It is no secret that our biggest critic is ourselves. Every day we wake up and we say our prayers and then we start our daily routine of self-sabotage. We talk ourselves out of a deal. We talk ourselves out of a approaching a potential business client. We even talk ourselves out of going to the gym to ensure our bodies are in tip top shape. Why do we do this? It is different for everybody. Some do it out of fear; others do it unconsciously; but it is a learned action which means we can unlearn it if we really put our minds to it. So before you talk yourselves out of understanding why we self-criticize first we must understand that whatever we keep repeating to ourselves will manifest in our lives every day. We do not even realize that in very small ways we are sabotaging our own business.
So for example you have started your business from home and you think you have limited resources. You say to yourself, I cannot print business cards now because I do not have the money; or I cannot approach this investor at the next meeting because I do not have all the skills necessary to provide a proper service. But what would happen if you started to say positive things to yourself like, I am going to print my cards at the end of the month so I can promote my business; or I am going to speak to the investor and share with him what I already know. Having a strong belief in yourself and your idea goes a long way in your own business success. Speak your success into being. From today, take stock of all the negative things you say to yourself out of fear or uncertainty and change the conversation you have in your head.
You can do it because you said so!
