Most people could use a boost in self-confidence. A report by Infusionsoft and Emergent Research
found that 94 percent of small business owners surveyed identify very specific goals for their business. Yet, only 65 percent are confident that they will achieve them. That's a significant gap. Are founders lacking confidence?
As an entrepreneur, your self-belief is one of your strongest features. Long before anyone else will believe in your idea, you must believe in it. Worse even, your self-belief will be tested daily. Are you really strong enough to make it as an entrepreneur? You will ask yourself this question often, at least every time you face a challenge that you need to overcome - you'll need to learn new skills almost daily and deal with failure and fall-backs. It's tough. Entrepreneurs can get discouraged when they don't know how to do something, thinking that this is proof that they don't have what it takes. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of work.
If you want to be a successful founder, you need to embrace failure and have an unshakeable belief in your ability to succeed, no matter what life throws at you. It's all about getting up again when you fall.
While confidence can be stronger or weaker depending on the circumstances, in order to achieve business success, you need to constantly work on your confidence. A coach can help you with this. She can actively boost your confidence and ensure you create the space you need to develop your own self-belief. Even the toughest ones of us know, getting a confidence boost can make a great impact on how we approach work, our energy levels, and potential success.
Coaches are skilled in helping you visualize what's possible for you to achieve. They can support you to leave your comfort zone and help you deal with failure.
