Many targets of bullying are filled with self-doubt. However, it isn’t only targets of bullying that suffer this malady. Self-doubt ranks right up there with fear. It’s a close second to it as it kills your dreams and causes you to live in mediocrity. Therefore, fear and self-doubt are the catalysts to life-failure. I don’t want this to happen to you.
So, how do we get rid of self-doubt? And how do we bravely work on our goals and dreams and ultimately, achieve success?
It starts in the mind.
1. Remember how far you’ve come.
2. Remember the battles you’ve fought and won.
3. Remember the fears you’ve faced and overcome.
4. Remember all the bullies and mean people you’ve overcome.
5. Remember all the hurts you’ve come back from.
6. Remember all the things you’ve accomplished- even the tiniest of wins you’ve scored.
Understand that we all come to roadblocks and hit brick walls. We all have our down times and, sadly, sometimes those bumps in the road can cause us to doubt ourselves.
Hey! I just hit mine in the last month and had to take a rest! Yes! Me- the blogger my friend Kym Moore and a few other bloggers like to call “The Energizer Bunny!” But even the Energizer Bunny needs to stop and recharge every now and then.
Again, we all- even the best of us, have periods when we doubt ourselves. The trick is to get up, dust yourself off, and keep pushing on. Rest when you must. And when you rest, take all the time you need to recover. But don’t you dare give into self-doubt and quit.
As mentioned earlier, we all have times when we self-doubt. The difference between those who succeed and those who fail is whether they give up or keep going.
With knowledge comes empowerment!
