I am just one of many voices discussing the importance of understanding what confidence is. However, I haven’t heard many people talking about how to protect the confidence you already have. So, I started talking about that a lot, over and over again. We have gotten a very good response online and also at our local events. If you’d like to get in on this conversation, come join us over in our Facebook Group — click this updated link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/confidencestealers/
Here are a few reasons why you should learn to recognize, refuse and reject your confidence stealers.
MONEY AND QUALITY OF LIFE
Your confidence stealers are keeping you and your business broke. They are affecting your family’s quality of life. This is the very most important reason to get free and stay free from your confidence stealers. Once you deal with them, you will see your career and/or business begin to grow.
Your confidence stealers are like a little small fox robbing your hen house of eggs every night. Eventually, you won’t have any more eggs or chickens. The buck has to stop with you. Catch that fox! Then shoot to kill.
Your business/career can prosper again, if you take the time to recognize, refuse and reject your confidence stealers now. Stop ignoring things. Stop letting things slide. You and your goals are important.
The more you hold back because your confidence is being attacked, the less likely that you’ll leave a life legacy about which your family and community can be proud. Learn how to see yourself as enough. Make that choice right where you are right now.
Give yourself permission to say yes to blessed opportunities that are coming your way. Push that small voice down that keeps trying to make you doubt yourself.
Tell that small voice to just shut up.
ABOUT THE FEAR OF SPEAKING
If you have a fear of speaking, it’s time to get over that. I speak to you as one who has been there for over 20 years. I am now pushing past it — choice by choice by choice and day by day.
PROGRESS IN 2016: I was on tv in 2016 (click here to see). It took me a few reschedules (truly not my fault… had an illness and then death in the family), but I got there. I didn’t melt. I didn’t freeze up. I did ok. It was a choice I made that made my future choices easier.
PROGRESS IN 2017: I will be a keynote speaker at an event in the spring of 2017 (will announce more details soon). I almost wanted to find an excuse to get off the phone when I was invited to keynote, but… I told the small voice of self-doubt to shut up. I asked some clarifying questions, and then I said yes.
If I can do it, you can too… but doing it alone is impossible for the long term. So, come join our community and get support.
