Stop letting self doubt get in the way of showing up in your life

August 2, 2017
The sad truth that every one of us faces every day, is that we are only as great or as successful as we decide to be. Opportunity and success comes from what you allow to come into your life. The universe and people in your life are constantly trying to shower you with gifts, abundance and opportunities. However it is our disconnection to our true self worth and playing small that is robbing us of the progress and happiness we all are wanting in our life.
Self doubt is among the biggest of the self sabotaging behaviors that can show up for us. We engage in self doubt whenever we find ourselves playing small, comparing ourselves to others or not believing in ourselves or our passions.
The only way to overcome self doubt is to make a decision to claim your worth – step up, claim the space and be the best version of yourself! Until you decide that you are enough, that you are worthy of opportunities, love, success, commitment and happiness cannot come to you.
Here are the 3 most common ways that self doubt is at play in your life –
  1. Not speaking your truth – if you do not believe in your thoughts, ideas and opinions you are less likely to share them with others. This is a common way that self doubt is robbing you of love, freedom, connection and opportunity. Learn and decide to trust in your ideas, thoughts and passions and boldly share them with others with conviction. What you have to share is worthy, brilliant and necessary to the people and projects you care about. Believe in yourself and your abilities and begin to speak your truth.
  2. Needing the input of others – are you a person who needs the input and/or permission of others before you make a decision in your life? This is the need for approval or ideas/validation for others instead of boldly making decisions and moving forward fearlessly. Many of us engage in this self sabotaging behavior as a result of self doubt. This too can be corrected with awareness and commitment to feel your way into things and trust your intuition. All of us have the capacity to make great decisions and activate our abilities of discernment to improve our lives. Trust yourself right away and really step up to making great decisions that bring greater happiness and success into your life.
  3. People Pleasing – many of us that doubt ourselves are people pleasers, we okay the happiness of others above ourselves until we find ourselves in a life that is based on the approval of others and not our own happiness. Are you guilty of letting other peoples approval of you or your life choices affect how you play in the world? Instead, choose your own happiness as the most important and choose to let go of all doubt about the progress you are making. When we trust ourselves and the journey we move forward with greater flow and live lives that we are excited to be in and that fulfill our passions and our success.
As you go about your week this week be mindful of the ways that doubt are creeping into your every thoughts and decisions. None of us intentionally surrender our power to self doubt. In order to consciously choose greater freedom and happiness from this form of self sabotage we must live consciously believing and loving ourselves every day…
