don't think you have anything to say?

I don't have anything to say.
 
Whether you're trying to write your first newsletter or are struggling to create a caption for an Instagram post, THIS is one of the biggest beliefs holding you back from creating content for your business. 
 
I don't have anything to say might seem like a pretty innocent thought but it can limit you in big ways. That's because it's hard to create content from a place of self-criticism or doubt. And honestly, if you don't think you have anything to say, you'll struggle to find anything to say at all
 
So how do you get past this belief when you feel absolutely certain it's true?
 
The solution is at once simple and complex. It's simple because you just need to do one thing. It's complex because that one thing requires a willingness to question your own beliefs, and that isn'talways easy. 
 
The thing you need to do is find a way to believe that the opposite is true. You need to find a way to believe that you DO have something to say.
 
I know that feels impossible right now but hang with me for a moment because I'm going to help you get there.
 
Here's how: we're going to use the power of a great question to move you toward the new belief. In this situation, my favorite question to ask yourself is what would I write about if I WAS the kind of person who had something to say? 
 
This might seem too easy but this process works because your brain is primed to answer questions. So when you ask it this particular question, it will get you thinking like someone who has something to say – and give you at least a few hints (if not an outright answer) as to what that something could be.
 
In the very least, you'll have some loose ideas to build on, which is better than the blank page you had before. In the best case scenario, you'll know exactly what you want and need to say in the next piece of content you create.
 
With love,
