I have been on a self-empowerment kick lately. Writing posts about confidence, your inner critic, and believing in yourself.
I used to be the queen of self-doubt. I stayed tucked safely inside my box feeling quite comfortable but also pretty stagnant. I didn’t want to make waves or raise eyebrows. I let fear keep me small. I thought content = happy.
I was wrong.
I got to a point in my life where the apathy of the predictable felt worse than the fear of the unknown.
It was time for a change.
And the first thing I needed to do was get a handle on the insecurities that were holding me back; keeping me from living large.
So believe me when I say, I get it.
I am extremely passionate about helping women live a bold life. And sometimes this means, helping them get out of their own way. I created a free course for women who are ready to stop letting their inner critic and limiting beliefs hold them back in life. You Can Sign Up here!
Here are three of the things I know to be true about self-doubt:
Just because you think it, doesn’t make it so. Our mind is powerful and makes us believe that whatever it tells us is the truth. But, sometimes it tells us we’re not strong enough, we’re not good enough, we’ll never be able to do it, it’s too scary, or we might regret it.
This is NOT the truth so don’t fall for it!
It can be dangerous if you make life decisions based on these faulty beliefs about yourself. Your mind does everything in it’s power to keep you small. To keep your from taking risks. From being uncomfortable. From failing. Playing it safe is ok if a moving train, a shark, or financial ruin are involved, but it’s not ok if you’re trying to make the most of your one precious life.
Believe it or not, self-doubt is not always bad. I believe we should always have that twinge of, “holy shit what am I doing?” As long as we keep moving forward despite this feeling. This is what keeps us growing and learning. It means we are trying new things. Moving forward despite this self-doubt is a good thing because it means we are living!
Why I created the free course:
- I started to notice women around me letting their self-doubt hold them back. They weren’t recognizing how amazing and strong and capable they were because of the bullsh*t messages they were telling themselves.
- I had readers tell me they were stuck because they didn’t have the confidence to take a risk or try something new.
- I noticed the Imposter Syndrome strike fear in the hearts of capable people.
- I heard from women that were paralyzed with fear and insecurity, afraid of making a mistake or even worse, failing.
- I saw people not venturing out and trying something different because they were wrapped up in how every one else was doing it, not appreciating their own intrinsic gifts.
Something needed to be done. I want these women to see themselves through new eyes.
If any of this resonates with you, I’d love to have you check out my free course. You have nothing to lose except the limiting beliefs that keep you from living life on your terms.
