"Feed your faith and doubt will starve to death."
Theres not a person on this earth who hasnt felt those unsettling pangs of doubt on occasion. Im sure you know how the story goes. Youre about to finally step out and make a positive impact, ready to take the plunge and make something exciting happen when all of a sudden you are overcome with an overwhelming sense of doubt.
And as the doubt begins creeping in, you start thinking to yourself, "Can I pull this off? Am I really ready right now?" Then doubt kicks into overdrive and you start thinking, "What if I mess up? What if Im not good enough to pull it off? What if Im not really ready?" What if, what if
what if. "If the Sun and Moon should ever doubt, they'd immediately go out."
When you begin to lose faith in yourself and your God given abilities you open the door to a world of doubt. And thats a door thats much better left closed and locked behind you. Look, we all have these feelings from time to time. Its only natural. The key is how you respond to these feelings of doubt.
If you constantly give in and give up, youll never be able to conquer those doubts that hold you down and hold you back. But when you learn to overcome these feelings of doubts, understanding that they are only FEELINGS and nothing more, youll be well on your way to living the life you deserve.
"Doubt can only be removed by action."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Instead of allowing doubt an open invitation to run your life, why not assume control by shifting into high gear whenever doubt comes knocking? Rather than cowering or running for cover, you need to give those lingering doubts a boot and charge straight ahead without a doubt!
Theres no doubt about it, sitting around and dilly-dallying plays right into doubts mitts. The one and only way to defeat your doubts is to run right at them and then right over them.
That means doing whatever it is that you truly want to do in life and doing it right now. No second guessing, no hemming and hawing. And last but certainly not least doing it without a doubt.
"It is easier to believe than to doubt."
Everett D. Martin
Like it or not, these feelings of doubt will always be around. But that doesn't mean you need to pay them any mind. Once you realize that doubt will constantly attempt to undermine your drive and upset your momentum if allowed to do so, you'll be well equipped to withstand anything and everything doubt tosses your way.
It's time to live life on your terms, filling each day with all of the energy, enthusiasm and excitement you can handle. When you stop doubting yourself and start believing, I mean really believing, that you do have what it takes to win, you're going to start winning and winning a lot.
The Bottom Line: When you finally stop doubting yourself once and for all, that magnificent future you hold deep down in your heart is no longer in doubt.
