How to Combat Doubt

Don’t let doubt stop you from success and pursuing your goals! 

How can you eliminate self-limiting beliefs, build your confidence, and move forward with greater clarity and confidence? You will boost your ability to overcome your doubts and accomplish your goals if you: 

Arm Yourself with Knowledge. 

Do research before taking any major action. You work hard for your money; you deserve to spend it wisely! Your time is as precious as your income: when you feel doubtful that a certain step or option is right for you, consult with a skilled, reliable source. The experienced mentors in your support network will likely be more than happy to share what has and has not worked for them along their paths to success. Gathering information will help you feel confident that you are making the best choice for you. 

Plan Ahead. 

The more you know, the better you can identify and prepare for potential outcomes. Gather information and create contingency plans for scenarios and outcomes that leave you feeling paralyzed and doubtful. Your plans will enable you to pivot more effectively during unexpected, expected, and worst-case scenarios.

Don’t Avoid New & Uncomfortable Moments. 

The best way to overcome doubt in yourself is to tackle the roots of your self-doubt. For example, if you think you are not a strong public speaker, instead of shying away from this, push yourself to give presentations to others. You don’t have to start with a full auditorium! Begin with a small audience for practice. You can’t get better at something if you don’t spend time practicing that particular skill or habit. Experience and continual improvement will help you work through your insecurities and find your strengths. A commitment toward lifelong learning will help you push through your doubts, take action, and absorb meaningful lessons with each stride.

Make Connecting a Habit. 

Struggling with self-doubt? Reach out to trusted family, friends, or a respected mentor. Give yourself time to connect with the people in your network. It’s called your “support” network for a reason! Allow your experienced mentors to help you identify when your doubts are keeping you from taking meaningful actions. Staying in touch with your network will help you remain positive and remind you of your accomplishments.
