Self-doubt is something every one seems to struggle with at least once in their lifetime. It is only human nature to want to question things and to second guess them. The problem with this, is that eventually self doubting behaviours become admissible.
We as human beings, tend to fall into the pattern of doubting ourselves and it’s frankly, not good. When we begin to fall into these patterns we eventually lose all will to carry onward because we are so in debt to our doubts. It’s clearly a negative concept. Self doubting behaviours deteriorate the person we have the potential to become. Doubt in itself is okay but when it’s paired with something as sensitive as a person’s well being, it becomes exhausting. Don’t let yourself fall into the self doubting booby traps! You are capable. You are able. You have worth.
Deterioration within who you are as a person as a result of self doubt can be devestating. It is possible to reach a point of always doubting yourself.
With that being said, here are my 3 must follow steps for eliminating self-doubt.
1. Come to terms with whatever it is you are trying to achieve.
Recognize that upon first try there may be pitfalls and it’s normal and okay. But, you must proceed.
2. Talk yourself through your doubting behaviour.
Tell yourself it’s okay to be scared but it is not okay to let doubt control you.
3. Release the pressure and disengage when you need to.
Every now and then you’re going to need to disengage. By this I literally mean take a break. Walk away from whatever it is you’re trying to do and come back to it within a few minutes.
