“I don’t know enough to call myself an expert”
“I look terrible on video”
“I’m not a good writer”
“No one cares about what I have to say”
“I have nothing new to add to the conversation”
“I don’t deserve [insert whatever it is that you want]”
“I’ve already tried this”
“Nothing about me is unique”
“I need to work really hard in order to be successful”
“It’s not perfect, so it’s probably not any good”
“I’m no good at selling”
“No one will like me if I just be myself”
Any of these sound familiar?
I know I have said these very things at different times over my entrepreneurial journey. Some of them I have told myself over and over again…ouch.
Why do we tell our selves these types of lies?
Why do self-sabotage ourselves from the very things that we really want?
Oh we may say it’s all around fear, but I believe it’s about something else.
We don’t really believe we are worthy of what we want.
Note I said, worthy of, and not deserving of…there’s a difference.
The word “deserve” indicates that there are qualifiers attached.
“I worked hard, so I deserve that money”
“I’ve been eating clean this week, so I deserve that dessert”
“I’ve hard a hard week, so I deserve that glass of wine”
There’s nothing wrong with being deserving…nothing at all.
But when it comes to owning who you are, doing work you love to do, and having success on your terms…
you don’t deserve it…you are worthy of it.
We tell ourselves that we deserve it…and yet rarely give ourselves permission to believe that we are worthy.
The lies we tell ourselves can keep us stuck and filled with regret.
And the more we listen to these lies, the longer it takes for your Right People to find and connect with you.
When you take the time to build your Personal Brand Foundation, you see how truly worthy you are of wanting what you want and creating success by how you define it…not some cookie-cutter, standard definition.
So…will you keep believing the lies you’re telling yourself or will you start believing the truths that are inside of you?
