The most important communication you will ever have is the communication you have with yourself. Mental chatter dictates your mood, demeanor and daily progress. Is your self-talk serving you well in your business or is it time to change the recording?
As women, we tend to be hard on ourselves. Are you ready to give yourself a break? I’ve discovered that when I pay attention and “catch myself” thinking or speaking negatively, things can change. Unrelenting condemnation will keep your business mired in mediocrity.
Publicity is one area of business that makes many women feel uncomfortable. Self-promotion and self-confidence are needed to position yourself as a trusted authority in your field. You can lower the volume on the harsh internal soundtrack by using positive affirmations.
