Although your self confidence may make you feel better about who you are did you ever wonder how it impacts your business success online? Being truly confident also means you’ve become familiar with what your personal strengths and weaknesses are and how to use this knowledge to your advantage! Although a successful entrepreneur must offer something of relevance and value, it is more about their willingness to invest of themselves and their time, to do what it takes, to reach their goals! Without having confidence in yourself or the business you’re building, every effort you invest will be much harder while results you get will likely fall short of your (hopeful) expectations!
Here are 5 HUGE advantages and reasons why confidence is definitely something you’ll need to succeed as a small business owner!
Anything that requires some type of sacrifice or an investment of any sorts, be it time, effort, or money also needs YOUR commitment to get ‘it’ done! Achieving most anything of significance is actually a process and this process needs for you to be totally committed to doing what it takes, within reason, to achieve your ultimate objective! Are you confident enough to commit yourself totally to your business success on the internet? Hope so!
The road to your own personal version of ‘utopia’ will likely be littered with obstacles that will confuse and/or frustrate you! When referring to your business success online you will be facing competition, in many cases, from all around the globe so you must be resilient enough to respond to every ‘minor’ setback you encounter! The more you feel capable of succeeding in what you’re doing, the stronger your resiliency will be towards setbacks which, by the way, you can count on encountering!
Developing a stable foundation for confidence includes accessing your personal strengths and weaknesses so you can focus on what you do best! At this point you can now concentrate on what YOU can do with your unique abilities or strengths to make your business or efforts successful! Knowing you can succeed at what you’re trying to accomplish and EVEN how to do so further embeds the need to focus on how to use what you have learned!
Change of Plans – No Problem
Even when your ‘initial’ idea or thinking may appear to be flawed, your level of confidence in both yourself and your abilities compels you to move forward! Realigning or even recreating your ideas or thinking will NOT fluster you! Of course this is because you know you’ll succeed and are onto something people may want or need! It may be nothing more than a simple tweak but this alteration from your original intentions or plans will NOT faze you! The bottom line is you want to deliver your fundamental ideas to the people because you know they will love it so changing the ‘packaging’ does not throw you off course!
Ridicule – Bring It On
The internet is like an open face sandwich where nothing can hide! This is also an environment made for people to communicate and voice their opinions so your hide, or your ego, must be tough or strong! In other words, will you freak out when people badmouth your efforts and ‘great’ ideas or will you take it as constructive criticism, make the necessary adjustments and move on? Garnishing great ideas from intense criticism is an invaluable trait you’ll need to succeed when working online!

This gives you the confidence to take on and stick with challenges you may not have considered otherwise! Although there are many factors that influence how successful you become, being confident of what you do and your own abilities is what you need to succeed, at almost anything!
