We are all prone to self-doubt. But when we embrace that doubt into our lives over and over we then become a victim of the biggest lie of all.

 

The biggest lie:            I can’t.

This lie of self-doubt reduces you to a small, diluted version of who you really are.

This lie whispers that you are incapable, incompetent, a powerless victim of people and circumstances.

Worst of all is that the lie of self-doubt leaves you without hope that you could ever be different. Without the belief that you can change, you never will. You doom yourself to living small.

 

The real truth:        You can.

You are enough.

You can change what you choose to.

 

 

How to drown out the biggest lie

✅  Say ‘stop’ when your self-doubt bubbles up. This will disrupt that thought pattern.

✅  Be kind to yourself and ask “What is 1 small step I can take to move forward in this situation?”  Take that small step and celebrate that you did.

✅  Accept setbacks as opportunities to learn, and as normal happenings in everyone’s life who has courage and takes chances. This is you – brave.

✅  Make an action decision to move forward and correct your course along the way. The worse thing is to let self-doubt prevent you from taking action.

✅  Don’t worry what others may think and absolutely do not compare yourself with others. You are on your unique journey, not theirs.

✅  Have a safe, trustworthy friend who can encourage and support you in those times when your strength or energy is low. We all have those times and that’s ok.

 

 

Remember the truth: YOU CAN

 

Freedom from Self Doubt

Watch this 14 minute YouTube video of an amazing man, BJ Davis, who use to live a life of ‘I can’t’ and ended up in jail. He came to believe in ‘I can’ and his whole world changed. Watch how.

 

In BJ Davis’ words, you can:

 Let your past define you

OR

Use your past to refine you.
