You're doing better than you think
We all have days when it feels like we're just not living up to our own expectations. That inner voice tells us we're not good enough.
We think others are doing better than us. We tell ourselves off and put ourselves down:
We're rubbish at social media. We can't do technology. We're not efficient enough, we haven't finished everything.
Others have more fans on social media. They're selling more, taking more bookings. They're more successful than you.
You're almost certainly doing better than you think. Some will do better on some days, but not all the time.
The beauty of small businesses is that they're all different, so individual - it's impossible to really compare.
Is it time to give yourself more credit for all that you do, for what you've managed to achieve?
After a busy time, plenty of obstacles and challenges, isn't it time to just tell yourself you're doing well?
You're here. You've got through.
I meet so many tourism business owners who're so modest and humble about all they've achieved. They talk about their long 'To Do' list and rarely think about how much they've done, how much they've learnt and achieved. They don't realise that others look at them in admiration.
The people who shout and brag, who're 'showy' about their successes are rarely telling the full story.
You're here. You've got through. You're doing much better than you perhaps think!
