In my view doubt cancels all dreams and all positive actions you are taking towards your desired outcome. I see this showing up quite a lot with the entrepreneurs I work with so I want to bring it into your awareness, and this awareness may get you to change this behaviour or thoughts to more constructive ones. The colour associated with self-doubt is a pale slatey grey that actually sucks the energy out of you.
It usually occurs when we don’t get what we want. Self-doubt is something that nearly every entrepreneur I work with suffers from, because entrepreneurs are the face of their business. Their business is them and so if things don’t go according to plan then the side effect is self-doubt. As soon as I say ‘did you know that self-doubt cancels all dreams?’ they are hit with a realization, and they start to get it. You can be doing all the right things, the marketing, the Facebook ads, the big talks and all the other actions ‘on paper’ recommended to you but if you are doubting then it literally undoes all your hard work. Just like your website won’t work for you if you don’t have the right colours that represent the real you. It’s the same here. Self-doubt CANCELS! So next time you find yourself doubting change your thoughts to having.
You are actually doing a dis-service to yourself and to your clients. Common self-talk that comes up, are I am not worthy enough, am I cut out for this, do I deserve this, I am never going to have a successful business, frustration, overwhelming, feelings of being stuck. Self-doubt brings with it very shaky ground and here is why. As entrepreneurs we question ourselves A LOT. If we don’t get the clients we had hoped for we start questioning and driving our heads mad for answers. But if we focused on ‘what we give’, and that what we offer, and not care about how our numbers then we would be serving others better and ourselves as well. We are all great working for someone else and recommending others but when it comes to blowing our own trumpet and recommending our own services, we shy away. This is not the way to go because you are coming from a place of lack, and as the world and universal energies are all about abundance then you lose this connection as you are not aligned to this energy.
If this is happening for you I want you to try these few exercises:
So stop doubting and start believing in YOU, the Infinite Source of Possibilities and YOUR PURPOSE.
