Waiting to Feel Confident Is Holding You Back

February 21, 2022

Waiting until you feel confident is holding you back from creating the business you really want. 

What We Think Creates Confidence

As a new coach you think that in order to feel confident you have to have enough experience and results. You’re doing all the things but deep down you’re doubting yourself and your ability to create the coaching business you’re dreaming of.  You secretly think you have to have enough followers, enough clients, enough experience, and enough money to feel like you’re a real coach that’s seen as a leader in the industry. You think when you have enough of all of these, then you’ll feel confident enough to fully believe that you’re capable of creating your dream business and life.

Waiting to Feel Confident Is Holding You Back

As you wait for your confidence to show up you’re self coaching yourself, consuming everyone else’s content, grabbing every freebie available, and doing everything everyone says.  You’re noticing that other people are saying some of the things that you’re thinking and wondering why you didn’t feel confident enough to say it.  You notice that you’re getting overwhelmed and confused with what you should be doing. You’re starting to question yourself more and wonder what you need to do to get more engagement and sign more clients. And you’re still not feeling confident enough to boldly show up in the way you really want to.

What Actually Creates Confidence

But here’s the secret that you’re missing. Confidence doesn’t come from your results. Confidence is created by what you think. 

Think of a Time When You Believed Before You Had Any Evidence

Consider this. When you were little, you probably had no problem thinking that you’d go to college or get married. You had zero evidence to prove that you could do those things. But you chose to believe them. You believed them before you had any evidence to prove to yourself that you could create those results in your life.  And if you truly believed that you could create that result, you did.

That’s what I’m asking you to do in your business. I’m asking you to believe in yourself before you have any evidence to prove that you can create the results you want. 

Create Your Future From Your Future

Imagine yourself as a fully booked out coach. Imagine that you’re working with your dream clients right now. You know how you created the clients you have right now. You’re confident that you could create a client today if you wanted another client. 

Grab a Notebook and Answer These Journal Questions

  • What are the thoughts you think regularly about yourself as a coach?
  • What do you believe about your coaching?
  • What do you believe about the results your clients get from your coaching?
  • What do you believe about your offer?
  • What do you believe about the people in your audience?
  • What do you believe about your current clients?
  • What do you believe about your future clients?
  • What are your beliefs about the work you put out into the world? 
  • What do you think about yourself as the CEO of your business?

From this place of true belief, notice how you feel. Then consider the actions you take. Does that feel different from taking action from trying to believe?

One Last Note!

The next time you start to slip out of belief, pay attention to your thoughts. Notice the way you feel and how you show up.  The more awareness you have around this, the more intentional you can be next time and the more you’ll be able to create the results you really want.
