I remember once having a confidence crisis… I’m not entirely sure what happened, but I just remember feeling like I didn’t know what the best decisions to make were anymore. It had a huge impact on me, because I didn’t have the confidence to put my ideas out there, to decide what the best price to charge was or to make big decisions.
I was always looking for someone else to tell me what the best thing was and I was always running ideas and decisions past other people – not for feedback (which is fine), but because in my heart I didn’t have the confidence in myself to just do it. I stopped trusting myself.
Disaster in business!!
I know that I’m not alone in this experience – I think lots of us in business, especially those of us who work by ourselves, can end up having a confidence crisis, where we stop trusting ourselves to make the best decisions and to move forward and we then find ourselves in a perpetual state of “I don’t know what to do, so I’ll do nothing”.
Confidence plays such a huge role in building a successful business – having the confidence to charge what you’re worth, having the confidence to test your ideas out, having the confidence to put yourself out there – it’s a big deal and without confidence, it’s hard to do these things.
If you ever feel like this then you have to watch this week’s episode with Alexandra Watson – she shares two powerful steps to take to get the confidence to move forward.
