Hi there, I completely understand how you feel. Making decisions for your own business can be intimidating, especially when you don’t have any guidance.

So how can we stop second-guessing ourselves and constantly wondering, “am I doing this right?”

A great way to stop second-guessing yourself and asking if you’re doing something right is to take a step back and reassess the situation.

Ask yourself, “What is my goal?” and “What are the steps I need to take to reach that goal?” Once you have identified your goal and the steps needed to achieve it, focus on taking each step one at a time. This will help you stay on track and create a sense of momentum and progress that can help you stay motivated.

Additionally, if you start to second-guess yourself, remind yourself of the goal and the steps you need to take to get there. This will help you stay focused and on track.

It’s Time for Self-authorship

Self-authorship is the process of becoming the author of your own life. It is a journey of self-discovery that involves understanding and developing your own values, beliefs, and purpose. It also involves taking responsibility for your decisions, actions, and outcomes. By engaging in this process of self-authorship, you can gain greater self-awareness and develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. This can help you to be more confident and successful in all areas of your life.

5 tips to get you started in becoming a confidant decision making:

Start small

Starting small is a great way to build up your confidence and make decisions. Begin by making small decisions each day, such as what to wear, what to eat for lunch, or what route to take home. As you make these decisions, you will gain confidence in yourself and your ability to make decisions. As your confidence grows, you can start making larger decisions.


Research is a great way to become informed on any decision you have to make. Start by looking into your options and getting a better understanding of what each one offers. Once you have an idea of the different options, you can then look into the potential pros and cons for each option. This will help you decide on which option is best for you. Taking your time to do the research and make an informed decision is a great way to ensure that you are making the right choice.


When it comes to making decisions, it’s important to prioritize what matters to you the most. Think about what is most important to you and make sure that you take that into account when making decisions. It can be helpful to make a list of what matters most to you and use that as a guide when making decisions. This will help to ensure that you make decisions based on your values and can help you stay focused on what’s important.

Ask questions

It’s great that you are taking the time to ask questions and seek advice from trusted advisors or mentors. It shows that you are taking the time to think through your decision carefully. Asking questions can help to uncover information and insights that you may not have considered before. Some questions to consider might include: What do you think are the pros and cons of this decision? What advice do you have for me? What other options should I consider? What have you seen work or not work in similar situations? What do you think is the best course of action? Ultimately, it is your decision to make, but getting feedback and guidance from people who you trust and respect can be invaluable!

Trust yourself

It is important to place trust in yourself and your own decision-making abilities. While it is natural to sometimes second guess yourself or feel uncertainty, don’t let it hold you back. Believe in yourself and your capabilities and you can achieve anything!

To summarise, as a businessman or woman it is important to remember to trust your instincts and have confidence in your decisions. By learning to recognize and accept your mistakes, you can become better equipped to make informed decisions. Focus on the facts and remember to ask for help from experts when needed.

Don’t be afraid to take risks, but also be smart about it. Don’t forget to take time for yourself and celebrate your successes, both big and small.

Lastly, never stop learning and growing to stay ahead of the competition.

Good luck with your business strong soul!
