You’re probably thinking…. What the hey? But let me ask you, Do you ever wonder: Am I good enough? Or, have you allowed stress and anxiety to get in the way of reaching your goals?
As a fellow female entrepreneur, I can tell you that I used to allow self-defeating thoughts like those creep in. And honestly, it was like I was standing in my own way, like I was physically wearing a “ROAD CLOSED” sign! This week, I’ve been talking with several creative women entrepreneurs who said they feel the same way. Self-doubt is a deal killer!
When self doubt brings out that “road closed ahead” sign know that you have the power to take control! Which is why I want to share my STOP method to help you get immediately back on the path to success.
First, when you have self defeating thoughts, literally tell yourself to STOP! and use the acronym to take action immediately:
- Self Care – Self care is not me first, it’s ME TOO! Embrace your imperfect perfect self. If you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of anything else.
- Time out – Take a break, grab a cup of coffee, write a positive affirmation and repeat it to yourself. Over and Over if necessary.
- Opt-out of social media.- I don’t mean cancel your accounts, I mean give yourself permission step away for a period of time (maybe an hour, a day, a weekend?) Social Media can fuel self defeating thoughts.
- Persist & Prayer – Everyone has hurdles, pray for strength, push through and persist. Done is better than perfect. #win
Sometimes those thoughts do creep in, but we don’t have to give them free rent. Evict them immediately with the STOP Method.
Did you know I started a new Facebook community dedicated to helping fellow women entrepreneurs with business tips, positive affirmations and just a great place to be for support? I’d love to have you as a member of the POWER OF ME community. 👈
Drop me an email and let me know how this simple method works for you!
Cheers to all of your success! – Linda
