Are you emerging from the last year feeling less confident than you were in 2019?
Maybe you feel uncertain or have made a big change to what you are doing or how you do it.
You know that showing up with confidence and clear direction is critical to success, but you don’t feel all that confident or clear. Instead, you feel like you’re wading through quicksand in a snowstorm!
You are not alone
There are a lot of agency owners who feel like you do. Moreover, if you go back and talk to folks who grew a big successful agency, those folks you look up to, they’d tell you about long stretches of their journey where the business went sideways and questioned themselves!
Always be starting
One way to gain confidence and clarity is to start each day with a fresh outlook.
The prospects you meet today only know you from today forward. If you show up today as your best self, they don’t know anything about the last year’s ups and downs.
If your team is seeking clarity, you don’t have to apologize for the starts and stops that went before – give them clarity today. Do your best to do it again tomorrow.
How can you wipe the slate clean and start fresh today?
Be patient with everyone, but above all with yourself. Do not be disturbed because of your imperfections, and always rise up bravely from a fall. I am glad that you make a daily new beginning; there is no better means of progress in the spiritual life than to be continually beginning afresh. ~ St. Francis de Sales
These old saints knew what they were talking about.
