How Do Wealth Creators Conquer Self-Doubt and Become More Confident?

Everyone has times in their life when they feel inadequate and incompetent, but some of us feel that way more often than others. Many people are so busy putting themselves down they fail to thrive in life. They stop trying to learn and better themselves. They become discouraged and depressed. 

Do you feel like you may be one of these people? 


Maybe your self-doubt stems from some negative experiences early in your life. For example, if people made fun of you when you were a child, you might doubt your abilities even today.

  • Traumatic experiences can cause a vicious cycle of self-doubt in your mind.
Parents, teachers, and other children can sometimes unwittingly say things that have a powerful impact for both good and bad. So, how do you turn things around and stop that nagging voice in your head that says you’ll never be good enough?
 
Here are some tactics to help you erase that doubt and become more confident:
 
Let Go of Negative Criticism of Yourself
 
This applies to both past and present. Don’t let a jerk of a boss ruin your day by simply adding his voice to the tape player in your head. Realize that he may be taking his anger out on someone else because of his own inadequacies. People’s negative attitudes speak volumes about them, not about you!
 
  • Stifle your tendency to criticize yourself. By agreeing with those who criticize you, you’re giving them all the power.
  • Pay no attention to that voice in your head that’s saying you’re going to fail. If you stop listening, it will get quieter and eventually disappear.
  • Reclaim your life by believing that you CAN succeed.
  • Surround yourself with supportive people who believe in you.
 
Prepare Yourself and Do Your Best
 
It’s not enough just to think positively; you have to actively pursue success as well. Visualizing your end goal can help you make the right choices, but no one can do the work except you. One way to overcome self-doubt is to write down your positive qualities.
 
  • Make a list of at least 5 good things about you. Every day when you wake up read the list. Reading aloud will also help you to believe the items you’ve listed.
     
The positive thinking will help prepare your mind to succeed, but there are other ways you can help yourself achieve your goals as well:
 
  • Set reasonable goals. Decide what you want to do within a set amount of time. Keep your goals realistic so you can meet them. If you set unrealistic goals that you can’t meet, you’ll quickly become discouraged. Start out small and get bigger with your dreams. Apply the Kaizen principle

  • Get busy. Inactive people easily become depressed. To avoid this unpleasant situation, immerse yourself in achieving your goals. Hard work will always pay off in the end.

  • Revel in your success. Self-doubters tend to think they don’t deserve to succeed. But you do! You deserve a reward for conquering your self-doubt and becoming more confident. You deserve to be honored for your hard work and perseverance. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
 
Just remember you can’t reach the top of a mountain in one giant leap; it takes many steps along the way to reach the peak in due time. The same is true of success and achieving your goals.
 
Taking baby steps and attaining many small successes will bring you the confidence to reach your dreams. In the meantime, sit back and enjoy the journey to becoming the self-assured person you know you can be. It’s a wild ride, but it’s well worth it in the end.
 
An excellent way to overcome self doubt is to do the Kaizen Challenge

Hi Hannes
Thank you for an interesting series of subjects
Please forgive the criticism - I have a grammar and english fetish
- "Concur" in your heading means "to agree" - your headline needs "Conquer" meaning "to overcome"
Thanks again
Kind Regards
Emile

Thanks Emile
I love positive criticism - it not only improves the quality of the Kaizen-Wealth website but also my English.
I made the change - difficult to be a “Boertjie” and trying to communicate with the world.
When I write or talk I have times when I am totally inadequate and incompetent in using the English language, this is the reason why I surround myself with my students who are supportive and are doing their best to help me.

Ek het baie getwyfel oor of ek die kursus moet aanpak of nie, die geld was skraps en ek sou dit sekerlik op ander maniere beter kon aangewend. Maar nadat ek ‘n paar maande uitgestel het, met net ‘n drukstuk in my dagboek-stelsel, het ek op laas oë toegeknyp en Read more...

For many years I have suspected that there must be an easier way. My whole family are very hard workers. Day after day my Dad would get up & go to work, just as his Dad had done for all of his life. The message that was passed down from generation to generation was “go to school, get good grades, study hard and go to university so you Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-08-07 When instinct seems to fail Last week I gave you an example of when instinct saves the day. How people who stay connected to their inner voice of truth so often get it right. But sometimes split-second decision-making goes wrong. How can that be? Example 2: Let’s look at the next example. The movie Crash is a very thoughtful movie, building on Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. The point is to show that racism is complex. It makes people who do not think of... Read more...
