Self-doubt is something we all face from time to time. From our work and relationships to what the future holds, we question if we're really headed in the right direction. Doubt isn't necessarily a bad thing, but learning how to manage it allows us to change how we view life.
Adjust your mindset. If we dive into doubtful thoughts with a negative mindset, we're not doing ourselves any favors. When we doubt certain areas of our life, we need to be rational rather than emotional. A certain amount of self-doubt is healthy to evaluate where we are, but we need to look at our life objectively instead of being in a state of panic.
Ask questions. When we're in deep thought, we need to ask ourselves the right questions. These questions need to be thought out and straight forward. Many of us have a tendency to be too radical with our questions and that almost never helps our situation. Asking simple questions and finding rational solutions is what moves us forward.
Face your fears. Doubt can show itself in place of fear. When we're fearful, we become doubtful. The best way to overcome this doubt is to face our fears. This won't be easy and it will take a lot out of us mentally, but climbing the fence of hardship is the surest way to get to the other side.
It's completely normal to have doubt. Everyone we know has and still faces doubt. Doubt is necessary for us to question ourselves and the decisions we make, but overthinking and investing too much emotion is when doubt becomes a burden. Facing ourselves head on and looking at our life in third person is the best way to see our situations for what they are.
You are bigger than your self-doubt. Remind yourself of that each and every day." -Caroline Ghosn
