doubt and declarations

It’s normal to occasionally doubt your abilities. 

We do this because we care deeply about doing well, and we care about the outcome — nothing to be ashamed about. 

If we were careless people, we wouldn’t have cause to doubt. 

When you find yourself questioning your abilities, countering with declarative statements can have a surprisingly positive effect. 

“Can I do this?”

I can do this.

“Am I good enough?”

I am good enough

Making bullish declarations like these isn’t about foolish and blind faith, it’s about giving yourself permission to succeed by uprooting the doubt that makes you tip-toe around and question every action you take. 

Replies to doubt and declarations
“The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process, is its own reward.”​
