Ladies, how often do you second guess yourself? I think women are much worse about this than men. My negative self talk goes something like this, “What do you think you are doing? You have no business telling people how to market. You’re not an expert. Who do you think you are?”
Why do we do this to ourselves?
“Everything. If you have me, you have everything.”
“I mean everything…all the time, wisdom, insight, skills, and resources that you need. Everything.”
“Oh….ok….I’m good to go then?”
“You’re good to go.”
As a Christian, I believe that God lives in and through me. And if I really believe that, then I must also believe he has equipped me for whatever he leads me to do. The trick is to listen for the leading. If I allow myself to tune in and be guided by him, I can’t go wrong–both for myself and for my clients. I will look for their highest good, and I will know how to achieve it.
There’s a passage in Scripture that reads, “You are complete in Him.” (Colossians 2:8-10). (And you thought that was from Jerry Maguire!) In a world where we sometimes feel inadequate or not quite up to the task, I find this very comforting indeed.
