OVERCOMING SELF DOUBT
Just like a thief in the night, it sneaks up on you, that niggling little voice that erodes your self confidence and leaves you wondering if you are doing something wrong or possibly not doing anything right. The next thing you know you are thinking that you will never reach your goals.
Self doubt happens to all of us, and it seems to love the job it has taken on of tormenting us. It's mean voice loves telling us that we can never be successful or have our dreams. It laughs at us when we make a mistake or take a misstep. It compares us to others whom we perceive as being more successful.
We don't have to listen to that voice, though. When self doubt rears its ugly head, we have to remember all of the things we have accomplished in our lives. Remember that all of the missteps we took led us down a better path. Remember all of the times we have faced fear and conquered it.
Some steps you can take to overcome self doubt:
You are never alone in your self doubting. It is something that we all face in our lives, but remember that you, not that voice of self doubt, are in control.
