One of the most limiting statements we can make in life is this one…
“I’m just not… [fill in the blank] enough.”
I recently attended a marketing conference where Tony Robbins was the keynote speaker. He said a lot of things. But one thing he said really stuck out to me. He said, “Business success depends 20% on skill and 80% on the psychology of the owner.”
This is sooooo true!
You might find it odd that I would call attention to this quote, when the whole concept of my In Demand Skills Training Course is centered around learning SKILLS. And then I go and tell you that’s only 20% of your success?!?!
That’s because I can teach you all the skills you need to be successful. I can walk you through, step-by-step, how to build a website, how to do keyword research, how to set up social media channels, position and market a business, create backlinks, and on and on. In fact, there is SO MUCH that I want to teach you guys!
There’s a whole world of things you can do with the skills I want to teach you. But I know that I can’t make you believe in yourself. I can’t make you go out and get what you’re worth. I can show you. Teach you. Tell you. Urge you. Encourage you. But I can’t make you believe you are enough. Only you can do that. Only you can shut the door on the negative voice in your head that plants self-doubt and tells you you’re not … [whatever] enough.
I’m not in your head. If I was I would totally shut that stupid voice up. (Creepy thought, huh? So maybe it’s a good thing I’m not.) I can’t do it for you, but I can tell you the secret that shuts that voice down every time. Here it is:
That’s it. Because if you’re moving forward, you’re making progress. And if you’re making progress, you are ENOUGH for this moment. You are whatever enough at this moment and you’ll be even MORE soon. You’re learning, you’re progressing, you’re growing, you’re pushing forward… so you are ENOUGH for right now. And as long as you know more about what you’re trying to do than the person you’re trying to do it for… your skills are valuable!
Isn’t that awesome?!
So YOU. ARE. ENOUGH!
You are also the only one in charge of what you will allow to go through your mind.
BUT, even though you are the only one who can do it, you are NOT ALONE!!! That’s why I didn’t just record the lessons and leave it at that. I created the In-Demand Skills FB group as a place where you can get help and encouragement from others who are on the same path. I do weekly Q&A sessions in that group to help keep you on the right track and give you answers to your questions. I include software, hardware, outsourcing recommendations and templates to keep you going.
I want you to be successful! And I know that’s going to depend on more than just the skills I teach you. It will depend on your mindset. Your belief in yourself and your abilities. Your willingness to cross the imaginary line between knowing and doing. Because it’s not enough to just know. You have to believe you can DO.
Do you believe?
