10 Toxic Thoughts That Will Slam the Brakes on Your Freelancing Success

Updated: Sep 30, 2023

(plus some quick reminders to help redirect your thoughts when the negativity comes creeping in...😒)

10. “I'm not good enough” – Says who? Remember where you’ve been and where you’re going!

9. “I'm too busy” – Prioritize and delegate your life. Make time for it.

8. “I’ll fail anyway” – Failure is subjective. It shows desire and effort. Embrace it.

7. “I'm too old/young” – Age really is just a number and it will always get in the way if you let it.

6. “It's too risky” – Is it really? Or are you just stalling? Calculated risks can equal great rewards.

5. "I don't have the resources” – Not many of us do. So, get thinking and get creative.

4. “Others are better” – Comparison is the thief of joy. Focus on YOUR journey, not theirs.

3. “I don't deserve success” – BS! You absolutely deserve success! Know your worth. Own your achievements.

2. “Nobody cares” – Sometimes, that’s a good thing. Just believe in your value, and others will too.

Wrapping up with the Number 1 objection that every putter-offer loves...

1. “I’ll start tomorrow” – We all know that tomorrow never comes. Make your move. Take a step. Start now!




Pretty sure that every one of these has tripped me up at some point. Especially, 4.

But here I am, on my journey. Not theirs 😎
