The URGE to get another nutrition training is INTENSE, right? You aren’t getting clients, you don’t have confidence…you are feeling defeated in your business. Maybe you feel like you need to get more education, more credibility, or more letters behind your name.
Please stop thinking this way!
In today’s episode of the Wealthy Coach Podcast, I’ll be discussing:
- The reason why investing in more health courses is not the solution
- Why feeling this way is not necessarily a bad thing
- The quickest way to get confidence in your biz and start moving things forward
I believe this idea of needing more and more certifications come down to 3 things.
Imposter syndrome is this feeling that you’re that you’re fraud or that you’re ripping people off because you don’t truly believe in yourself.
What does having imposter syndrome mean about you? What does it mean about you? Well, you might be surprised. When you’re having these imposter syndrome feelings, it means that you’re right on track and you’re exactly where you should be right now.
The reason you’re feeling imposter syndrome is because you are attempting to build a business, which is not easy and it’s not comfortable. Nobody ever built a business inside their comfort zone. So if you’re experienced imposter syndrome, what it means is that you’re outside your comfort zone. Congratulations! That’s a good thing, because if you’re trying to play it safe, you’re not going to succeed.
Remember that people at the highest levels of their career still experience imposter syndrome. So instead of looking at this as a bad thing, be okay with this feeling and realize that’s normal.
Fear of putting yourself out there
Putting ourselves out there on the internet, is scary and requires a lot of vulnerability. Again, it’s uncomfortable. I believe that you wanting to pursue yet another health certification, allows you to further delay the launch of your business or doing the uncomfortable things that you need to do in order to move forward. Think about that. Your fear is allowing you to procrastinate.
You have exactly what you need to help people. The fact that you have a single health coaching certification is ALL YOU NEED. You may not know as much as the most advanced functional medicine doctor out there, but you don’t need to. Over time you will feel more confident as you get more experience.
Lack of confidence
Do you really believe that taking another course is going to give you confidence? You’re going to be disappointed because it won’t give you any more confidence than you already have. When it comes to working with clients in the health and wellness industry, what gives you confidence is experience. No amount of courses will give you that confidence. No course will substitute for real world experience.
The first few times you work with clients, you’re not going to do it perfectly. No one does. You’re going to learn with every new client that you work with.
This imposter syndrome, lack of confidence, and fear of putting yourself out there needs to stop. Instead, you should be focusing on what you need to do to move your business forward. It’s super important that you work on your business and you start educating yourself on business.
