“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward”. ― Martin Luther King Jr.
One of the biggest factors preventing us from getting the results we want is us. We tend to have all the skills to succeed, to exceed expectations and raise standards to the next level. Yet we don’t back these up and believe we’re good enough to deliver…. something I’ve experienced on many occasions.
Self belief is a key ingredient to being successful. Having the confidence and courage to keep taking action, especially when faced with challenges, requires having the belief you can and will discover options to get the outcome you want. Instilling this in both you and your teams will create an environment of success and an attitude of winning.
3 Tips to Believing you can
So do we build this self belief? Here are three tips:
You have all you need – we have all the technical skills we need to make things happen. Realising we are the ones empowered to make that call, create that opportunity, build that relationship can be done with the skills we have now
You’ve had success before and can again – once we experience the results of making a quality decision, we can demonstrate success. Winning that ideal client, helping a client fix a problem they have, hitting a target… all show that you’ve tasted success and that it’s possible again
Focus on what could go right – choosing to focus on what’s possible gives you the motivation to keep striving. Believing you can get that outcome you want, that bigger client, that promotion, hitting that stretch target…. all go towards showing you can be successful
So how much belief do you have and how much do you need? By looking at your mindset are there areas where you can implement these tips over the coming week?
If this resonates, feel empowered to share with your networks so they too can overcome their limiting beliefs. To chat about developing these skills further, send “I want to believe i can” to email@example.com so we can help you and your teams kickstart your next phase of growth.
Have an awesome week!
