After I paid off my debt, I was on such a high. I thought if I could pay off that much debt in under 3 years, there wasn’t anything I couldn’t do.

And not only that, I’d built a business from nothing but my own grit, I’d taught myself to design websites, and I had learned from some of the very best internet marketers.

My business was doing great. I was doing great. And then some random person said something to me that left me shook.

I honestly can’t even remember what they said, because I have a bizarre skill of forgetting unpleasant events – but I do know that it took me years for my confidence to recover from it.

During that low spot, I got the idea for what I’m finally doing now. But I refused to do it, or even ponder doing it because I felt that I wasn’t qualified. And I felt that no one would want to hear what I have to say. I convinced myself I wasn’t ready.

There is a 10% chance that I wasn’t ready yet…but mostly it was a lack of confidence that held me back.

So, what did I do to get my confidence back?

I got out and traveled. There are few things that can boost your confidence better than successfully navigating a country that speaks a foreign language.

I put everything I had into my work. When you take really good care of your clients, and deliver more than they expected, your confidence will grow.

I prayed. A whole hell of a lot. I talked to God about the way I was feeling and came to the understanding that even though I was a general screw-up, pretty much everyone else is too. That doesn’t mean I am not a unique creature who brings her own flavor of awesomeness to the party.

I surrounded myself with people who gave it to me straight. These are NOT “yes” people – these are people who clap for me when I succeed, tell me when I’m getting off track, and kick my ass when I mess up (lovingly, of course).

And I learned everything I possibly could about me and my personality quirks, so I could get the most out of myself, while still supporting the stuff I struggle with.

If confidence is something you struggle with, I am running a 3 day Challenge beginning Monday, July 27.

I will give you actionable homework to help you get your mojo back, and get rolling on all the big things that God is calling you to do.
