4 Reminders For Trusting Yourself in Your Business

One of the biggest reasons you started your own business was to take control of your life. When you work for another company, your schedule, your focus, your skill set, all of it is tied to the decisions of other people. And hey, if the 9-5 job thing can work for you, go for it!

For us, working for someone else just didn’t cut it. We knew we had gifts to give to the world and big ideas to chase down, which is why it’s always good to circle back to the best tool we have in our biz-arsenal: OURSELVES!

You are the sum of many things


Reminder #1 for Trusting Yourself: Define Your Own Success

We cannot stress this tip enough: Don’t measure YOUR success against someone else’s goals or aspirations.

Your intuition is your best compass; trust it to guide you in the direction that aligns with your values and desires. Trust it to choose how much is enough, what things you should spend your time doing, and how to work productively that best suits your situation.

Remember that success can take many forms, from the pursuit of material wealth to seeking peace and relaxation. Only YOU know what will truly make YOU happy!

Don't judge yourself based on someone else


Reminder #2: Your Time, Your Choices

You have the ultimate authority over how you spend your time. While various strategies and tactics exist for business growth, only you can determine what truly matters to you.

Consider your priorities and values when deciding how to allocate your precious time. If you don’t want to be on social media, don’t! Just know, there are tradeoffs when not doing something or using a certain business strategy/tactic.

At the end of the day, your business is a living and breathing (kind of) entity, it will require a time investment but you get to choose where you spend that time!

Spend your time the way you want to spend it


Reminder #3: You Make the Rules

Reiterating what we said above about working for yourself and not a 9-5 job, when you own your own business you make 99.9% of the rules. This is empowering and gives you a ton of flexibility and freedom.

You didn’t start your own business to be bound by all the trappings of a standard corporate job. If you don’t want pointless meetings on your calendar? Don’t have them! If you don’t like getting on the phone at all? Don’t do it! Whatever rules you want to break and yours to break with YOUR business.

Embrace your uniqueness and authenticity; don’t be afraid to be yourself. If conventional wisdom doesn’t align with your vision, forge your path based on your values and style.

Make your own business rules


Reminder #4: Personal Growth Fuels Business Growth

Investing in your personal growth directly impacts your business success. You should always spend time improving skills, evolving beliefs, investing in your mindset, and building your habits.

Personal growth empowers you to adapt and thrive in the business world. If you are getting better by 1% every day as a person, your business will follow suit, no doubt!

Personal growth is business growth



Trusting Yourself Wrap-Up!

While advice and guidance are valuable, always remember that YOU are the ultimate authority in your business. Trust your instincts, set your own definitions of success, and choose how you spend your time wisely.

By embracing your inner compass and investing in yourself, you’ll steer your business toward a path that aligns perfectly with YOUR vision and values.
