Self Doubt Is Normal, But Can Be Destructive
As a Success Coach, I would say that self doubt is one of the most common problems faced by my clients when they first come to me.
Even the most confident person you can think of has more than an occasional bout of self doubt. The trick is to accept it for what it is but then get on with the business of being successful.
That’s how most successful entrepreneurs beat the scourge of self doubt.Consistent self doubt is as crippling as clinical depression and you may soon find yourself in a paralysing rut that’s difficult to extract yourself from.
As a rookie – or even a seasoned entrepreneur, you have a lot riding on your ability to stay focused. Your ultimate level of success and satisfaction with your chosen career depends on it.
It’s imperative that you develop the resilience to overcome self doubt you’re sure to experience and replace that negativity with other thoughts designed to build your confidence rather than bringing you down.
Self doubt can cause indecision and procrastination – both lethal detriments to your ultimate success. Yet, every challenge you face in your quest as an online entrepreneur brings with it recurrent doubts from the depths of your subconscious that may prevent you from overcoming the challenges and achieving your goals unless you can get a grip on them and see them for what they are – lies.
The higher you climb on the ladder of success, the more self doubt you’re likely to have.
So, what can you do to alleviate some of these obstacles and direct your energy in a more productive manner?
It begins in your mind and progresses to taking action as you learn you really are capable of facing and overcoming any challenges that come your way.
Firstly, you should know and be comforted that you’re not the only person (successful or not) who has suffered from self doubt along the way.
Acknowledging that others have felt as you do and gone on to become successful in spite of self doubt can alleviate your worries and help you get past the feelings more quickly. If you haven’t already set some personal and business goals for yourself, do it immediately.
It’s part of the plan that you’ll use as your map to the magic kingdom of success. It’s perfectly okay to set lofty, long-term goals. Just make sure you set attainable, short-term goals, too – so you can experience success in small increments along the way.
Short term goals are especially important because they provide continuous realisation that you are moving along quite nicely and are well on your way to meeting those long term goals. It lets you bask in the sunshine of the smaller wins, while waiting for the big payoff at the end.
Use the principle of S.M.A.R.T. goal setting;
Strategic – Measurable – Achievable – Realistic – Time Based
Some things will happen along the road to success which are beyond your control. It’s important that you accept this and avoid blaming yourself. In all of our lives, a little rain must fall. Be prepared in every way you can and press onward to your goals.
