What’s up everyone and welcome back to Mental Sweat Monday, I’m Hannah Huesman.
We all have days of doubt and they are often not the most fun days because no one wants to feel incapable of doing something. Our natural tendency is to be ashamed, shy away from it and don’t let anyone see.
But what if we started shifting how we perceive doubt? What if instead of ‘there’s no way I’m going to be able to do this’ we say ‘this is going to be really hard, but if I can learn this, dang I’ll be good?’
Or instead of ‘I don’t want people to know I can’t do this’ we say ‘check out what I’m working on so that I can be better.’
Self-doubt is you acknowledging that you know how difficult your job is and that’s a good thing. It means you aren’t just doing something that everyone can do. Shouldn’t we run towards that doubt feeling?
By running away from doubt, you’re giving power to those doubts. By running towards doubt, you’re giving power to yourself.
