Moving past self doubt and going for it anyway. Can I let you in on a little secret. I’ve always believed that we have a inner guidance that lets us know what we want to be doing in our life. And who it is we want to become. I know I did. It took a while for me to see it. Then I started to push it away because of the fear and all the self doubts started flowing in.
So if your anything like me. We tend to hold ourselves back from doing what we know will bring us true happiness, purpose and meaning to our life. That is the constant fear of our self not being good enough, even in our day to day . The self doubt is always there. We judge our self and set our mind into believing negative thoughts of what people might say. We begin to feel inadequate.
To be vulnerable. self doubt has been something I’ve always struggled with. Now I wanted to tech you the ways that I have dealt with self doubt and not let it take over my life completely. Because I really want this to be a heart to heart. And because I want you to push through the self doubt just as I did.
Why is it we experience self doubt. Moving past self doubt and going for it anyway.
For me I found self doubt came when I wanted to make changes in my life. Changes like being more healthier, a better job and a better me. Because I’ve always had this feeling that there is more to life for me than right now.
And we seem to have these doubts that we aren’t good enough to want a better life or deserving of it. And we don’t have what it takes to have a better life. Maybe your like me and think of every little thing that can possibly go wrong and not of anything that can possibly go right!
So why do we hold our self back?
We should all realize that every one of us in this world has a story. And that story has grounded the way to who we are today. But never dismiss the stories we tend to make up in our mind. I have found these stories can come from events that may have happened in the past. Maybe things other people have criticized us for.
Maybe you criticized yourself for not being beautiful enough, not smart enough or there is nothing that you are good at. Sound familiar? Then after a while we start to believe these things will be present for the rest of our life. Because of that these stories keep going around in our head. And we keep telling our self we are not good enough. But remember they are just stories.
And the amazing thing is we can rewrite those stories. The decision of who you want to be and what you want to do is your decision. Learn to trust yourself and keep a check on your mindset.

Trust in yourself. Moving past self doubt and going for it anyway.
This is the important initial step to getting past self doubt. And becoming a whole lot better at this trusting yourself thing. Because it’s important to trust the process you are going through right now. Trusting you intuition, and your emotions and your own personal journey.
I had to learn to trust I would get to exactly where I wanted to be. And I had no idea how I was going to get there.
And then yes, you will make mistakes. Because it is a fixed part of life. Making mistakes is how grow and evolve. Look at the amazing bright side. When we accept and learn form our mistakes we find out so much more about ourselves. Don’t believe those limiting beliefs your mind tells you. You are good enough. Trust your gut instincts and follow that. Finding your inner voice is a big help when learning to be more trusting of yourself. Check out my recent post for tips on how to find your inner voice http://www.kristimaree.com/finding-your-inner-voice-and-using-it/
Reevaluate your mindset if needed. Moving past self doubt and going for it.
Your mindset is everything. And the key to your success. But when you are connected to your power, you can take responsibility and go ahead and do those things that scare you anyway. Then you have to believe that you are worthy of those things you want out of life.
Because there is so much involved when it comes to your own confidence. It takes a lot of commitment .And the key point is your mindset. Always have strong awareness of what is happening in your mind. Look for any limiting beliefs and mindset blocks. So go ahead and tell that story a different way. The way it should be told. One of my inspirations Tony Robbins explains so powerfully here how to reprogram the mind and shift your mindset. Take a listen. I guarantee you will be totally inspired and educated.
Steady steady does it. Just take small steps.
When you are starting your journey remember to take one action move every day. We can sometimes (I know I do!) want to move so quickly and want the change we’re searching for right now. Therefore when taking it one step at a time you aren’t putting to much pressure on yourself with that thing that scares you.
So today I want you to choose one thing that will move you in the direction that you want to go past that fear. Because that one small step every day you take will help you move past that fear and doubt. And that someday will happen a lot sooner than you think.
