It is my Achilles heel. My form of resistance. The way my upper limit is triggered (as per the book The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks – great read)
Doubt sucks. If I’m not careful and purposeful then doubt will sneak in and suck the wind out of my sails.
“That sounds nice but it is really possible?”
“What makes you think people want that from YOU?”
“You could try it but what if it doesn’t work?”
“Just because NAME did it doesn’t mean you can do it too”
A few years back I asked one of my mentors David Neagle how to get rid of doubt. (fear, worries, etc)
His answer was that we can’t get RID of doubt, rather we have to act in spite of it. We have to focus on what we want so that it becomes bigger than the doubt.
As the CEO of our business we have to wake up each day and make a decision – am I going to let doubt rule today?
This is what I aim to do each day. Am I perfect? Heck no! Many days doubt does sneak up but you better believe I don’t let it stop me.
