I’m sure you’re familiar with that question. It’s the most common question people ask when they begin to doubt themselves. While self-doubt usually holds us back from doing things we want and living the life we desire, it doesn’t have to be that way. I was reading an article today and this part caught my attention:
… we’re only the main character in our own story. In those of our friends we’re the supporting characters. In everybody else’s stories we’re window dressing. Everybody has their own problems to worry about and they’re much busier thinking about their problems – does she like me, is my dad an alcoholic, will my mother find my porno mags – than they are caring about yours.
I began to consider how different my life might be today if I hadn’t wasted so much time thinking everyone cared about my problems as much as I did! As I continued reading, I another light-bulb moment was sparked:
Self-doubt can be a tool for self-improvement, if you let it, while it can be an anchor holding you back if you don’t. To use self-doubt you’ve got to accept you’re not perfect and that you will fail, but that it’s okay to fall on your face sometimes. After all, it’s failure that makes us better, provided we use it as an opportunity to learn rather than to hate ourselves.
It’s time to conquer self-doubt!
Isn’t it time to start living the life you desire? Wouldn’t it be great to use it as a tool for self-improvement? Read the full article here: How I Conquered Self-Doubt and How You Can Too
