The Benefits of CELEBRATING your Doubt!
What would you say is the most prevalent reason why people hold back on their dreams?
Let me tell you. It’s self-doubt.
It is that nagging voice that says, “You are not good enough, smart enough, important enough…” You fill in the blank.
I share about this topic often because it is the thing my clients struggle with the most.
What if self doubt is actually good news?
Here’s what I mean: when you have doubt about something that you have never done before, it means that you are pushing up against the edge of your knowing. You are entering new territory for yourself. And that is a very good thing.
Think about it, you have no doubt when it comes to doing everyday, mundane things like tying your shoes or riding a bike. Those simple tasks are so automatic for you now. There was a time when you didn’t know how to do either one of them. In fact, you were awkward and even fell a few times.
Now, you do them without even thinking about it. They are so in you.
Why this is important is because when you can identify something that you now know how to do that you didn’t know before, you see the evidence that you are capable of learning something new.
You also see that you survived the learning process to tell the story.
Here’s the other thing to realize. There is a force moving through you that is forever seeking a richer, freer expression by means of you. This is Life! Life wants you to bump up against your growing edge of the unknown so you can discover more of who you really are and of what you are really capable of doing.
When you face your doubt and learn to override it, you are answering Life’s call. You are acknowledging this amazing power moving through you that is bigger than any perceived limitation. Your “YES!” to your desire, even in the face of doubt, is you answering the call that Life has issued to you.
So, today when doubt surfaces around something that is brand new for you, celebrate it.
Acknowledge its invitation to you to discover more of your magnificence. Remind yourself of other times when you didn’t know how to do something but you learned. Know in this moment that as you accept the invitation that Life is issuing you, you will discover that you are truly connected to Power within you that is bigger than self doubt.
Then harness of all of this and get busy taking the next right actions required for your dream.
Share about the self doubt you are celebrating today and what it means for you in the comments or in our Ultimate Life Facebook group.
