  • How to overcome self-doubt?

    A lot of people in today's world struggle with self-doubt. There is an ever-growing problem with depression and anxiety as well.

    It seems we have set bars too high for ourselves and we just don't see the point of even trying to reach them anymore.

    How does one overcome self-doubt?

    I think a lot of self doubt comes from comparing ourselves with others. when i stopped comparing my own achievements to everybody elses, they seemed greater and as a result my self doubt diminished and my confidence grew.

      I agree with this completely. I find myself doing this a lot and what ends up happening is that I am just unhappy. I always find myself wanting more and I just can't be happy in the moment.

        Identifying the voice of the ego is key, I believe. It's the voice in the back of our heads that keep telling us "we are no good" or "lack value", and this voice is seemingly what we might call semi-autonomous. The ego is a big subject of course, but beginning to observe one self and one's own thoughts is the first step.

          We all have a voice in our heads that tells us we aren't good enough and we will fail. Some people listen to this voice, others ignore it, and then some (though few) set out to prove it wrong.

          Work on proving your doubts wrong.

            Stop trying to measure up to others. It doesn't matter if your neighbor has a bigger house or a nicer car, you can still be happy with what you have. Stay focused on your own path and remember that some with do better and some will do worse, and that's okay.

              This is not easy but if you are surrounded with people who are positive about life, then you will become positive too, this will enable you to overcome self-doubt.
              Glad i have chosen the right type of friends.
