Illustration and Topic Idea by: Charles Clark
They say that your greatest enemy is yourself.
What you think about yourself could greatly affect the things that you could do, whether positively or negatively.
Example, a certain level of self-criticism can be a source of motivation to be a better version of yourself, but doing it too much could affect your confidence. This leads to self-doubt, where in you lack confidence in the things that you could do.
Here's a list of pieces of advice to conquer self-doubt whenever you encounter it.
STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS.
Let me tell you right off the bat that we all each have a path that we are taking. Our progress would not be the same as others.
Don't let the accomplishments of others be the basis of your own success.
DON'T MIND WHAT OTHERS ARE THINKING OF YOU.
Sometimes, we value the opinions of others as we are looking for validations from them. We are tailoring our movements to get the validation that we want.
We must let go of everyone else's opinion, as this will limit the potential things that we could do. Just do your thing and get that bread!
DON'T BE AFRAID TO MAKE MISTAKES.
Failure will always be a part of the process.
This is where we learn and improve our own abilities. Always charge to experience and begin again.
ESTABLISH YOUR OWN SUPPORT SYSTEM.
There are times that we will have our bad days, and we need some reassurance from other people.
Your support system will do the job of telling you that you are doing fine, to keep you going on your journey.
Nurture these kind of relationships and draw strength, positive energy, and confidence from them.
