I consider myself to be a very motivated person. I have goals both big and small… Ok big goals might be downplaying them a bit. I have extremely lofty goals! If there is one thing that I have realized in my life, about the pursuit of what I love and trying to accomplish goals is…Every person, no matter how motivated and driven or goal orientated they may be experiences doubt. Whether it be self doubt, doubt about their path, their goals, their success. Doubt some how always creeps in and plagues our minds even if it is just for a brief second.
I used to think that doubt was negative, that some how it was a prediction of the future or the outcome of whatever I was working on. But one morning I woke up and decided that I was going to turn my doubt into a positive. I was going to use it as a driving force to push me forward. Because no one said doubt has to be negative… When I doubt myself I see that as an opportunity to dive deeper within myself. Figure out where the doubt is coming from and then addressing it head on. It is an opportunity for growth! See we have two options. We can either let the doubt slowly, or maybe not so slowly, take us over crippling our momentum and limit us in all of our pursuits. Or we can use it as additional motivation, to prove to ourselves first and foremost that we are capable of rising above our biggest source of resistance, ourselves, our doubt and succeed. And man let me tell you, some of my greatest moments were the direct result of some of my biggest doubts!
