Self-doubt is something akin to the dark side of the force. It's a thinking that leans towards the impossibilities of a particular circumstance. There's no hope but only doubt. And obstacles that get thrown on your path are nothing but a chance of failure.
Self-doubt pauses progress in seizing opportunities that can put you in a leap to your dreams, or discover skills you have in you.
Start breaking your negative train of thoughts and embrace a new perspective with these habits!
Focus on The Possibilities
The moment your mind drops to the ‘it won't work' level, stop. Do not let it spiral out of your control to the point of no return. Give your mind a new perspective where a specific task or circumstance is possible.
Breaking your flow of thoughts when leaning towards the impossible and focusing on how gain is a giant step in overcoming your self-doubt.
Everyone has their own pace. It is not healthy for you to keep comparing what others have to yours, their achievements and milestones. You will get there. Dwelling in on someone else's successes will only drown you further into self-doubt. Snap out of it!
If you want to compare, you have to do it between yourself now and in the past. Look how far you've come and the obstacles you've conquered.
Talk to Someone About It
Keeping your thoughts bottled up inside your head could only multiply its exaggeration. Your thoughts get stacked until everything gets blown out of proportion. Find someone who would listen to you. Shedding these into the light can lift a huge weight off of your shoulders.
It's also a way to realize how your thoughts have become unreasonable. Hearing them out loud can get you a change in perspective.
Don't Dwell on The Past
Your mistakes in the past shouldn't affect and come back from the grave. Whenever you dig up the wrongs you've made from a long time ago, you're trapping yourself in negative thoughts. Stop right there and focus on the present. Live in it.
Positive thoughts can help wash away your fears in making a change or in stepping out of your comfort zone.
Overcoming self-doubt is a journey that differs in length for everyone. Remember, even your small steps count in your progress. Don't let your inner doubts stop you from exploring.
