Overcoming Worry & Self-Doubt

worry and self doubt

Getting your mind on your side working as a friend instead of a foe sounds a lot easier than it is. There’s many things you could easily give up if you were to listen to your biggest critic but just because you may not see results immediately doesn’t mean the action isn’t worthwhile. Although you may not be relishing in the fruits of your labour stick with it, good things happen with time.

Don’t talk yourself out of living the life you’ve always dreamed. Living better begins with you. What are you willing to sacrifice to get to where you want to be? Are you letting something hold you back that could easily be changed? Most of us are.

Most of us have silly habits that we’ve established over the course of our lives; Silly habits that restrict us from accessing our full energy and distract us from being our best selves.

Nourish your energy or just monitor it till it depletes, truthfully the decisions are up to you.

“The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself the more energy you will have” – Norman Peale

Dedicate yourself to a higher purpose, begin to live soulfully. Find your voice and let it speak, do things that nurture your heart and mind. Find a channel in which you can influence others, have solid reasons behind your actions.

Live for something other than yourself. Stop living with such a short-term perspective; begin with the end in mind.

“You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do” Henry Ford

Organize yourself and establish a plan. There no reason to start selling your plan to others or convincing others to jump aboard until you’ve done your due diligence.  You can’t be expected to manage others if you have yet to learn to manage yourself.

It takes time, practice and following through with your smaller plans until you become consistent enough to follow through with bigger ones. Understand that gradually you will have the skills you need if you dedicate yourself fully to your plan.

“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced” – Vincent Van Gogh

Learn to rid the negative voices; learn to get them on your side. The voices will always be there it’s inevitable but they can be silenced through consistent practice.

“The sharpest minds often ruin their lives by over thinking the next step, while the dull win the race with eyes closed” – Bethany Brookbank

This has been me for the longest time (not to say I’m the sharpest mind but) I have been stuck in limbo contemplating the next move for a long time. Don’t let this be you, don’t let over thinking ruin you.

Don’t let self-doubt stand in the way of the things you truly want to do. When you begin to think feelings of self-doubt, ask yourself “what’s the worst that can happen?”

Worry helps no one and only creates more problems, choose to let go of your problems and to begin accepting what is. It is what it is, start accepting life and finding solutions to move past your problems rather than lingering in them.

Worry and self-doubt can destroy you mentally, physically and emotionally until you’re completely depleted of all your resources and begin feeling lost and hopeless.

We’re not all the best at everything, matter of fact most of us just wish we were good at something. Find your strengths and work on your weaknesses… realize everyone has the same twenty four hours in a day; the difference is what you do with them. Stop pouting and complaining and instead start sacrificing those things that don’t equate to the overall end vision.

Realize that maybe you can’t change everything just yet but what you can do is start taking charge. Grab the bull by the horns and continue practicing till there’s no more self-doubt and that momentum is all that is. Take action so one day you can replace your doubt with confidence and faith in your future.
