I am sure you are dying to know what this one thing is that you can do to make money. Although it is free to do, it doesn't come easy for most.
The one thing that will drive your sales and make you money even outside of business is confidence! There are no two ways around it. You have to be confident in who you are and who you can serve. You have to have the confidence to know what you are good, and what you suck at. You can't be afraid to put yourself out there. The fear alone leaves tons of money on the table. You can't get paid for something no one knows that you do!
Let's get into 3 ways to get the confidence that's free to give, but hard to come by:
LEADING WITH YOUR PASSION
The best way to not worry about confidence, is to not worry about it. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it is true. Instead of worrying about how you come off to people worry about the value you bring people. You have a story and voice to share with the world. That is what will connect you with those around you it. It will also be what gives you confidence. If you are are working in your zone and your space it easy to be yourself and let your confidence naturally shine through. If you are the best at working on Ford's from the 1970's naturally in the conversation or teaching you will shine. That's your thing, and that's what lights you up. Make sure you are operating in that space. The confidence will follow.
SEPARATING FEAR FROM KNOWLEDGE
Don't let the fear of putting yourself out there, talk you into to believing you don't have something to teach or share. The voices in our head can be so strong at times, that it even makes us believe we are crazy or stupid for dreaming so big. It makes us feel like we couldn't possible do anything to change the world, how ludicrous a thought. What is actually ludicrous is that voice inside your head is what is stopping the world from changing. That crazy idea may just be the very thing we all need, and you are preventing us all from changing because you won't.
DON'T LET LACK KEEP YOU BACK
A lot of times we can try to use excuses to hold us back. We don't have enough money, we don't have enough time, I don't know where to start. The list goes on. You can keep saying all those things or you can eliminate the excuses. For instance starting a business and a website, there are things you may not know how to do. That can kill your confidence about stepping out and being bold. But always keep in mind what you don't know you can learn and what you don't know doesn't outweigh what you do know. If you are starting a business on line don't be intimidated by bigger brands or personalities. You have your own unique presence you just need to learn how to master that. You need have the confidence about your gifts, and not investing time and energy into to someone else's gifts by being jealous or envious. That will get you no where or your confidence for that matter. Give energy towards your gifts and nurturing those to grow.
