Do you sometimes feel like you just don’t have the bold confidence necessary to succeed in business? You have intermittent thoughts of not being good enough…not experienced enough…or not deserving of success. Believe it or not, you’re not alone. Most entrepreneurs fight these thoughts too. As a result, their confidence enters an unstoppable downward spiral. You just need to know how to build your self-worth, instead of allowing silly thoughts tear it down.
Confidence, by far, is the most influential tool in the online marketing realm. Lacking it will stagnate you. Consequently, finding and using it is the single most powerful antagonist you’ll have each time you want to expand or level up.
While traditional ‘brick and mortar’ business is thousands of years old, the online business industry is still very new. Add to that, the continuous advancements in technology and you have before you, a myriad of confidence blocks that you have to work through and face over and over.
Here are some tips for building confidence in business.
First of all, being educated in many fields today, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to seek formal education, however it is always a huge bonus. The internet is filled with resources, and regardless of how narrow your niche is, you really can find the education and resources you need online.
Take time to study and learn every single day. This is a powerful confidence builder. You may have a lot of great business ideas but you don’t have the know-how to make it happen. Educate yourself about how to market your product or service. What is your competition? How can you reach your target audience? What kinds of advertising should you do?
You may need some nuts-and-bolts education, too. For example, how do you set up an effective website? You may need some practical knowledge to help you reach your goals.
There are many ways to educate yourself in business. You can hire a business coach to help you one-on-one. You can also download eBooks, sign up with boards and forums where business-savvy people congregate. As a result, you build connections with like-minded individuals who have been where you’re at.

You really can’t boldly march forward if you don’t know what direction you’re going in. Take some time to focus on your business. What, exactly, are you doing? What do you want to do? Who is your target market? What are their needs and wants? Where can you fill a gap for them? What ads are they most responsive to? What social media outlets can they be found on most? Do you know what keywords fit your niche?
If you have diverse interests, this can be difficult – but it’s even more necessary, because diverse interests can be distracting if you don’t focus on one at a time. So once you get yourself educated about your market and what you want to do, you can launch products that attract your audience. Focus on one product at a time.
Don’t Base Your Confidence Upon Others’ Accomplishments
We all know that guru…the one who has ten books, a dozen jobs, the beautiful house, the coveted vacations, etc. If you focus on what you don’t have, all of your energy will go to proving this thought correct. Furthermore, have an ultimate vision, and begin viewing yourself as that successful guru in-the-making. This is where your energy should be 24/7…on envisioning YOUR dream life. Where your thoughts are, is where your energy goes.
Believe in Your Success
A lot of people swear by the power of positive thinking. It is said that visualizing your goals can attract the very things you need to reach your goals. Dream BIG. Know that you have everything you need to build the life you want. Feel it, taste it, smell it. Especially when you’re beginning to crumble. Just close your eyes and picture the life you want to build for a few moments. By doing this, it will draw your energy back into building your business and crushing those obstacles that are in front of you. Believing in yourself and your business is paramount.
The more you build your confidence, the more you will attract your ideal clients. Then, doors open, life flows and you obtain inner balance. In turn, this promotes momentum. As a result, you grow, and your business grows. As time passes, you will fall out of this and momentum will cease. At this time, you’ll have to dig deep again and crush those little limiting beliefs all over again so that you can level up some more.
Never Give Up!
In conclusion, develop the mental strength to never give up on yourself or your dreams. If you’ve dreamt it, you can attain it. Hang on to this. Having said that, if you’re ready to bust through your doubts and fears that drain your confidence, and set your entire business up in 3 months, then put yourself on the list for Neurogoals.
