Can you relate? You’re working on your business, you are calm cool and confident and the next it’s like “wtf am I doing?????”…..
Perhaps you have given advice in a group and it totally falls on deaf ears (tumbleweeds) or you’re working on a project and suddenly you get a little voice in your head telling you to give up…..
Hello confidence killer!
I can tell you one thing for sure – it’s ALL that little voice in your head – no matter what others say (or don’t) it’s that little nagging voice that is trying to save you from getting hurt. Better give up right – WRONG!
“And no one will listen to us until we listen to ourselves.”
― Marianne Williamson
This little voice (well I say little sometimes it can feel like Mr Noisy shouting from the top of a mountain), can affect us in so many different ways.
It stops us from being the best we can be and takes our feminine power.
It can push us to do s**t that is out of alignment with our business and life – Like we totally start fighting against that little voice trying to warn us that we are off track.
I got well and truly caught in the latter over the past few weeks and the funny thing (well it’s funny now) is that I didn’t even see it!
By creating the 6 week online De-stress for Success online video course I wasn’t being true to myself – I started working 14 hour days and got absolutely nowhere. The voice in my head was warning me that I was out of alignment with my business and I pushed so hard against it I totally lost all confidence in myself.
The deeper I got into the course writing process the more I started to feel distant and very lonely and I doubted everything about myself.
After what felt like bashing my head against a brick wall for days (yes I do specialise in stress reduction), I swallowed my pride and cancelled the course. It took a lot of courage and I lost a lot of money but I just needed to stay true to myself and work with my clients 1:1….
I spent the weekend having a compete digital detox (maybe a little wound licking) and came back with a fresh perspective and complete confidence in myself and my business
Lesson * It’s ok to admit that something isn’t your thing * It’s ok to admit that by working so hard I forgot about my well-being *It’s ok to be human!
Rather than getting stuck in the thoughts about not being good enough, I slowed down and remembered WHY I was in my business. I chose confidence and totally embraced MORE self-care at the same time. Where I could have easily gone with they “Lynz you are a useless twat” voice.
“It’s funny. No matter how hard you try, you can’t close your heart forever. And the minute you open it up, you never know what’s going to come in. But when it does, you just have to go for it! Because if you don’t, there’s not point in being here.”
― Kirstie Alley
Just because I side stepped and took time out to work on my confidence my business didn’t crack or crumble, in fact when I came out from behind the online course model people began to contact me asking for support – THATS ALIGNMENT BABY!
If your so stuck in your thoughts about not being good enough – take a break – turn off the computer – spend some time looking within – reach out to people that know what it’s like to be in business and move on!
So many of my clients are stuck in the fear of not being good enough, but with practice they begin to see its just the mind telling stories – some sort of crazy damage limitation.
It’s when we don’t see know the true nature of the mind, we don’t know that the mind is just limiting our awesomeness and that is just plain damage!
Repeat after me:
It’s ok to be me
I am in the right place at the right time
I listen to my body for guidance
I am safe
I am good enough
Thoughts are just thoughts – I choose to let them go
My confidence grows through baby steps
Here is this weeks confidence meditation – Enjoy
