How To Beat Self-Doubt, To Become Your Own SUPER HERO

One of the most limiting things a person can experience in this life is self-doubt. It has the ability to keep you feeling locked away in a prison of your own insecurities. It will suffocate your ability to explore and be free to engage with opportunities or adventures. It will hold you back from ever achieving the things that you really want to be or do.

I have personally met people who even gave up on wanting anything at all, due to having such a high level of self-doubt. Their insecurities had escalated to such a point over the course of their life, to where they eventually gave up on even considering that they had any level of freedom, regarding their own choices.
This is a terrible place to find ourselves in and it causes a person to live a life that has been massively limited. Fortunately, though, with a little work and the right amount of determination there is something that we can do to conquer this.

Dominating Doubt
Doubt itself, by its very nature is a negative. It is something that denounces and turns down any thoughts of positive or action inspiring movement. If left unchecked, doubt becomes a mindset that keeps a person completely closed off from the world of positive inspiration and it keeps a person confined to a self-centered destructive ego.

In order to dominate doubt we must first desire to do so. If we do not have the desire to at least investigate the ability to overcome doubt, then there is truly no hope for us.

A person who is happy to live in a world of doubt is like a cancer that will infect and overcome anyone who has even a shred of positivity to express, like a black hole, they consume all light, and there is no hope of it ever being better in return.

Someone who has decided to overcome doubt though is like a black hole that has decided to try to stop sucking in everything and instead has chosen to learn how to produce and create a little light, that will grow into a larger to surround all the people and things in their lives.

Without having made the choice to do this, without having personally decided that they want to become more positive, more inspiring and more encouraging, a person has no hope of ever conquering their own self-doubt.

The Argument Of Doubt
The main argument that people offer to encourage their own self-doubt is that they have either never been able to, or never witnessed something happen. For example, if you try to encourage a person to become a confident public speaker and they harbor massive amounts of internal self-doubt, they will argue that they have never been able to speak confidently in public before and so they just think that from their own point of view, it cannot be done.

Another person who doubts the ability of someone to come up with some kind of new and enlightening invention doubts it because he has never seen it done before and therefore thinks it simply cannot be done. In all cases of self-doubt, a person is living with a mindset that has experienced great limitation somewhere in the past. Therefore, when we know this, we can implement strategies to conquer and eventually destroy these specific doubts. How do we do this?

Creationism
What I am talking about is a form of creationism that is completely and intimately personal. It is inspirational, encouraging, motivating, it is creating and producing and freeing. It is everything that self-doubt is not.

This works for all kinds of self-doubt and insecurity because it has the effect of contradicting and opposing every form that self-doubt or insecurity takes. We intimately prove the self-doubting limitation wrong, and eventually the mind learns a newer and more positive way of thinking about things, because it has witnessed firsthand the undoing of every single one of its limiting, doubting thoughts.

In order to do this we must either show or create a case for the opposite. Our minds need proof. Show yourself the opposite of your own self-doubt. Investigate and encourage yourself to try your very best to achieve, to witness or experience the very thing that your mind doubts.

Commit yourself to the challenge of proving every single one of your doubts wrong and if you can do this, you will slowly re-program your mind to be able to achieve anything that you could possibly want to achieve.

Conquer the limitations of your doubts and you become a purely positive, inspirational, creative force of life on this planet Earth.

Sit with your doubting mind however, and you will begin to fester in a world of negativity, opposition, and argument for all things limiting. I know which path I would rather choose.

Now the choice is up to you. Either become your own super hero and move forward by following your dreams or sit on the wayside, becoming a large puddle of self-doubt.

Don’t Let Stress Get You Down

Don’t Let The Stress of Building A New Life Get You Down

Most of us have a certain amount of stress in our lives, everyday. For the times that it increases and causes harm to our own well being or the well being of the people we love, try a couple of these.

[1] Buy yourself or someone you care about, a bunch of colorful flowers. Go to the flower shop and take your time in choosing the right one. Just the time spent in the choosing of the flowers will lower your blood pressure and calm your chain of thought.

[2] Need more time for your mind to settle and your body to relax. Go to a movie matinee or an off-off-off Broadway Theater show. Make it something silly, light or romantic. Cry for the hero, as he looses his girl, then cheer when he finds her again. Use all those pent up emotions. You will come out relieved and calmer.

[3] Pretend you are new in town and go see the new park by the lake. Walk it’s winding paths, feed a few ducks, stop and talk to the people fishing. Smile at the walkers and ground keepers. Do a few minutes of stretch exercises. Let your body know you are thinking about it.

[4] Move Baby Move. Dust off the old record player [showing my age here], put on the fastest song you know and move to the music. Lift your arms, click those heels and dance, dance, dance. You do not have to be a great dancer to move your body to the rhythm, just move. Exercise releases endorphins, which make us feel better. Soon you will be giggling and laughing, ready to face the world.

[5] Go to a hotel for the night. Go alone or take someone special with you. Let someone else make the bed, cook and wash the dishes. Cozy down into the pillows with a good book or watch an old Marx Brothers black and white movie on the cable channel.

Come morning you will be ready to sparkle and shine again. Back to building your new online life, creating new ways to reinvent the wheel and dazzle all of those around you.
