Are you confident in yourself? The areas in life that you are confident in, it had to be learned. Everyone starts off shy and timid, with time you learn how to empower yourself and it shows as confidence. There are some people that can put up a front that shows as confidence, but you can see right through that.
Build your confidence to build your business.
When dealing with food (cooking), I'm as confident as you can be. But when it comes to putting myself out there, SHARING MY STORY (see YOUR STORY), I'm very apprehensive. I've been challenged to do a Facebook Live. I'm finding every excuse not to do it. I will get it done, but it will take me some time.
With practice and patience you can empower yourself and become more confident.
Use self-affirmations to get over your fears and to make positive changes in your life. Create your own affirmation and repeat it to yourself (out loud and in your head) until it starts to sink in and you start believing it.
Start to own your good qualities and show them off with pride, let it show in your attitude. This can be a self-affirmation, "I like that I'm driven and want to help people better themselves." Write down the qualities you have that are good, you can ask your partner or close friends for help. They know your good qualities. DO NOT ASK THEM ABOUT YOUR BAD QUALITIES. You want to highlight the good parts of you.
Acknowledge that you or no one out there is perfect.
You are the best imperfect YOU that YOU CAN BE.
If you always drive for perfection, you will always be finding things that you can improve on (I do this a lot with cooking). When you always strive for perfection to feel good about yourself, you will always be waiting for that feeling of self gratification, this will be working backwards on your path to self empowerment. Start to appreciate you for who you are.
Take responsibility for your thoughts.
It is your CHOICE to listen to the criticism about others have about you and how it can affect you. If you accept criticism from others, it will show in your behavior and attitude.
Use positive self-affirmations to get over criticisms from others. You have the POWER.
