Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

When you feel like a total failure, these 4 strategies will get you back on track

If you’re a living, breathing human being, then I’d hedge a bet that there have been times where you’ve doubted yourself and your capabilities as an entrepreneur. In fact, you’ve probably even wondered, ‘Am I even cut out for this?’

Believe me, sweet friend -- I’ve been there. One minute you're on top of the world and feeling as confident can be, and the next you’re questioning everything and feeling like a total failure.

Maybe you sent an email to your list with an incorrect link, missing a huge sales opportunity (been there!). Or maybe you saw a competitor on social media absolutely crush their launch and you start to compare yourself to them, which is never a good thing (also been there). 

As business owners, there are so many different triggers that can immediately launch us into feelings of inadequacy -- so what are we supposed to do when our self-worth feels like it’s just been trampled by a herd of elephants? 

Over the years, I’ve come up with a handful of ways to get back on track when I start to doubt myself, and I’m sharing them in this episode. You’ll hear: 

  • The strategy I use to make positive thinking a practice
  • How to refresh your mindset and restore your belief in yourself
  • The books I always come back to that remind me of my self-worth
  • Ways you can lean into your community for support

This is a great episode to listen to, regardless of where you are in your business journey. 

Happy listening!

Here’s a glance at this episode...

  • [03:27] Give equal airtime to positive thinking. Don't beat yourself up, but if you do give just as much time to positive thoughts. 
  • [05:03] Take a trip down memory lane. Take a pen and paper and write down things that you've accomplished in the last year or the last five years. This refreshes your memory and illustrates how you've stuck with something or accomplished something.
  • [06:50] Read or listen to something that's inspiring. Getting inspired every single day will get you to the place you need to be in. Keep a go to inspiration folder. 
  • [09:06] I want you to brag! It's so important to surround yourself with a community of like-minded people. Have a place where you can share your wins with people who will actually understand your level of accomplishment.
  • [11:18]  You are worth it. You are important. It's important that you get your message out into the world. On the days that you're not feeling it, try some of these methods.
