TECHNOPHOBIA & BUSINESS SUCCESS: 7 Mindset Adjusting Tips that Move You From Fear to Confidence
Does the technological aspects of your business have you stuck?
Maybe what is holding you back is the fear of technology.
Below are some tips that can help you quickly eliminate the fear of learning technology skills and reduce the consequences on your business growth.
#1. Technology Will Continue to Change
It’s no surprise that you find all the technological changes overwhelming. However, this is good news because it means that you can expect constant change in the world of technology and accepting that fact can defuse fear.
#2. Technology Is Getting Easier to Use
As technology changes, it gets more user friendly. So the fearful thoughts you have about implementing a technological task will melt away once you actively begin using that technology because you will quickly realize it just was not as daunting has you mind had made it out to be.
The benefits of technology far outweigh the imagined fears you could have about technology. Understand that it is a tool that can be used to accomplish your goals of growing your profits in your business. It is a Ally, your loyal and faithful assistant.
#4. You’ve Already Done This Before
Realize that you have mastered many new and “foreign” things before. Why couldn’t you master the use of new technology now. Or at least understand it enough to know what you want so someone else can do it for you.
#5. Ask For Help
Free resources are available to assist you right now. Abby Stokes has fantastic tutorials on her site: http://abbyandme.com/tutorials. A google search can lead you to more free resources. Also be willing to invest in yourself. There’s no shame in asking for help by hiring someone to handle your technological needs.
#6. Eat An Elephant One Byte at A Time
There’s a quote by Sir Francis of Assisi that goes, “Do what is necessary; then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing what is impossible.” Believing you should know the entire prospect for using technology can be frustrating. Instead, start small. Learn one piece and master it then learn the next. Take technology step by step.
#7. Celebrate Your Successes
Each time that you use technology pat yourself on the back. No matter whether it is just turning on your phone or clicking the remote on the t.v. You might not realize it but these are vast technological devices that didn’t exist at all for many before you and they would have scared those people but you use it brilliantly right now.
