Doubt starts as a teeny tiny seed of thought that can turn into a BIG derailment on our paths- but it doesn’t have to be that way.
We shared some of our experiences with doubt in Truthy Tuesday this week, along with you awesome readers, so for this week’s video we wanted to explore an alternative way to look at doubt- a way that lets your doubt become not an adversary, but an opportunity…
Doubt can open the door that helps you learn more about yourself, find alternative ways of doing something, or push yourself farther than you ever thought you could.
We like to shift perspectives around here, and recognizing that there’s also a healthier side to doubt, other than the plummet over the cliff into fear, anxiety and stuckness- makes it feel not so scary to confront anymore.
Watch our Maven Chat below about the healthier side of doubt with a cool analogy to help you see your doubt differently:
What do you think?
Can you see the healthier side to doubt?
Can you think of a time when your doubt has actually been helpful to you? In terms of having you re-assess things, or make a necessary, but difficult change?
Has your doubt ever spurred you to push yourself beyond your comfort zone, just to spite it?
We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
