I experienced some self-doubt this morning
Nothing crazy major, but hey, I’m human 😉
I’ve learned some ways to combat self-doubt so it won’t ruin my day, week, month or YEARS.
Sharing with you some perspective that helps me every time…
Once the self-doubt crept into my mind, I first asked myself, **Is this self-doubt true?**
[ I needed to re frame things]
No, it was not true.
The things swirling in my head were irrational, silly and did not serve me best.
They were stories built in my mind that I had allowed to manifest and spread like a plague in my brain 🙄
In order to conquer the self-doubt, I needed to remind myself of the times in my life that contradicted… the false narrative that I had allowed to play inside My head (on repeat🤯)
[Re frame & Take Action]
What do I mean? Consciously recalling and writing down the moments when I had faced something difficult and figured my way through it:
-paying for college 100%
-building a journalism career without any “inherited connections”
-moving alone from city to city to work inside TV stations… and knowing not one person in the new city (mastering networking as a result☝️)
-learning how to listen & take care of my body better
-building a business from scratch and outpacing my old corporate salary within my first FT year
Each time, I had figured it out , even when I had doubts.
So why would “this thing “ be any different?
But every so often we have to remind ourselves of our power.
We must disrupt the self-doubt pattern by consciously reminding our brain that we are unstoppable and resilient beings
^^^ This is just ONE way to move past “that voice” “head trash“ etc … but there are many other ways, too
BTW ignoring it may help (temporarily), but in my experience it just gets louder, so I’d rather shut it up at the start 😂😂
How do you move past self-doubt?
You never know who this could help!
