The Purpose of Self-Doubt

SELF-DOUBT TELLS YOU WHAT YOU WANT 

On the other side of self-doubt is something you want to achieve. And the more overwhelming the self-doubt, the more important that thing is.

SELF-DOUBT LEADS TO SELF-ACCEPTANCE

When self-doubt leads you to the parts of yourself that you believe are not good enough, you get an opportunity to challenge and update these truths about yourself. 

With greater self-acceptance, you can bring more of yourself to the world. 

SELF-DOUBT CONNECTS YOU TO YOUR INNER RESOURCE 

“Doubt is not a pleasant condition (but certainty is absurd)”

The famous Voltaire quote sums up the reason that self-doubt is so unacceptable to us. Because it doesn’t feel good. Once you open the door to self-doubt, you open the door to uncertainty. And our biological response to uncertainty is to quickly find security. 

But when you learn to tolerate uncertainty,rather than denying it, you strengthen your inner resource. From this place, you find an unfailing source of inspiration for creative and innovative direction.
