How to Get Beyond Self Doubt
People are powerful, but we don’t always tap into that power. There are things in our everyday lives and from our past that keep up from really, truly experiencing all that we are and can be. It doesn’t have to be that way.
One of the most damaging and demeaning things to our self esteem and overall productivity is self doubt. It can rob us of our peace, happiness and our purpose and please trust and know that we have all been put here for a purpose.
So if you are going through a bout of hesitation or low self worth, there are some things you can do to get beyond self-doubt.
Change Your Thinking
You have got to get away from “stinking thinking.” Pump yourself up in your mind because that is the first place that you are defeated. As the saying goes: “As a man thinks, so is he.” Your mind is a delicate thing that can make or break you so change how you view you.
Change Your Speaking
Don’t say things aloud that are detrimental to your self worth. Don’t put yourself down. Don’t mumble insults to yourself and don’t join in anyone else’s bagging you (stop them immediately). The things we say about ourselves we believe and that goes back to changing your thinking.
Change Your Circle
If you are around people that are constantly in competition with you and the only way they feel better about themselves is to put you down, stop being around them. You have to surround yourself with those who will encourage, enlighten and enhance who you are.
Change Your Environment
Sometimes the best thing to do is just leave. If that means leaving a job or a city, then that is what you have to do for your life. Self-doubt is a debilitating thing that can lead to other more serious actions.
You have to be willing to do what it takes to be better and live better. Don’t hold back in finding the best life this world has to offer.
