20 Ways to Overcome Doubts

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.” ~ Pema Chodron



1. Think, “In a thousand years who’s going to care?” 

2. Focus on the good in your life, reflect on your past achievements, and look to your mentors and all they have achieved.

3. Tell yourself, “If I don’t try then I’ll never know. Don’t doubt yourself. You are a perfect example of talent and beauty.”

4. My mantra for this year: My abilities will always outweigh my doubts. The moment when I think I can’t is the moment that I can.”

5. The moment you feel it creeping in, it’s time to act. Get involved and let experience prove you wrong.

6. Acknowledge them but don’t invest in them. Then move on.

7. Ask where the doubt stems from. Is it your intuitive self or your fearful self? Ask that question and listen to the very first thought that comes into your head. Believe that one.

8. When in doubt, zoom out. If you doubt all the time, you need to zoom out to the big picture.

9. Ask yourself, “What will happen if I doubt this doubt?”

10. What’s the worst that could happen if you do what you feel doubtful about? Is that something you can deal with? Then do it! Most of our worries are a waste of time. What will happen, will happen.

11. Put one foot in front of the other and keep going.

12. Learn to live with them comfortably.
