soon as you would like.
## If there are other people achieving the success you desire in that business or similar business then have belief that you will get there too.
## Know you are bringing your skills from other jobs, professions, industries with you.
## Learn how to transfer your skills to the new role you are playing.
## Do not allow yourself to become overwhelmed. If you are starting a business online it is highly probable you will feel overwhelm some times. Stand back and re-prioritize what you are doing.
## Have a daily mode of operation. Know exactly what you need to do each day.
## Hire a mentor if possible. This will shorten your learning curve and keep you on track.
## Make Google your best friend. When you do not know how to do something someone will have made a blog post or shot a video about it. The internet is full of information we can use to learn.
## Invest in your education but do not get stuck in learning mode.
## If your online then find a support group. It can feel very lonely if you try to do it all alone.
Belief : Believe in Yourself
As I shared on the video we need to also have a strong belief in our products or service.
We must believe they are going to help our customers and that what we are doing in our business is making a positive difference.
Please leave me a comment below. Do you have strong belief in yourself? Do you ever doubt yourself? Do you have any tips to help others strengthen their belief?
