Others will sense if you believe in yourself. Have you ever been talking to someone that you first met and they fumbled while they talked and provided no direct eye contact and seemed nervous? I think we all have had that conversation at some point in our business career. That confidence or lack of is what will either persuade a potential new client to believe in you and your service or your product.
Not being able to believe in yourself will work against you and actually hinder your abilities. Lack of self-confidence can be a wedge between you and the successful, profitable business that you’re striving to create.
How do you overcome?
It is very simple, you need to find creative ways to boost your self confidence. It won’t happen overnight and it won’t happen without working at it. Remember, if you take baby steps forward eventually you will be running your way to success.
1. When you wake up in the morning look in the mirror and introduce yourself to your self. Take a look at what others see and if you don’t like what you see change it until you are happy with your simple introduction.
