Why is this so hard? This whole believing in yourself thing? Believing that you are enough? That you are worth it? That you are amazing and whole and naturally creative and resourceful?
Self-doubt and second-guessing myself are the two biggest things that get in my way... sometimes on the daily... especially when I am doing something outside of my comfort zone, something that is demanding that I really show up. Most people probably think I have no fears or doubts, and I JUST GO FOR IT! but the truth is, I get in my own way all the freaking time.
I doubt what I have to say is valuable, I question if what I am delivering is enough, I second-guess what to title this newsletter (every newsletter), what to name my next workshop and what activities to do during a leadership program. HERE IS THE THING... I have these thoughts, doubts and fears, but I DO IT ANYWAY!
Here is a quotes that really resonated with me this week (as a recovering perfectionist)...
Here is the thing - courage is not the absence of fear, but it is the ability to be scared and do it anyway. Confidence isn't something you are born with, it is something you develop over time by doing things that are a little scary and realizing that you are way more capable than you give yourself credit for.
I know what my kryptonite is (self-doubt and second-guessing) and I have systems in place to help me move through that: a supportive partner, amazing coaches (yes I have two coaches), an incredible community and my greater commitment to making a difference rather than letter those limiting beliefs win.
Steps to Believing in Yourself MORE!
1. Be Aware of Your Limiting Beliefs - we all have them - it's okay :)
2. Acknowledge Them - stop making yourself wrong for thinking those things
3. Take Action - DO SOMETHING - Action Cures FEAR!
