This was me yesterday after spending several hours trying to record a simple video for my website.
Creating video is something I have put off for years, even having pictures of myself online makes me cringe but people can’t get a sense of who you are if you’re hiding behind your brand.
It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there, to stand for something, to speak up. But when you finally do, you realise people are actually routing for you and even if they’re not? It doesn’t matter because the only person you really need to please is yourself.
Being in business pushes you to your limits. It takes sacrifice, resilience, courage and a bucket full of confidence. When I’m struggling with that last one I like to look to those around me who are bravely going out of their comfort zone.
If you find yourself full of self doubt today, or any day, then take comfort in knowing that every single business owner struggles with something and it’s in pushing past our doubt, fear or anxiety that we discover what we’re really made of.
Our potential is far greater than any of us realise, if we can just get out of our own way.
Have fun this weekend, I have no doubt you’ve earned it x
