Are You Selling Yourself Short?

You know, we’re all guilty of selling ourselves short every now and then by not fully BELIEVING in the heights that it’s possible for us to reach with our business. You might have a bad day and it could throw you off your game… you might have such a bad month that it makes you want to throw in the towel altogether!

The thing is, when you run your own business, you can’t afford to stay down for long. If you work alone and you don’t REALLY believe that you can achieve the ‘bigger picture’ that you’re working towards, then you’re in trouble.

And if you have a team that look to you for motivation and direction and you don’t REALLY believe that you’re building a super successful business… you’re also in trouble because your lack of belief will rub off on your team and you’ll start to see a decline in service and the value you provide your customers with. Lack of belief is catching you see and its effects can be devastating.

The good news is that a positive attitude is also catching and I wanted to share this video with you today because I think it’s a great way to illustrate the fact that sometimes, when you feel like you’ve taken things as far as you can, and you’ve got nothing left… when you’re ready to give up and admit defeat… if you can dig deep… you’ll realise that you’ve got a bit further to go… and if you can find the inner strength to go that little bit further, not only will you have achieved something amazing for yourself (changing your level of self-belief) but you’ll also inspire other people to do the same.

As you’ve heard me say before, things will always go wrong in life but it’s how you deal with things that will be the making or breaking of you!

So, what will YOUR next few steps forward be?
