Are you working every day to create a thriving business that can be run anywhere in the world but you find yourself scrolling on Instagram or lurking on Facebook?
You’re likely in a few Facebook groups and you scroll and “like” a few posts, but if you’re being honest your just hiding and basically invisible and just being a spectator?
Yup – I know this because this was MY life when I first started my online business in 2013 trying to get clients online and make money. This was my MO for months until I gained enough courage to actually “put myself out there”. I knew that I was supposed to be visible online and share some of my own thoughts and content but the truth is, I was scared.
If you could see inside of my brain, you’d see all of my worries that totally held me back. Even though I knew getting seen was a crucial step in marketing my business, I was in my head about several issues such as:
What will people think of me?
Am I good enough to get people to like me?
Am I smart enough to even help people?
What if my program really didn’t work and I couldn’t give people results?
What if people don’t like what I have to say?
Working with coaches, consultants, and course creators, I know that we all seem to go through this at least at the beginning of our businesses. The truth is, if you really want to create a financially thriving online business, then you’ll need to become visible so that you can help your soulmate clients.
Honestly, nothing has changed about people over the last several years. People are still trying to make a living online to create a freedom lifestyle and they STILL have the same struggles as they did 10 years ago.
Because we’re human and humans deal with limiting beliefs which are simply fears. If you’re wanting to live on your terms and make money doing what you love, the question becomes…
How can your clients or customers ever find you if you’re not sharing a message they can resonate with that gets them to take action, and whip out their credit card?
Here are a few tips to help you stop playing small and turn your back on those limiting fears.
1. When you’re stuck in your head wondering what people will think, take a second to remember why you wanted this business in the first place. When you take time to remember that bigger reason of WHY you wanted it, you’ll let go of the small voice in your head and hear the LOUDER voice who wants more out of life.
Come to realize that by hiding you’re never going to help anyone and you’re certainly NEVER going to live your dreams of having that lifestyle that fuels your passions. You MUST realize that there are people out there that actually need what you are selling.
Begin to embody that version yourself who IS good enough. Why not?! Those “gurus” are no smarter or more special than you, they’re probably more confident and have been working on their limiting beliefs and fears longer than you have. Comparisonitis is a practice that’s keeping you from knowing your worth so begin to recognize you’re on your unique journey and have the power to run your business YOUR WAY!
Letting go of those limiting thoughts will help you to feel free to create from your heart. Learn to let go so you can clear your mind and grow into the energy and abundance that attracts your tribe to you and REPELL the people who you don’t want to work with.
What fears are holding you back? Let’s take a look at baby steps that you step can you take this week to overcome at minimum one of those fears so that you can start putting yourself out there and attract your soul-led clients to you
Strategy is only one part and I say this all of the time, the other BIG component to success in our personal life or professionally is your mindset.
This is why you see gurus out there in your industry making it look so easy. It never was for them but they’re just further along than you are.
It’s your turn now! Get out there and be a problem solver, sell something and live a high-vibe, freedom lifestyle! You’ve got this. I believe in you!
