​​As a business owner, I’ve struggled with imposter syndrome more times than I can count. It’s a feeling of inadequacy that creeps in and makes you question whether you really belong where you are. And as a result, I often found myself putting my needs and priorities to the back of the line. But over time, I’ve come to realize that this approach never made me feel any better. In fact, it only made me feel worse.

So, here’s what I’ve learned:

1. Putting yourself last doesn’t make you feel better.

When you put yourself at the back of the line, you’re not doing yourself any favors. It’s essential to fill up your own bucket first, because when you’re happy and fulfilled, the positive energy you absorb from the experience will overflow to those around you. Taking care of your own needs isn’t selfish; it’s necessary for your overall well-being and success.

2. Taking risks is essential for success.

No one has ever achieved success by playing it safe. Those who invest in themselves and take risks are the ones who make the biggest moves. While it may feel uncomfortable to step outside of your comfort zone, doing so is necessary to stretch yourself and grow as a business owner. When you take risks, you’re more likely to take action and make sales, which ultimately leads to greater success.

3. Doing the thing makes you stronger.

Whether it’s starting a new project, taking on a new client, or launching a new product, doing the thing is essential for growth. It’s easy to get stuck in analysis paralysis, but the truth is that you have to take action to create confidence and move forward. Thinking about it or saying “next time” won’t cut it. You have to do it to become better and stronger.

In conclusion, as a business owner, it’s essential to prioritize your needs and take risks to achieve success. Doing the thing is what will ultimately make you stronger and more confident in yourself and your business. So don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and take action – you’ve got this!
