Entrepreneur and business owner, Kirsty Pennal has experience in coaching and mentoring budding entrepreneurs. “Excuses are lies to yourself and they hold people back from achieving success,” said Miss Pennal. Last week, Miss Pennal decided to host a company workshop for the contractors at Penmex, explaining the negative impact of excuses and why they are holding people back.
1. It’s in your head
There is a famous quote by Napoleon Hill: “Your only limitation is the one you set up in your own mind!” More often than not, the things holding people back are in their mind. While there aren’t any physical roadblocks, mental or emotional blocks can instill a sense of fear and anxiety which can lead to a lack of confidence which holds people back.
2. This makes me uncomfortable
“Comfort zones are great things, however, nothing great ever happens inside of a comfort zone,” said Managing Director, Kirsty Pennal. At Penmex they recognise that stepping outside of a comfort zone can be extremely daunting and that this can be a real mental block for people. “Sometimes people just need to make the leap of faith and put themselves out there,” said Miss Pennal.
Miss Pennal argues that self-confidence is imperative for entrepreneurs. “If you don’t believe in yourself then others won’t believe in you,” said Miss Pennal. The firm argues that no one is immune to experiencing self-doubts, believing that they’re not good enough. However, it’s crucial not to let a lack of confidence prevent people from doing great things. “If something doesn’t work out first time round, don’t be disheartened, try again. Improve upon it and then improve upon it again and then practice some more and then improve again,” said Miss Pennal.
