The Purpose of Self-Doubt
Self-doubt is a powerful force, it has the power to overwhelm you and keep you stuck.
But how many times have you attempted to conquer your self-doubt for good, only to have it creep back in each time you’re facing up to a new challenge?
Eckhart Tolle says; “Whatever you fight, you strengthen”.
Battling your self-doubt with relentless positivity is only serving to strengthen it.
Self-doubt becomes an overwhelmingly negative experience that imposes unrealistically high expectations upon you and stops you expressing your true voice. You end up feeling in constant competition with everyone around you and that you have to work that bit harder just to be on a level.
The result is a self-defeating and exhausting cycle of feeling held-back and striving for more; maybe even losing a little bit more of yourself each time you try to overcome it.
There is another way.
Eckhart Tolle also says; “Whatever you expose to the light, becomes the light”.
When you learn to embrace your self-doubt and bring it into the light, you can give it a purpose in your life. Self-doubt becomes a powerful ally, a motivational force and a solid, sustainable route to growth.
Self-doubt has been my life-long companion. I tried all the methods to crush it, conquer it, overcome it but it always came back. I wondered if I was trying to cut away an important part of myself.
So, I decided to try a different approach and to consider if self-doubt may have a purpose.
I embarked upon a year long study with case study clients to explore that question. I found that self-doubt does indeed have an important and powerful purpose.
I have created a coaching model with the aim of embracing self-doubt and making it a powerful ally and a motivational force that can help you to grow.
I have now stopped recruiting for the free of charge coaching trials and I am not taking on any more clients until I have completed the book.
However, if you would like to apply for one-to-one coaching once I launch the book and coaching model, please complete the questionnaire by following the link below.
