As an entrepreneur there’s been a big obstacle I’ve had to grapple with – as a brand, as a business owner, and as a woman, and I bet it’s one you’ve had to deal with, as well.
Confidence. I think confidence is so crucial to your success as an entrepreneur that you will continue to hear me talk about it quite a bit and I love getting other people’s perspectives on confidence.
That’s why I was thrilled when at a recent Marianne Williamson lecture I was at, someone in the audience asked this question:
“Where do I find the confidence to pursue big dreams and become successful?”
Marianne said the key to being really confident is realizing one simple thing, and this answer surprised me.
Are you ready? For the answer, please watch my video, below:
As Marianne puts it, “The key to confidence and success is realizing that you are not a big deal.” (Click to tweet!)
There’s a calling within you that senses what you do is tied to something much bigger than yourself. Still, I know it’s easy to get caught up in trying to become a “big deal.”
Let your confidence stem from what you create – don’t let it hinge on the way other people respond to or perceive you. There is massive freedom in that, if you’ll just give yourself a chance to lean into it.
Focus on YOU. Create amazing things that stem from your soul. And you’ll see that the confidence you’re looking for may just find its way to you, without you having to search very far for it.
Now it’s your turn: What does being truly confident mean to you, and what do you admire about other people who you perceive as confident? Please let us know in a comment below.
