Can I make a confession?
Once upon a time, I envisioned building a company to be thrilling, exciting, and fulfilling.
While it is all of those things, it also comes with a darker side that few talk about.
- Sometimes I battle with doubt.
- Sometimes (oftentimes) I feel unqualified to do what I do.
- Sometimes I wonder who am I to make a difference.
Have you ever felt the same? Well Buttercup, you are not alone.
In those times where my inner critique tries to get the best of me, I lean into techniques I have learned over the years that keep me grounded and moving forward.
One of my favorite techniques to use is affirmations. *I know, it sounds a little woo, but stick with me.*
I have found that a good affirmation keeps me from spiraling into the pit of despair and I’d like to share a few of my favorites with you for those days when you feel unqualified in the hopes that they might help you, too.
You Deserve To Be Here
As a daughter of an immigrant and a first generation business owner, I have often stepped into rooms where I didn’t seem to belong.
Whether that room is physical, like an auditorium full of an awaiting audience, or your stage is more metaphorical, I want to reiterate that you deserve to be here.
>>Your journey has led you here and qualified you to step into that room and up on to the stage.<<
You Were Chosen For A Reason
I’m a firm believer that there is a purpose to our existence. And you, sweet soul, have a reason for doing what you do.
You were chosen and selected to live this life and fulfil your purpose. Lean into that calling and you will never regret it.
You Have A Job To Do
Sometimes, when the going gets tough, the tough just have to get going.
Rolling up your sleeves and doing the dang thing is sometimes just the cure. Your action leads to clarity and that clarity will lead to confidence over time.
This Is The Abundance That You Asked For
I reserve this phrase especially for when I am feeling overwhelmed.
>>I remind myself that the struggles of today were the blessing I prayed for yesterday and the stepping stone to tomorrow.<<
If you find yourself struggling with feeling down or unqualified for the life you live, I’d love to send you my free Mindset Makeover Workbook that will help you set things straight.
