How to Overcome Self-Doubt
Self-Doubt has the potential of ruining your happy hours. It is easy to let circumstances and self-doubt spoil your business. It will help if you learn how to deal with it. But before jumping on the ways to deal with it, it is crucial to let you know where these doubts come from!
Where Self Doubt Comes From
Doubt tends to appear when you’re on the edge of something big, trying something out of the box or going out of your comfort zone.
When we trek a path of purpose, it can feel lonely and daunting and new and exciting. Like in every new adventure, the thrill is short-lived as we face our biggest fears of uncertainty, and soon enough, doubt creeps in. Your mind explodes with questions like;
- What do I do?
- Where do I begin?
- How will I do this?
- Who am I?
- Why me?
And we are filled with incredible fear – paralyzing our ability to move forward. But the fact is you are not alone if it is happening in your life. Life is unpredictable, and you always need to cheer up yourself!
Different Ways to Deal with Self Doubt
Boosts Your Self Confidence
The opposite of doubt is the confidence that comes from experience. As we look back, we’re able to see how far we’ve come and overcome struggles and obstacles, whereas doubt, when we face something from the first time, we look for clues of our past to overcome them.
This is the time when you need to motivate yourself that it is not an impossible thing, and you can do it.
Trust Your Ability
Doubt will keep you stuck. We must overcome doubt by trusting in our ability that things are just new for you, but you have in-born ability to tackle your fear. So, give yourself props! The proof is in your progress.
Having Complete Faith in Your Creator
You are born unique with unique DNA! If you have minimum faith in yourself, then trust your Creator, who did not create you purposeless. I know this to be true for my journey – personally, professionally, spiritually.
A Great Reminder to Self
Even I get caught up in my cloud of self-doubt and find myself headed down the comparison path. I find myself looking outward, comparing my chapter 1 to another’s chapter 10. All this does is keep me stuck, playing, and living small, even though being called for a greater purpose.
You need to get through this and find an alternative way and keep you remind yourself you can go through this obstacle!
Never Stop Moving
We all start somewhere, and right here is precisely where you need to be. Take one step, then another. Not every action will yield forward progress; however, progress is progress. It’s all part of the journey. So, never stop moving.
Final Words on Self-Doubt
Transformation begins with self-awareness. Let’s learn to shift our thoughts from fear, worry and doubt and love, prosperity and confidence and change our lives from the inside out. When in doubt, trust in yourself and your calling, they haven’t failed you before, and that should be enough confidence to keep going.
Here is a question for you: Are you moving toward your purpose with confidence?
