The 1 Thing that is Probably Holding You Back from Success
Ever wonder why you sometimes feel distant from success, or why despite your hard work, nothing seems to be paying off?
Maybe you have had a business venture that you’ve been wanting to launch, but you just can’t seem to get started.
Chances are there is 1 thing that is holding you back from achieving all that you aspire.
Self-doubt. A lack of confidence in oneself and one's abilities.
Even if you feel like the most confident person in the world, you will likely still experience feelings of self-doubt. Wondering if your presentation is good enough, if you’re worthy of a promotion, or even if that business idea you always dream of is even practical to achieve.
When you feel this way, you begin to lose confidence in both your abilities and your being in general. So, how do we, as self-doubters, change our mindset to one of a winner and learn to conquer the innate self-doubt feelings that always seem to be close-by?
We do so by learning to trust our intuition, our gut. I’m sure you know that little feeling you get inside when something you’re experiencing is a bit off or maybe it’s just right. Learning to trust that feeling early is what will help you conquer self-doubt for years to come.
While it may sound easy, our intuition is often masked by other influences that can cloud our decisions, notably one of these masks being self-doubt.
However, by practicing trusting our inner gut, we can learn to then apply that same mentality to larger aspects of our lives.
Some great practices that you can start today including putting yourself in uncomfortable situations and recognizing how you feel. If you aren’t comfortable public speaking, learn why you feel that way instead of simply avoiding it. This is how we learn to recognize our intuition and what it tells us to feel and reason with it in a sense.
I wish you the best of luck conquering self-doubt: the one thing that holds us back from achieving success. Know that it is doable, so don’t give in to what tells you that it isn’t.
