How can you overcome self-doubt? Doubt is related to fear. We have to do the things we are afraid of. Do the thing you fear the most. Plunge yourself into the moment.
Many people think about overcoming self-doubt, but it rarely works. The more you think about your doubts, the more your doubts multiply and will never disappear.
Think of thoughts as frozen actions. The heart has no fear until you think about it. Once you can move out of your thinking, out of your mind, out your head and get more into your body, then you can overcome self-doubt.
A lot of our doubts are present because of what we have been told from our childhood; this is what we call the social conditioning.
To overcome self-doubt, you have to make friends with the fears you have.
Many people doubt themselves because they are attempting to fit in. But ask yourself, “What is normal? Who is normal?” The world is full of people copying someone else, but everyone is unique in their own way.
To overcome self-doubt you have to embrace your uniqueness.
To deal with self-doubt and overcome it, you have to let go of fear (false evidence appearing real). A lot of self-doubt arises because we think someone is thinking what we are thinking. That is impossible because there is no one who sees the world with the same lens as you do.
To overcome self-doubt you have to stay grounded and let go of who you think you are and become who you truly are. A lot of people dealing with self-doubt have a hundred different voices in their head.
Which voice do you listen to? How do you make the right choice?
To make the right choice you have to reconnect back to the guide within which is your intuition. That voice within you is your guide. The problem is: what happens when you have 100 voices? You have 100 different guides. Who is telling the truth?
You have to see what is in your environment that is distracting you from hearing your true authentic voice.
More so, you have to realize that all of us have both positive and negative self talks. The secret is to embrace the positive self-talk which inspires you, but also to embrace the negative self-talk.
By doing so, you let go of the duality and can begin to see things in their exact way.
Be free. Do the things you fear the most and have courage because fear will be your greatest setback. Let love guide you.
To overcome self-doubt you have to let go of what other people think of you and to do this, you have not to identify with the person. Whenever you allow someone else to give you value, you lose confidence. Create your own value system.
True confidence comes from within and that is what is needed to get rid of self-doubt.
