For a change a shift to happen you need two things:
1- Confidence in your ability to act and choose
When we struggle, it's ether because we lake the confidence it requires to take the needed steps to move upward. Or we may have the confidence to act and choose but we don't know how to do it.
When I went into personal branding, I had the confidence I needed in what I wanted to do but lacked a road map that would help me and my work show up and work for something I believed in. When I uncovered my personal brand and the road map on how I wanted to communicate I suddenly had the ability to create!
At different stages in life we may need different things. We may even go back and forth between these two needs. Sometimes needing more confidence and sometimes needing more information and tools. With a new role we may have enough information on how to do the task but the lake of confidence in our ability might be holding us back. Or it could be that we feel confident in ourselves but information is what we really lack.
If there is a change or a shift you're looking for, the first step is to understand what your confidence looks like and what tools and information you need to create the shift. Once you know where you are at, you can understand what you need.
Here are some questions to help you through the process:
• What change or shift are you trying to make?
• Do you have the confidence in yourself-or maybe something bigger then yourself-to make it happen?
• Do you have the right resources and the tools to guide your steps?
