One of the best things you can arm yourself with, as a business owner or network marketing professional, is confidence.
Confidence can give you the power to succeed when you face challenges, take on new business plans and take advantage of opportunities that will help you increase your income.
The best leaders I work with are confident. They know what they want to achieve and they are confident in themselves and their team members’, ability to meet those goals. They are confident in their business, strategies and careers, and it shows.
The good news is that everyone can develop confidence.
Even if you feel like you are already a confident person, there are some things you can do to strengthen your confidence and be even more successful.
There are all kinds of tips out there for how to become more confident. From surrounding yourself with positive people to learning how to leverage your strengths, you have probably heard a lot on this topic.
But, I want to talk about a different way to become more confident with these 3 things:
Start by Establishing Your “Why”
Why are you doing what you are doing? What inspired you to start your business and what drives you to succeed? Establishing your “why” gives you a basis for your confidence. It helps you recognize why you have chosen this career and why it pays off.
Spending more time with your family, having the ability to travel, financial freedom, the ability to be your own boss or a chance to work from home are all common reasons people start a business.
Think about what drives you to succeed and then think of that as your “confidence booster.” Whenever you need to give yourself a pep talk, think about your “why” and how success in your business will make it possible for you to achieve that.
Find Your Passion Zone
In general, we’re more confident when we are in our passion zone. Being successful in business does require you to push yourself and step out of your comfort zone, but being passionate about it will make it more rewarding.
Find an area that you are passionate in and then work to make that extremely successful. That could mean finding the right product and business, joining the right team or finding the right partners for your business.
Once you’ve found that space, work at being as successful there as you can. As you start to see results and your business and income grow, your confidence will increase. You’ll see first hand that you are capable of achieving big things, which will spark more confidence you’ll need to take on bigger business decisions and opportunities.
Do What You Believe In
When I first started in my home business, the one thing I knew for sure was that I believed in the health and wellness industry. I have always been a big advocate for having a healthy mind, body and spirit, so choosing a business in that industry was perfect for me.
When I started investing in real estate income properties, I also had a strong belief in building assets in this area. Thanks to my home business income, it was the funding I used to build my portfolio that now consists of several units in Ottawa, Edmonton and Saskatchewan providing additional monthly residual income.
Doing what you believe in will give you incredible levels of confidence. Many people start their own business because it gives them a way to sell products they believe in, offer services they have a passion for and do what they love.
Use this passion to help you grow your confidence. When you are working at making the things you love into a lucrative business, your performance will be better. You will be working toward something you believe in and you will have the confidence you need to do what it will require to make your business a success.
To strengthen your confidence, you need to wake up every morning excited to make your business grow, look for new opportunities and increase your income. When you do what you believe in, that confidence will naturally grow.
Confidence is one of the most important things you can have and developing it is a matter of establishing your “why,” finding your comfort zone and doing what you believe in. As your confidence grows, so will your business.
I help people learn to be better leaders and make a passive income by starting a home-based business.
