When I started my business and my total new life, I knew I had a bit of work to do. Sure, I had lots of ‘work stuff’ to do, but the biggest thing I realised early on was in terms of my own confidence, endurance and strength.
I used to have low confidence (which is obviously bad if you want to be a Coach) and I realised that I had a journey of powerhouse change ahead of me.
As I have worked through this over the years, I consider my own confidence very healthy now. I think I’m totally awesome, yet I know I make mistakes and am very open to reason.
One experience I had yesterday, really helped me even think more of myself. It was something quite odd, extremely unusual and something arguably minor compared to what else I have been doing.
As I arrived at Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour nice and early to run my first next gen Premium Mastery Workshop, I saw myself up on the big screen all over the Novotel. It had “Profitable Marketing with Edward Zia” on all the screens and it just stunned me and hit me in style.
It was that moment where it all got real for me and I was blown away that me, the guy living in his car a decade before is running high end PAID WORKSHOPS at one of the best Novotel’s in the world. Strangely enough it wasn’t until this moment that I felt how great it was and it paved the way for a very successful workshop.
My advice and thinking? As we pursue our dreams, push ourselves, come up with new ideas and more, we improve our own view of ourselves. Telling yourself ‘your awesome’ all day is a far cry and seeing something visual proving you are awesome.
As we go for it, push ourselves, it’s great to keep an eye open as to how we can change. When we spot something that emotionally hits us, stop, pause and enjoy it.
I certainly did with my name all over Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour. I started thinking too, “I think I may get to really enjoy this!”. Even though it was just a ‘sign’, seeing my name up in lights improved my self love. Nice!
Love your work, thank you for the read and thank you everyone for making the workshop wonderful. I won big too!
