3 Steps To Conquer Your Doubts & Grow Your Business
Do you need to conquer your fears and doubts to get to the next level in your business?
As entrepreneurs, we face new challenges on a daily basis. Alongside impact and entrepreneurial freedom, it’s what attracts many of us to what we do. It’s thrilling when we put ourselves out there, add our special za-zing, and win the day.
With experience, we develop an interesting kind of mental agility and resilience. Change becomes more comfortable than staying the same.
Yet every once in a while we all get stuck. Especially when the actions to get to the next level require us to walk directly into our fears and doubts.
Trying new things (especially if we envision a potential botch job or ridicule), is risky, and can feel confusing. No-one enjoys failure, feeling foolish or looking green.
As I look back on four decades of owning businesses and guiding other visionaries to take confident, decisive action- common patterns emerge.
The biggest obstacle I see entrepreneurs face to conquer their doubts and the fear and procrastination that slows business growth is clearing away all the subconscious behaviors that travel with it.
These include burying themselves in trivial tasks, shiny object syndrome, and all the other common distractions. See: How To Liberate Yourself From Fear & Procrastination
I formulated my SMART Entrepreneurs Empowerment System for exactly this reason. It gets you centered and connected fast, to master your inner game, stand tall and build a profitable business you truly love.
What To Do When Your Doubt Demon Comes Calling
First, acknowledge that it’s normal to experience doubt, fear and procrastination. Just as an uncomfortable oyster will produce a luminous pearl, overcoming obstacles will beautify you, strengthen your resolve and build momentum.
Bigger problems arise when you avoid discomfort. The doubt demon slips in and takes control when you bury yourself in menial tasks and allow your energy to be drained by the demands of others. You know… those things you do that feel productive, but you’re really doing to avoid the vulnerability of making mistakes, looking stupid or feeling confused.
Left unchecked, the doubt demon will steal your momentum, lower your confidence, and stall your business.
Taking Decisive Action
While you do need to put a foundation in place to achieve next level success, it’s a mistake to wait for the skills and confidence to move forward. The way to develop skills and confidence is to take decisive action and examine the results…
Courage is the key. With courage and decisive action skills get developed and confidence builds.
When you want to grow to the next level, treat everything as a test that you refine as you go.. Thus the popular mantra; “act fast to fail fast”. The strategy here is to test everything before sinking too much time and energy into it.
Measure the results, and evaluate your next steps.
It’s how you’ll get through the inevitable mistakes and awkward stages as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Confidence is built through two ways:
Practice and experience. That’s why most experts want you to jump in the deep end and just get started, armed with the awareness you will make mistakes.
By strengthening your physical body. When you are physically fit, you have more confidence to take risks and try new things, right?
Courage, clarity, and focus, are the equipment you need to take decisive action.
Over time, as you get results, you’ll be more comfortable taking the next leap… and so on.
