Get Rid of Self-Doubt
If you’ve been watching or listening to “I HAVE TODAY with Diane Forster,” then you know we are doing a 6 Part Series called, “Change Your Language, Change Your Life” where I’m teaching you the TOP 6 Words You Need to Remove from Your Vocabulary and Which Words You Need to Be Using Instead in order to MANIFEST faster and to create MORE HAPPINESS!
The 4th Word is How to Replace DOUBT with DETERMINATION instead.
Let me ask you something…have you ever had an experience in your life where you were so determined to do or get something, that it didn’t matter what anyone else said or thought, you were not going to let anything or anyone stop you from your goal? That’s determination.
I remember when my former and I were trying to have a baby. After several months of nothing happening, followed up by testing, we discovered that I was the problem. I went in for a procedure, and when I woke up in the recovery room, my doctor told me that he did everything he could, but that I would not be able to have children…ever. He was such a wonderful man, and I could see how difficult it was for him to tell me this. As I stared back at him, my reply was, “Well, that is just NOT an option. I WILL have children. There has to be another way!” Six months later, I was pregnant, and I gave birth to full term, boy-girl twins 15 months after that hospital experience.
While my doctor did the best he could, his assessment to me was based on his experience and history…he had no comprehension or understanding of MY WILL. So, the message is this…
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t do…ever! Imagine if I listened to him that day and took his opinion to heart and never pursued my dream of having a baby? I am so grateful that I didn’t let doubt take over and remained determined about my dream.
Let me share with you 3 reasons why you need to Get Rid of Self-Doubt:
Reason 1: Understand that there are NO Mistakes…just Lessons Along the Way.
It took Thomas Edison 999 tries of the light bulb before he figured it out. As he stated, “I just figured out 999 ways how not to do it.” You won’t know what you don’t know unless you try and stay determined. That’s how we learn. That’s how we gain knowledge, wisdom and insight. So, remove the doubt out of anything and EVERYTHING you do, knowing that you cannot make a mistake! It took Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen 144 “no’s” before finally getting a “yes” to publish “Chicken Soup for the Soul” which has now sold over 500 million copies worldwide of the successful, inspiring book series. They didn’t have doubt. They operated from determination.
Reason 2: You Already Know Everything You Need to Know…You Just Need to Catch Up to the Knowing.
Think about when you were a baby just learning how to walk. You started out on your back, then rolled over, then crawled then pulled yourself up, then took that first wobbly step. Eventually, you took more steps until you were confidently walking. You were determined to do it. Nothing deterred you from your goal. With each fall, you would get back up, and you never doubted it!!! The ability for you to walk was always inside you…you just needed to catch up to that knowing. You had to go through the learning process with each of the phases that get you from your back to your feet.
This metaphor applies to everything in life. It doesn’t matter what you want to do…the ability to do it is “in” you. Therefore, there’s no reason to ever doubt! The only thing you need is your determination that you will figure it out. Because you will.
Reason 3: You Are Enough!…Just As You Are!
It’s interesting how challenging this is for so many people…they never feel like they’re enough. In my years’ of doing this work, I have discovered that self-doubt and self-worth are so closely tied together. When you don’t feel like enough, you doubt yourself. When you doubt yourself, it’s because you don’t feel X enough (ready enough, smart enough, capable enough, etc.) Here’s the deal…you get to want whatever you want…no limits, no judgement, no questions, and definitely no doubt! As Bob Proctor states, “WANT IS THE ONLY PREREQUISITE FOR MAKING A DECISION.” If you want something, know that you are worthy of it, that conditions in your life don’t need to change, and you are worthy of it “just because you want it!”
Know what you want, and be determined to go after it! Don’t give up on it! Be DETERMINED to get it! Don’t have DOUBT! Where there’s a will, there is ALWAYS a way! Anyone who tells you anything contrary to that is basing it on history. They don’t understand your will and YOUR DETERMINATION!
