It’s not always going to be easy.  You’ll have dry times when there are few sales.  You might even start doubting yourself, doubting your business.  That’s exactly when you need to boost yourself. How do you do that?  Let’s find out.

Don’t Compare

Often we compare ourselves to our neighbors, to our colleagues, or even to our friends.  That’s a no-go. When we do that, we’ll often walk away unhappy with ourselves and our own details.  Instead, compare yourself with how you were yesterday. Do what it takes to make changes today so that you’ll be more successful and confident, knowing that you’ve learned from mistakes you’ve made and can do things even better.  As Rosalynn Carter once said, “You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.”

Take Good Care

Aim to stay healthy.  Avoid the usual habits that cause stress to your body – drinking, smoking, overeating.  Treat yourself to exercise and fresh air. Go to annual checkups and make sure that everything is ticking and talking right.  Get enough sleep. When you take better care of your body, it will take better care of you. Maintain your health, treat yourself well, and that in itself will boost your spirits overall. Thomas Jefferson reminds us that “…health is worth more than learning.

Do What You Dare

Too often we might be rough on ourselves.  That dark voice inside may whisper the negative – letting us know that we can’t and we won’t and we don’t.  Instead of trying to drown out that voice, use it as a challenge. Maybe you can do that.  Maybe you will do that.  Maybe you do that already.  Embrace those doubts about yourself and test them out.  Are they true? If not true, plow through them. If they are true, then see what you can do to work around them.  Lou Holtz tells us, “Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.”

When you boost yourself, your self-confidence gets a lift.  When you feel good about yourself, you’ll often be more willing to try new things, to take more risks, and to enjoy life more.  That boost can also refresh your approach to your business.
