Take pride, take responsibility or just make the best of a situation: that’s the definition of owning it! As an entrepreneur you have to develop this skill because there will be plenty of times when you feel like you can’t do it. So how can you gain this ability? Here are some fun and original ways that can help build an ‘own it’ swagger.
Pump up the volume. You can’t own it if you don’t have an own it jam. Something that gets your blood moving, your heart racing and makes you feel like you can take on the world. Find your ‘own it’ anthem, and let it play when you need a little boost.
Remember: you’re smoking. A little self love in the mirror may be just what you need to feel like you are owning it. So give yourself a real pep talk. Tell yourself you look good, you’ve got this, and there is no one else as awesome as you. Be cheesy, be silly, but be serious about your smokin’ ability!
Dance it out. So you’ve got a hit jam, and you’re looking fine – now it’s time to make your body feel great. It’s time to move, swivel, bounce or do the splits, whatever it takes to get your blood moving. Dance your anxieties away, dance your thoughts of failure away and own that jig! (We recommend doing this in private if you aren’t a comfortable dancer. But it will help with pumping up the ‘own it’ factor if you aren’t afraid of what other people are thinking.)
