Something we all have in common is self-doubt.
For me, self-doubt screams the loudest when things don’t work out the way I intended and I am left wondering –“What did I do wrong!! I must be missing something. How did I fuck this up?”
I know for some of my clients, self doubt is all up in their face when they are contemplating a new project or something they really want and they are paralyzed by the voices saying- “Who do you think you are? You’ll never pull it off. YOU CANT HAVE THIS, so don’t even try.”
For other clients self doubt slips in after they have done the work and are waiting for what they want to show up, and all they can notice is the lack of what they are wanting and they begin to question- “What am I doing wrong? Why isn’t this here yet? I was crazy to think I could have this.”
Can you guess the common belief underneath all of these examples?
It distracts you, holds you back, makes you feel bad, and prevents you from making the choices that will move you forward.
IT”S THE BELIEF THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOU. That somehow you don’t measure up…. are lacking in some way….not good enough.
Hear me when I say this- There is nothing wrong with you!
You are freaking fabulous….you are here to explore, play and experiment and ENJOY life to its fullest. Part of this process is discovering things that work and don’t work for you.
You can’t get it wrong. Once you know this deep down in your core it’s so much easier to put yourself out there, take risks, make new choices and allow yourself to experiment with life.
When you feel self-doubt creeping in, acknowledge it’s there, but don’t buy into it.
Notice what isn’t working for you about the situation, and what you are afraid of, and then choose to focus on how you want things to be. (Since YOU get to choose what you focus on.)
Rule your world by picturing yourself enjoying what you want, being fabulous, and getting it all done. You got this!
