I listened to it on and off until 2018 when I realize that the thing I needed the most to help in my goals and my life was my confidence. I have a tendency to be very hard on myself when I make a mistake. The Confidence Podcast has helped me believe in myself and see that God has a great purpose for me despite my shortcomings. I stand taller now. THE 5 SNEAKY THINGS ABOUT SELF-DOUBT THAT ARE WRECKING YOU Self-doubt makes you tip-toe towards what you want Self-doubt swirls around the comparison spiral Self-doubt creates stories that don't exist Self-doubt squashes your ability to reach your full potential Self-doubt keeps the doors to adventure, change and exploration closed off and locked. Keeps you from sharing your passions with the people you love Keeps you from exploring your beliefs and your limits, for fear that you might be wrong and embarrassed that you were wrong. Or for fear of offending someone else. THE ANTIDOTE TO SELF-DOUBT An obsession with belief. Note: belief is more uncomfortable than self-doubt. Self-doubt it easy. It is natural. It doesn't require anything of us or from us. Belief requires faith - in ourselves and in above. Said differently, the antidote to self-doubt is a willingness to accept discomfort and uncertainty, because in many ways, that is what belief actually is. Practice believing. Believe you can change your attitude. Believe you are doing better than you think. Believe that a bad day doesn't define you (ice skating example) Believe that your past performance doesn't narrate your future one Believe that there is always something to be analyzed and learned, nothing is wasted Believe that you can believe better than ever before. THREE SOLUTIONS TO SILENCING SELF-DOUBT Become a student of go-getters and dreamers. Get obsessed with the positive points of failure. Put yourself around other people who are choosing to think and live differently FINALLY, SELF-DOUBT FESTERS IN "NOT ENOUGHNESS" MINDSET Overcome that mindset with mantras that keep you in the present. I choose peace, not pressure. I choose kindness, not criticism. I choose belief, not fear. I choose gratitude, not grumbling. I choose meaning, not pleasing. I close moments, not more.
