Your mind plays tricks on you.

It tells you all kinds of lies…

  • Your new idea won’t work.
  • You’re not good enough.
  • They won’t listen to you.
  • The economy is too bad.
  • It’s not the right time.
  • It won’t work this time.
  • Sure, it worked for them, but it’s not going to work for you.

I’ve heard that ‘inner critic’ more times than I want to count.

It tells you to play it safe. Don’t take chances.

But at some point, you have to tell your stupid head to shut up…and move forward anyway.

What if I never maxed out my credit card to buy my first PC while working as a delivery driver at Little Caesars in 1996? It was my launch into an online career.

Taking that step was terrifying. Who was I to think I could create an online business, especially after failing at direct sales, network marketing, and pretty much every job?

What if I never started experimenting with email…or wasn’t willing to start a membership site…or refused to get up on stage?

My head threw everything and the kitchen sink at me during each of those breakthroughs.

I’m can’t ‘solve’ this problem for you in an email, but I can provide you with 3 quick tips to help you build confidence to move forward.

Confidence Booster #1: Review Your Testimonials

Remind yourself of those you’ve helped.

How have you influenced others and made their lives better?

If you’ve been in business for a while, you should have a collection of testimonials you can sit down and read through again.

If you’re new to business, think back to those times in your life where someone said “Thank you” and told you how you helped them.

In fact, get a journal and write down those times. No matter who you are, there will be times you face doubt…and you can remind yourself of why you do what you do.

Confidence Booster #2: Find Your Genius

You’re a genius. But you may not realize it because your ‘system of success’ is different from others.

Go back over some of your greatest accomplishments in your life.

What was your process leading up to those successes? You’ll see clues and connections.

For example, personally I collect resources and information on the topic from multiple sources. I process all this information of what worked for others. Then I hone in on the critical leverage points to adapt a simple system I can follow personally. Then I’ll take small, measured steps to practice and test that solution.

That’s me. That may be the exact opposite of what works for you.

What has led you to your greatest successes in life?

Confidence Booster #3: 10-Year Vision

What is your long-term vision for your business and your life?

I’m not talking just the next year or even the next 3 years.

What about 10 years from now or 25 years from now?

We could even make it 100 years. That would force you to look beyond yourself at the legacy you leave to others. What will you create that lasts? Who will you influence into future generations?

The world is going to change more than we can imagine, but how would your motivations and your mindset change when you look much further into the future than just the next few years?

There’s a special report inside the Monthly Mentor Club called “Freedom in the Entrepreneur Zone.”

It shows beginners how to overcome the biggest barriers to implementation.

And it helps experienced entrepreneurs get past the overwhelm.

Are you struggling with fear of failure?

Or perhaps you’re bored and burned out?

Perhaps you don’t know which direction to go now?

It covers all that and more…you’ll find it inside the “Report Library” of the Monthly Mentor Club.

Slay the giants that are stalking you in your mind…and move forward in your business.

Earn More, Work Less, Enjoy Life…and make a difference while doing it!
