EP 111: Back Yourself or Fail: Is It Really That Simple?

I wanted to take this moment to tell you something incredibly important,

Something that I believe a lot of new and existing business owners need to hear.

It’s time to back yourself 🏆 🥳

Now, sure. It’s inspirational and all but…

Why am I saying this?


The consequence of not backing yourself could be incredibly dangerous.

In business, times can be tough, and your will can be tested.


Continuous self-defeating thoughts often lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy.

In life, he who believes they can, and he who believes they can’t…
Are both usually right.

Unfortunately, I’ve noticed this time and time again
With new business owners who haven’t built the necessary confidence to push past their first few failures.

To tell you the truth, I’ve even made this exact same mistake.

Earlier in my career, when I was a plumber, I used to have a constant fear and anxiety around committing to the jump into business.

I would hold myself back by convincing myself that I didn’t have enough money saved,

Or that I didn’t have the skills that were required to run my own business yet.

At the time, I had a mortgage and was responsible for supporting my partner.

I knew that if I got this wrong, I was risking my family’s well-being.

It seemed like an incredibly risky step to take considering the consequences of getting this wrong.

Now, look. While those feelings are normal,

They shouldn’t be preventing you from achieving your desired outcome.

Luckily, they won’t be anymore.

In this week’s podcast episode, Grant and I are discussing:

  • How to back yourself
  • Taking control of your life
  • As well as mindset, dealing with failure, and more!

PS: Are you really backing yourself 100%? Going all in on the hard decisions you need to make or are you dipping your toe into multiple ponds at the same time?

I’ve been there too! Just send us an email and share where you aren’t backing yourself.
