Successful entrepreneurial women commit wholeheartedly to their mission, vision, and purpose.
They never, ever give up.
For them the pain of living a life of regrets would be harder to endure than chasing after their dream and failing.
Learn to accept failure
The road to success is paved with potholes and setbacks.
At times you’re going to feel frustrated, overwhelmed, exhausted.
You’d better steel yourself for rejection, criticism, and failure.
Failure is delay, not defeat.
It’s a temporary detour, not a dead end.
Your failure does not define you.
Your response does.
Sometimes setbacks are opportunities in disguise.
They are your best teachers!
Don’t make speed the name of the game.
Don’t become so focused on the finish line that you fail to find joy in the journey.
Tame your inner critic
You know that nagging voice inside your head that acts as judge and executioner when doubt creeps in?
If you let her, she will cloud your judgement, create limiting beliefs and try to throw you off course.
All top performers hear mental chatter but what separates them from the rest is their ability to deal with it.
Become mindful of her existence.
Give the bitch a name and tell her who’s in charge before she starts wailing like a banshee.
Stop judging yourself for having fear – it’s normal!
Successful women know the importance of taking calculated risks, but they are not fearless.
They look at their fear through rational eyes.
They’ve trained themselves to take action in spite of their fear.
Don’t let your fear get in the way of your dreams.
Instead use your fear to propel yourself forward, to help you step outside what is familiar, cosy and comfortable.
Outside your comfort zone is where the magic happens.
Start by taking baby steps.
You’ll find the more steps you take, the smaller your feeling of fear will become.
