How Self Doubt Sabotages Your Financial Success
When working online for money, there are many obstacles youíll encounter. That might include money to invest in tools or courses, technical difficulties and other things. But one thing that should never impede your progress is your own mindset.
Unfortunately, self doubt will sabotage you more often than you think. As a solo entrepreneur, thereís no one there shoring up your confidence throughout the day as a team of coworkers might in a corporate situation.
Self doubt can creep up on you in so many ways. It makes it hard for you to pick a niche. Youíll question whether or not youíre smart enough to pick a profitable one, wonder if the competition is so steep that you could never battle for a leadership position, and you might find yourself jumping ship on a niche too early just because you get spooked by something insignificant.
Self doubt can cause you to stall out when considering different business models. Youíll regret never showing the ability to follow through and realize true success. You might start off creating an info product and then feel sub-par, so you decide to promote someone elseís product instead, only to abandon that because you feel like you donít have anything worthwhile to say about it.
Recruiting joint venture partners and affiliates is almost an impossible task for you when self doubt is a heavy burden. You wonít want to approach people (especially those you consider ìbig name marketersî and ask them to promote you because you wonít feel you measure up or are worthy of their consideration.
You wonít have enough confidence to price your products for what theyíre worth when you have self doubt weighing you down. Youíll want to give everything away for free, and youíll find it hard to charge even a small amount, much less level up to the next tier of success.
One motto that you may have to adopt throughout your online journey is to, ìDo it afraid ñ courage will come later.î Remember that everyone who has come before you in this business felt nervous and unworthy from time to time.
Yet the forged ahead and now are seeing the rewards of their efforts. It takes a good deal of bravery or willingness to put yourself out there, regardless of whether or not you might falter.
But for those who do battle their own fears, the payoff is proof that you have it in you to accomplish anything without any boundaries hindering you from that first step forward. All it takes is a little ingenuity and the ability to push through your fears.
