Overcoming Self-doubt

Self-doubt is that little voice that screeches us to a halt just when we
are about to make a decision Are you sure? have you made the right decision
here? what will people think? is your business idea good enough? what if you
fail?
  We have all heard them, this process
is normal and healthy but this self-preserving mechanism should never become
debilitating.

Of course It’s extremely important when embarking on any new idea to
think things through, to try and plan for all eventualities, but remember all
of your ducks will never be in a row and sometimes we need to take that leap of
fate to truly grow “go with what you have, right now, just go, take the leap
and learn how to fly on the way down” Les Brown.

Life is extremely short and we owe it to ourselves to explore every part
of life, ourselves and be the best we can be in the time we have been
given.
  Self-doubt is fine, listen to it,
embrace it, feel it, take on board its questions, act upon them if need be but
then move on.
  There is no such thing as
failure, getting something wrong just means that you have not perfected your
art form yet, it’s a learning process not a full stop. Instead see this
unforeseen setback as room for improvement & growth.
  Life’s way of telling you to practice more,
study what went wrong, identify the lesson and take from it.
 

When you approach life with this learning view and start to accept that
things may not always go your way, we are reducing our fear of failure and thus
reducing the power of self-doubt over us.
 Remember, self-doubt is only one part of you
and it doesn’t like risk taking even though some of the best decisions ever
made have been made with incredible risk.
