self-doubt is a good mechanism in the human experience it’s when it stops you there’s a problem you know and so the goal is to explore it and the goal is to realize that it should be a cue for you to learn and ask for help I’m curious why do influencers or anyone deal with self-doubt when you’ve achieved a lot of success why does self-doubt creep in when you’re just starting why is self-doubt there and how do we eliminate self-doubt yeah self-doubt is one of the first signals that you deeply want to grow hmm and most people start with self-doubt being a bad thing I’m like oh it’s a signal saying you know what I’m not yet enough to be able to do that thing I want to do mm-hmm and that’s okay that’s a great acknowledgement like I hope everybody starts every new endeavor doubting their capabilities doubting their competency doubting if they know how to do it the difference is successful people and unsuccessful people and the way they deal with the doubt like self-doubt for if you’re like struggling and you’re always unsuccessful is because self-doubt is stopping you successful people they have the same doubt but they’re exploring it they’re like oh and they’re nodding you know what that’s true I don’t yet have the capabilities to do that so agenda item GoGet capabilities to do that they don’t let the doubt stop them it’s when doubt delays you or divides you from other people or destroys your progress that it’s a problem yeah but it’s a good cue tap calm you know because if it never comes up you never say I don’t know or you’ll never say I don’t know how to do that or you’ll never raise your hand for help so self-doubt is a good mechanism in the human experience it’s when it stops you there’s a problem no and so the goal is to explore it and the goal is to realize that it should be a cue for you to learn and ask for help and what most you still burn you know what they do they get self-doubt and they go silent but in the silence of self-doubt that’s where the suffering is when you speak it and you share it say hey Lewis um I’m not do this podcast man I’ve never done something like this no clue what I’m doing I do this how do you think through it could you coach me and mentor me that is a proactive way to me the self-doubt and then overcome it but if I go silent with it that’s where the suffering and the stopping happen
According to Brendon Burchard, self-doubt is one of the first signals that you deeply want to grow. He is quoted as saying, “If you’re struggling with self-doubt, remind yourself of all the times you overcame what you did not know.”
