Ever struggle with self-confidence? Ever have a moment (or several moments) of self-doubt? Ever feel like maybe you’re not cut out for sales?
We all have those thoughts from time to time, and these self-limiting beliefs have the potential to crush us if we let them. Here’s how these beliefs can sound…
- “I’m not…”
- “I can’t…”
- “I’m just…”
- “It’s too late…”
- “The company/market is…”
- “I don’t have…”
- “If only…”
Some of these beliefs are based in fear; some are formed over time; and some may appear when you least expect them.
You just have to fight back.
When you hear yourself verbalizing these things, that’s when you know something’s wrong. The truth is:
You are capable.
You are smart enough.
You are worthy.
You are passionate.
You are in control.
You are (fill in the blank).
Remember the time you closed that huge deal. Think back to the successes you’ve had in the past. Remind yourself of WHY you do what you do. And then turn those statements around…
- “I’m not…” becomes “I am…”
- “I can’t…” becomes “I can…”
- “I’m just…” becomes “I will change…”
- “It’s too late…” becomes “It’s never too late…”
- “The company/market is…” becomes “What else…”
- “I don’t have…” becomes “I’ll make it work…”
- “If only…” becomes “When I…”
It’s not always easy.
But, when you sense the urge of self-limiting believes coming on, don’t let them in. Instead, begin and end your day with positive thoughts and self-affirming beliefs.
It’ll make all the difference
