Tip 1

Self- Awareness and Self -Reflection: Note when these feelings come up to the surface. Find out more:  What stage your business is in and the emotions that you may be feeling in that specific stage - CLICK HERE 

Journaling is an amazing tool to get this out of your head onto paper.

What activity was it around? Who else is involved in the issue, is it just you or someone else? What brings these feeling on? Tap into your emotions along with your thoughts.

Tip 2

 Reframe the issue

Now that it is on paper, how can you remove the frame and put a positive spin on it. Reframing is a powerful tool, and it will completely change your perspective.

 E.g. I was attending a networking function and could not find a car park nearby, eventually I found one however it was quite a distance for me to walk.

Reframing the situation allowed me to look at it as at least I got some exercise in which I had been avoiding, instead of feeling anxious and frustrated about being late.

Tip 3

Talk about your feelings without holding back:

Find someone who you trust. Put yourself in a safe environment to remove all the masks that you wear and to talk from your heart.

Allow yourself to acknowledge the feelings and set up your support person to simply listen and not try to fix you. You are not broken.

Tip 4

Consider the Context:

For example, if you are not feeling confident about dong ………., then ask yourself where you feel confident in a different area. Remember if you are confident in other areas, it simply is because this is new to you.

Think of that confidence you have had previously, and reflect how it felt when you had overcome the barriers before you gained achievement in that area? Find supportive evidence to prove to you that you are a confident person.

Tip 5

Reframe mistakes and failure

ou will make mistakes along the way, that is how we learn.

There will be times that you do not achieve the outcome immediately. Reframe Failure to “Simply Not Yet ……

“Everyone makes mistakes this is part of learning and growing

Tip 6

Be kind to yourself

Celebrate your wins and give yourself the grace of kindness. Treat yourself as though you were speaking to a child, who looks up at you with tears in her eyes, and you comfort her, letting her know that it will be okay.

Treat yourself with kindness,  and simply learn from your mistakes and move on quickly with courage and passion.

We change all the time, and having the ability to adapt to change is your greatest asset.

Take a minute to really think about the way you approach your work and your interests. Do you really believe you can grow? Or are you stuck in a fixed mentality?

Our businesses like our lives, are always changing, evolving, and growing. And we need to keep up with them if we do not want to be left behind.
