Goodbye Limiting Beliefs, Hello Success Mindset!
Would you ever say this to a friend? "You don’t have anything interesting to share" or "No one will want to buy from you" or even worse, "You’ll never succeed, so don’t even waste your time trying".
Now unless you’re Regina George, I’m hoping you would never!
But I do bet you would say or have already said these lies to yourself.
I know I have... Too many times, I've been guilty of believing my own negative thoughts and postponing my dreams.
Even after watching every free tutorial or webinar, I could find online I would still feel like something was missing. I thought if I just knew the right tactic or strategy, THEN I would be ready and good enough.
I later came to learn, the problem wasn’t what I didn’t know...
The problem was in my mindset blocks.
If you can relate then this one is for you.
First, realize that you are not alone and these common negative beliefs and mindset blocks can be overcome! You were meant for big things and you are ready now.
Belief #1: I Need to be an Expert Before I Can Begin
Have you been feeling like you don't know enough to take your business to the next level? I want you to know, it's completely okay to not have all the answers before you begin.
Your best clients are always 1 step behind you. For example, someone with 100 followers would probably be overwhelmed working with an Instagram coach with 1 million followers and could probably learn more from someone with 1,000 or 10,000 followers. This client and coach would be better able to relate to each other as it wasn’t long ago that you were in their position.
One of the best qualities to have as an entrepreneur is the ability to make connections with people whose strengths are your weaknesses. Your ability to be resourceful and find the answers along the way.
I know for me, I always learn more by actually doing, rather than thinking/planning.
You are on to something if your heart is focused on your clients and customers, you are committed to personal growth and transformation, and care less about knowing EVERYTHING along the way.
Think of all of the things that come so naturally to you now, that were once very challenging. Examples could be driving, cooking (I’m still not great at this actually), or even your current job! Remember, what you find challenging now, you will soon master.
I am a creation of the Divine mind; all is perfect, and I am a genius in my own right
I trust in and am always connected to my divine intelligence
I am wise AF
Belief #2: I'm not Interesting or Unique Enough
Most of us think we're pretty ordinary. We think there isn't anything special that sets us apart from anyone else. If that's you, then it's likely you have completely overlooked the one strength that only you have. The person you are and the experience you provide are exactly what makes you unique.
We all have a unique voice and a different way of doing things. Think about the millions of brands out there that offer the same products or services and yet have completely different customers. It's because each brand has its own voice and unique way of resonating with its customers.
Did Rihanna think there are too many make-up brands before creating Fenty, hell to the no!
It’s the differences, and you being your authentic self that is going to make people connect with you more. Use who you are as your strength, what makes you unique is your superpower.
Create a daily practice that inspires and energizes you.
My best ideas come when I am able to be myself while reading books in my field, listening to interesting podcasts, and practicing the techniques I teach my clients.
Divine inspiration surrounds me.
I am filled with infinite, creative energy.
I’m ready to share my authentic expression.
Belief #3: I'm not as Good as (Insert Name of Person you Compare Yourself to)
Does seeing other entrepreneurs' success make you feel like you don't know enough, or you're not expert enough? Do you worry you're too far behind and you'll never catch up?
It's easy to fall victim to the comparison game. There are lots of success stories on Social Media of people who went from 0 to 10k in 1 month. Although these stories are inspiring they can also be derailing. Especially when you don't see the same results.
But there's one thing all these stories have in common. They only highlight their success, their wins, their A-ha moments. No one is posting about their struggles or roadblocks they had along the way, or how long it took them to get to that amazing month of 0 to 10k.
No two journeys are the same and no one's success looks the same as anyone else.
So stop paying attention to what everyone else is doing and focus on your big why and who you're serving. Stay laser-focused on this.
Focus on your own mission. What is your WHY? Why are you building this business? Why do you want to help this type of client?

I am aware of my gift to the world and share it freely
I make a difference by showing up every day and doing my best
I am compassionate with others and myself
Belief #4 : No one will want to buy from me
Another mental block that keeps entrepreneurs from being successful is the fear of rejection. You're afraid that no one will actually want to pay for what you have to offer. And if all you do is focus on the sale, you're right. Because the fear of rejection will only get worse and cripple your confidence.
So instead, don't worry about making a sale in the beginning. Focus on providing value to your consumer. Sure price is a factor, but we don't click that buy button without knowing we're getting value for our money. If you offer a genuine resolution to their problem or need, the sales will come.
Think of 5 topics for blogs or videos you could create that would provide value to your ideal clients and place you as an authority figure in your industry.
Stuck on ideas? Ask your audience! Create polls and questions on Instagram to see what your audience wants to know or learn more about from you.
People, f*cking love to pay me
I am here on earth to share an important message
I am attracting all the people, circumstances, and events I need to succeed
I have all the tools I need to achieve my goals
