Embrace Challenging Periods in Your Life
We all wish that we perpetually felt like hot, badass rockstars in total control of our circumstances. But that’s not how life works. No matter who you are, you will hit road bumps. Whether you’re running a highly profitable business or enjoying great success in your personal life, at times, things just aren’t going to go the way you want them to.
When that happens, it’s natural for you to experience a little bit of self-doubt, or lose a little hope. You might start thinking that you aren’t really cut out for what you’re trying to achieve, or worse, that you don’t deserve the life that you have imagined for yourself.
“I’m not giving anybody anything new. I’m helping people find their inner power where it already exists.”
– Dana Pharant (18:38 – 18:46)
However, these trying times can be your biggest blessings if you learn how to use them to your advantage. Just like you need to lift weights if you want growth in your muscles, you have to overcome challenges in your business, or in your personal life, if you wish to grow and take things to the next level.
Three Tips to Overcome Self-doubt and Discover Your Inner Power
Embrace the Moment – Most likely, you’ve been through tough situations in your life which, in hindsight, you’ve realized were blessings in disguise. The real trick is to welcome challenges while you’re in that moment of difficulty. What new skills are you forced to learn, or which new connections do you have to make to overcome this road bump? If you can focus on the benefits instead of the bad stuff, you’ll be able to reveal more of your real inner power.
Doubt the Doubt – Self-doubt is a natural part of the process, especially if you’ve experienced something you perceived as a failure in the past. But you should doubt the self-doubt itself. Is it really giving you accurate feedback, or is it merely the monkey-mind gone wild? Are there things that you’ve done well in the past, or mistakes that you’ve learned from? This is where a good coach or therapist can be extremely valuable. They can help you uncover blocks in your own mind, and to remove the ceiling for what you will allow for yourself.
Ask the Right Questions – The questions you ask yourself play a critical role in the outcomes that you get. Maybe you’re not aware that you’re continually asking yourself why you can’t make more money, or why you can’t maintain a stable relationship. Your subconscious mind doesn’t discriminate, and it gives you the answers you’re looking for. So, it’ll bring you evidence to solidify your current self-limiting beliefs. Instead, ask yourself why you’re so good at inviting positive results. You’ll start finding reasons why you do deserve good things, and consequently, you’ll begin to attract them into your life.
“If you know what you should be doing, but something is holding you back, maybe there’s a deeper layer within you that needs to heal so you can overcome doubt and take that leap of faith.”

Remember, when you hit road bumps, it’s a clear sign that it’s time for you to level up. Embrace the challenge and look for the positives. It’s through your break downs that you’ll find your breakthroughs as you reveal your hottest, badass self.
