I want to start posting on social media to promote my business. I keep telling myself I need more certifications etc. in order to make this work. I’m working on: finishing my life coaching certification, a functional nutrition certification, a masters in counseling – so clearly I’ve attached meaning to degrees and certifications.
My biggest thing is that I WANT to share on social media. I have so many things to share and teach, I think I’m great on camera and video, I want to do it so bad, but I feel like I can’t. I want the certifications first. I see that on some level I believe that having the certification makes me more resistant to criticism, but it’s clearly also stopping me from starting.
How would I have to feel to start posting on social media? Confident. I’d have to believe that people want to hear what I have to say. I’d have to believe that I have something valuable to offer, certifications or not. I’d have to believe that I don’t need the certifications.
I think I have some more work to do around this.
