Self-doubt is one of your biggest enemies. It will stop you from doing something you want to do faster than any other factor. So why do we let it dictate our lives? It certainly doesn’t have to and I’ll show you exactly how to kick that self-doubt to the curb for good!
DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF
One of the biggest problems we cause ourselves is thinking we aren’t as good as someone else. That’s simply not the case. We are all good at different things and that’s what makes us unique! You can’t compare yourself to other people. You’re in a different phase of your journey that those people. What if Ellen Degeneres had said that she didn’t want to have a talk show because Oprah was already doing that? Or if no other woman ever decides to run for President because Hillary already tried it and it didn’t work. Don’t let yourself fall into that trap. FOLLOW YOUR OWN PATH. You’re a trailblazer who doesn’t need to worry about what other people are doing.
POSITIVE THOUGHTS LEAD TO POSITIVE ACTION
The first time a negative thought creeps into your mind, replace it with a positive one. If you wake up one day and think, “I’ll never be as successful as so-and-so” immediately replace that thought with, “Today I’m going to be as successful as I want to be because I am capable”.
A positive mindset is the best way to quiet any doubts that start creeping.
You can do it.
You will do it.
And you will be great at it.
Positivity is a choice you have to make every day. Train your mind to go towards the positive thoughts first and it will eventually come naturally.
CELEBRATE THE SMALL STUFF
It’s easy to get discouraged if we aren’t progressing as fast as we think we should. Don’t let yourself give up. You’ve got to keep going to reach your dreams. No dream is ever easy. To keep a positive outlook, celebrate the small stuff. If you got one new client, celebrate it. If you checked items off your to do list, celebrate it. It doesn’t mean you have to throw a party but it does mean that you should mentally congratulate yourself for continuing to move forward.
No one ever gets anywhere by standing still. You are moving forward and that means you’re still going after your goals.
If you believe you can succeed, you will. Keep going and continue to be yourself. There’s no limit to what you can do!
