We all have bouts of self-doubts but what happens when it starts to take over our life ? We want to break free but cant.We are so into deep that it seems impossible to break free.Seems,it only seems impossible but its very much in our control.Here are four steps that can help you get over your self-doubt.
Take the first step
How many times have you decided to do something but then decided against it.That something could have made a difference in your life but you were too consumed with self-doubt to do anything about it.We are so afraid of failing that we forget why this “something” is so important to us.Take the first step.When a toddler decides to stand up and walk for the first time,he takes his “not so perfect” first step,he doesn’t know if can actually walk across the room or if he will fall and make a fool of himself but he still takes the first step.He isnt afraid of failing.Comparing our world to that of a toddler may seem stupid but that’s because our minds are so full of doubt that we only see what may not work.Taking the first step is the first defeat of our self-doubt.
Filter The Negative
Is every negative criticism or feedback 100% Negative? That nothing good can come of it ? If you answered yes then you are positively 100% wrong.As someone who started a business at 25 I got a lot feedback,both good and negative.Sure the mean and unwanted opinions of many did demotivate at times but then there were those that actually helped me plan my business better.I took what was good and applied it.People will always be there to give you negative opinions which in turn fill you up with self-doubt but what you can do is filter which opinions actually help you grow and make you a better person and which are just pure mean.Focus on the good side of a comment.If you can apply that to your life, its worth paying attention to.Always take advice/feedback/opinions from someone who is where you want to be.
Saying NO is ok
I know a lot of people who keep feeling guilty when they don’t oblige to someone.Its nice when you do little things for a person occasionally but getting into a mindless loop of saying yes to everyone and everything, that is eating up your life.Its a good thing to be friendly but its a whole different thing to do something just so you can be “good” in the eyes of the other person.If you are stuck in this constant habit of saying yes because you don’t want to disappoint that person then start slow.Start with a single NO.It maybe difficult at first but you need to learn how to say no,more importantly why say no ? The ans – your priorities.You know your priorities and you have them sorted.Learning to say no will give you a chance to do what actually is important in your life.
Failing is a part of our life without it we wouldn’t be our most humble selves.Learn from it,see where you went wrong and do what needs to be done – fix it.It doesn’t mean the end it only means we tried a different path that did not work for us.Failure teaches us more than success ever will.Embrace it.Learn from it
