Common fears for entrepreneurial women
We’re not taught about our nervous system, so we’re not in tune with them, and yet they run the show.Ryane LeCesne
Human beings are instinctually fear-based, and to overcome those instincts, we need to learn how to work with our nervous systems which control our subconscious response to stimuli around us.
If we’re not mindful enough, and wedded enough to that goal, it’s very easy to close the laptop and say, “I’m going to do this tomorrow”.Ryane LeCesne
Putting things off to the next day is not necessarily “easy”, but it is “easily painful”, which jump-starts our nervous system to try to run away from it.
Get clear on your fear
Sitting in your fear is scary and overwhelming, so one of the first things to do as an entrepreneur is to get clear on what the fear that you are experiencing is about because you are then better equipped to help yourself through it.
What is the fear about? What’s happening? What’s the fear saying? Because those words are the sweet nothings that your mind is telling you that you need to hear.Ryane LeCesne
What your mind tells you about why you shouldn’t do something, or why you should put it off, can give you clues as to where you may need to spend some conscious time healing your thoughts and beliefs.
Get clear on your brilliance
What is it that you do that you love, that helps or supports other people, and that brings you excitement to work on and do?
Can you build confidence in yourself and be your best friend and supporter – as well as surrounding yourself with people that also support you?
Being a woman and an entrepreneur brings unique challenges because women experience slightly different aspects of life than men do.
If we have a life of socialization where we’re taught to feel like impostors, we’re now bringing that mindset into our business. We don’t just “voila” change because we have the title of “entrepreneur” … those are breeding grounds for impostor syndrome and perfectionism.Ryane LeCesne
Your confidence and sense of brilliance can carry you through the uncertainties, so get clear on them and hold them close, because they will support you as you overcome impostor syndrome.
