The founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, doubled his net worth to almost 160 billion dollars in the 12 months of 2018. At the pinnacle of his success, Jeff continues to work hard and double down on his investments.
That’s the kind of dedication that leads to becoming one of the richest men in the world.
With the likes of Jeff Bezos out there, it can be a little intimidating to believe in your own abilities. But there is no other you in the world and your ideas hold an immense amount of value.
The entrepreneur tips on this list will help you to see that value and help you get ready to build your empire and give Jeff Bezos a run for his money.
1. Cut Back on Social Media
One reason that many people believe they aren’t good enough is that they are constantly comparing themselves to others on social media. If you are following a lot of people who seem to be thriving, it can be intimidating if you aren’t keeping up with their success.
But you have to remember everyone is on their own journey. You will get to your destination on your own time through your own hard work and experiences.
You also should remember that people don’t post about their worst moments on social media (usually). They are constantly filtering their lives through rose-colored glasses. You never know what’s really going on.
2. Read, A LOT
The best way to defeat the imposter feeling is by fortifying your knowledge with additional information. Read everything that you can get your hands on.
The more that you educate yourself, the more tools you will have to rely on as an entrepreneur. If you don’t have much time to read books, consider picking up a book on tape or podcast for a similar effect.
3. Network and Grow With Others
Whether you want to become an international speaker or just start a small business on your block, you need to learn how to expand your network. You need to find other entrepreneurs that can grow alongside you and help you overcome challenges as your business develops.
By having a team of prosperous people surrounding you and cheering you on, you will have access to a pool of resources and strength to fortify your efforts.
4. Dive in Deep with SMART Goals
One way to cure your imposter syndrome is by being successful. But many people who are doing well still feel like they are faking it.
That’s why it’s important for you to set goals for yourself that are measurable and attainable (so-called SMART goals). The more goals that you knock off your list, the better you will feel about your abilities.
5. Make a Commitment to Yourself
Being successful isn’t about winning in the first round you try. It’s about coming back every day full of energy and ready to attain your goals.
The only way you are going to fail is if you stop trying, or die. Make a commitment to yourself to keep going no matter what.
