Self doubt and how to recognize it
You know what? You don’t know what you’re doing. Seriously, you’re no expert. You probably aren’t even sure what your next move is going to be. What makes you an expert? Did you go to school to get your information or read a book or something? Quit fooling yourself, you know you’re in over your head.
That’s doubt. Know what it looks and sounds like. Know how it makes you feel and don’t you ever forget. Doubt can destroy your confidence when you hit a bump in the road. Know the difference between doubt and fact. You’d be surprised, sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between the two when you are having a debate in your brain moderated by your Self Esteem.
Take a step back and separate your doubt from actual facts. The devastating or embarrassing end to your project or business venture probably won’t happen. It’s only playing out in your head, which IS NOT reality. It’s not. Keep going, keep working and keep pushing forward. It’ll be okay. Focus on the positive and all the good you are doing.
