Today I want to talk to you about your confidence. Maybe your confidence is waning. Maybe you’re feeling like you’re not achieving the way you should be. Your company’s not where you’d like it to be. You’ve had a dry spell. You’ve been stuck. You can’t figure it out. And so, I just want to give you a couple of things to help bolster your confidence and ask you to take on this challenge and to see if this will help make a difference for you.
The first thing that I would say to you is if you’re feeling like your confidence is waning, go ahead and look at your commitment level towards your goals, towards where you’re going to take your company and then re-up them significantly. For example, if you’ve committed to increasing revenue 10 percent this year, we’ve got three months left, recommit but recommit to increasing it 15 percent. Make this commitment with emotion and conviction, as well as making it known to some other people. Have some accountability.
One of the things we do with our coaching clients that they say helps them tremendously is we hold them accountable to the goals, dreams, hopes and aspirations that they have for their business and for themselves. So I would say revisit your commitment to to your goal, and if you don’t feel conviction and a passion about it, then you need to re-up that commitment.
Then the second step is after you’ve made this renewed commitment, I would like you take that step of courage. What that means is take a massive step of action towards this new commitment that you have. Think of something that would make a massive significance towards achieving that new commitment and making it a reality. And then do it!
After you do that, watch how quickly you come up with new capabilities in yourself, your team, the resources that you’re going to need in order to meet that commitment and to enhance that courage. You’ll have these capabilities that you didn’t realize you had that have been dormant for awhile — they will come back up and you’ll be able to say, “I can do this!” You start believing and at that point what you’ve just received is a whole new shot, a whole new boost of confidence.
What we need as business owners and CEOs is we need our confidence high all the time, and then, believe it or not, the first step is to make a commitment and then take a step of courage and then you’ll discover some new capabilities; then out of that you’ll have a new level of confidence to take you to the next step.
