Sometimes we don’t step out in business, or in life for that matter, because we don’t feel confident enough to do so. But the ironic part is that if you never take action, you’ll never build confidence. You can add training and credentials and even endorsements, which can all serve to boost your confidence, but until you take action, you won’t actually know whether you can succeed or not. Until then, everything is speculation.
So what step can you take that will not only build your confidence, but move you closer to your goal(s)? Start with something simple and if you’re really not sure, do something you know you’ll succeed in. It’s amazing how much even a small step can build your confidence level to a place where you’re willing to take an even bigger step the next time around. That doesn’t mean you won’t get stuck again, but by taking small steps one at a time, you’ll get that goal eventually, which is a lot better than never because you stayed in your comfort zone. You might even find that first step wasn’t nearly as hard as it seemed 🙂
