I was reading a copy of Entrepreneur Magazine recently and saw where it was reported that a lack of confidence and a fear of failure are two of the biggest factors holding women back from starting their own businesses.
When given a chance to start or expand a business, women were consistently more afraid to take the step than men in the same position. It made me think about you. Are you having the same insecurities? We have come a long way as women, but some of these old mindsets can really trip us up.
It seems those old enemies of fear and self-doubt are still up to their dirty tricks. They continue to rob us of countless opportunities, wealth and blessings! You may be holding yourself back from a God-given opportunity based on fear or lack of confidence in yourself. If you are, I want you to start doing three things consistently.
The first thing is to challenge your fear. Don’t just accept it. Take it apart and examine it. See where it’s coming from. There’s probably not much there. Fear is just a big bully that will run when you stand up to it.
The second thing is to talk it out with a trusted friend or advisor. Someone who is supportive of you but who will also tell you the truth. We all need a little encouragement from time to time to get going.
And the third is to take even a small step toward something you’re afraid of trying. Have you ever heard the saying, “Do something afraid?” That’s you this week! That could be the push you need in order to break through.
Listen, I have been through all these stages and this is why I have been passionate about serving women as a mentor and coach over the past 20 plus years.
I want to help you to confidently step up to your full potential!
