- I'm too fat to be a successful speaker!
- I'm too ugly to be a successful speaker!
- I don't have the kind of clothes I see other successful speakers wear!
- I don't have any credentials!
- Why would they want to learn from me?
- Why would they hire me when there are so many people out there who know a lot more than me?
These are just a few of the thoughts that can hold us back from stepping up and making a difference. Your "head" and the thoughts you allow to roam around without permission, is the only thing holding you back. Really.
One of the things I've learned in all my years is that working to remove specific, self-defeating thoughts from our head doesn't work. What DOES work is replacing those thoughts with new ones! Replace:
- I'm too fat to be a successful speaker TO "People relate to speakers of all sizes! Look at the hope I'm giving to those who aren't a size 0!"
- I'm too ugly to be a successful speaker! TO "People are attracted to my energy and enthusiasm!"
- I don't have the kind of clothes I see other successful speakers wear! TO "I look good!"
- I don't have any credentials! TO "All of these experiences have given me so much to share!"
- Why would they want to learn from me? TO "They are going to LOVE my stories!"
- Why would they hire me when there are so many people out there who know a lot more than me? TO "My style and energy keep people engaged and interested!"
Just because a thought pops into your head doesn't mean it's true! YOU get to decide. YOU can reprogram your thoughts and brain. YOU can take control.
YOU have someone special to offer that is unique to YOU. Are you ready to get started?
