Knowing You Can

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I recently came across a quote that says, “Don’t think you can, know you can,” and it really hit home with my coaching business. Every day I work with small business owners who worry they will fail not only themselves, but the employees, family and friends who depend on them. However, this couldn’t be farther from the truth – the reality is that the passion and confidence is already inside you or else you would not have embarked on the journey of becoming a business owner in the first place.

Having confidence (and a lot of it!) is half the battle. Knowing – not just thinking – that you have the ability to learn new skills and develop the management expertise it takes to make your business successful goes a long way. In addition, having the help of an experienced business coach can help develop this confidence by leaps and bounds.

So why is confidence so important? Because without it, you set yourself up for failure before even stepping up to the starting line. The definition is confidence is “the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust.” If you don’t have trust in yourself, you will lack the ability to make decisions and will constantly second guess your choices. While being a business owner is about building a successful empire, it also doesn’t mean you are never allowed to make a mistake. Having confidence does not mean you will never make a misstep. However, it does mean that you act with self-assurance, learn from your errors and avoid making the same mistakes the second time around.

Confidence is also a trait that shines through and builds respect among the team working for you. If you believe in yourself and are a leader who teaches by example, you will have employees who want to work harder for you. If you shrink into your shell and don’t know you can, your team is likely to take advantage and walk all over you.

Building confidence isn’t easy, but it’s crucial to being a successful business owner. There are many ways to build confidence and the answer is different for everyone. A recent article from tiny buddha, 8 Ways to Be More Confident: Live the Life of Your Dreams, has some great tips. In addition, with the help of a business coach like me, you can build endless confidence and start on the road to success. Book a free one-hour consultation today.
