Clear the Fear! Removing Self Doubt is Easier Said Than Done

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 LinkedIn 0 0 Flares ×

It's amazing to me what most people really think about themselves. It's not good! Most people think very small and have a negative view of themselves and what they can accomplish. Believe me, I understand. I constantly second guess myself and question if I am really worth the money my clients are paying me or if I am good enough, smart enough, strong enough, etc to work with some of the top consultants and people in my field. This is a pretty natural instinct for most and one of the biggest hinderances I see that are holding most back from achieving real success. 

The conclusion I have come to over the past few years is that I am worth every penny of what I charge my clients and really I should charge even more. I would much rather believe this and tell myself this everyday vs the alternative. I continue to dream big and put into action new ideas and approach my business from a more entrepreneurial angle than the "I have to get all of this stuff done myself" mentality. I will get to where I want to go and choose to think more positive about my future and how big I can grow my company. Why think any other way? 

Negative Thoughts? Take Out the Mental Eraser

Negative thoughts are going to creep into your consciousness and tell you that you can't do something or shouldn't do something or aren't experienced enough to do something. Well, I am here to tell you that you need to take out that mental eraser and wipe those negative thoughts away. The #1 reason most people don't take action on great advice or breakthroughs in their life is that they talk themselves right out of it. Or the people around them talk them out of it. Self doubt and negative talk comes from a super low energy place and will make you feel awful. So why do it at all? The next time you are faced with a decision or want to try something that might improve your situation, find a way to push through and do it vs talking yourself out of it.

Randy Paush said it best, you have to "be a a Tigger, not an Eeyore." And what he meant by this is that Tigger, from the Winnie and the Pooh children's book, had a ton of energy and overly optimistic view on his life and the world around him. Eeyore did not. If you have a second, watch this video from Randy Paush. Your problems won't seem as big and it might give you some inspiration to push on through some of the issues you are dealing with in your business.

Dream Big When It Comes to Your Remodeling Business

You have to dream big when it comes to your business and your life. I don't care what business you are in you have to want more out of yourself and your business each day. This doesn't mean that you constantly have to be driving yourself into the ground to push your business to new heights, but dreaming big opens up new opportunities for you vs thinking small. And the longer you think small the harder it gets to change your state of mind so start right now and list the top 5 things you ultimately could envision for your business.

Whether you believe in the power of positive thinking and manifesting or not, you know that at least you feel better when you see your life in a positive way. So stop the self doubt and start looking at everything you are doing from a more energetic place just like Tigger. 

What do you want from your business?

Is it more freedom?
How are you going to get more freedom and time off from your business and make more money?

Is it more money? 
What strategies can you put in place in the next 30-60 days that can generate more revenue? 

Is it opening up more offices? Or getting a nice showroom setup? 
What steps can you take today that could make this happen?

Is it hiring more people to take critical tasks off your plate? 
What person do you need right now to make your business run smoother? 
What is stopping you from going and finding this person?

Whatever your big vision is stop and write it down right now. Post it on a wall near your desk and review this everyday. Dream big and don't lose sight of what you really want out of this business. Running a remodeling business is extremely hard but it will get easier if you continue to work on the business vs working in the business. And if you take a more entrepreneurial approach to everything you are doing your business will open up and things will get easier. Stop being the technician and start being the entrepreneur you always dreamed you could be.
