Have you ever felt so much doubt in yourself that you felt paralyzed by it? Maybe you doubt your ability to lose weight, or maybe you doubt your ability to ever have a large savings account. Perhaps you doubt your ability to have your dream career or a great relationship with your significant other. Maybe you doubt your faith or you doubt your ability to be a good friend.
We all have doubts, but it is what you do with your doubts that defines your character.
The past few months I have been trapped in what seems to be a never ending cycle of doubting myself. I am grateful for those moments because they have brought about great moments of reflection for myself and I have been able to tune in to some deep rooted subconscious thoughts I have about myself and others. I am also grateful for those moments of doubts because it led me to an amazing book called – Creating Affluence: The A-to-Z Steps to a Richer Life by Deepak Chopra. This book is filled with inspirational messages and positive affirmations in order to help up us become our best self.
The very first affirmation of the book is “All Things Possible” and in order to remind myself of this belief I have printed out this Deepak Chopra inspired printable and put it above my computer so every time I sit down to design or work on a set of images or create goals I have a simple reminder that I can achieve my goals because all things are possible. I have even printed out a smaller version of this and placed it on my treadmill as a small reminder to keep pushing and not quit running when I really would just love to curl up in my bed with a book to read instead.
I still fall into the traps of self doubt but having this visual reminder has really helped to pull me out of that funk faster than without it. If you struggle with a lack of faith or self doubt I encourage you to purchase this printable, frame it and place it in a spot where you will be reminded every day that truly all things are possible!
I’m a firm believer that we can all learn from each other so I would love for you to comment and share what you do to combat those moments of self-doubt.
