Do you doubt yourself?

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Do you ever have a plan in mind but then afraid of going through it because you’re afraid that your actions will lead to failure?

Do you make excuses completing a project because you’re scared of the criticisms people might have on the finish product?

Do you ever procrastinate just because you’re not sure what the end result might be?

Do you ever wonder how come the others seem so confident?
Do you ever wonder how artists manage to capture an emotion or an event?
Do you ever wonder how some people are living their dreams?

Are you hang-up on the “everything happens for a reason” that you postpone doing anything because stuff will happen anyway? The road will take you there somehow?

The sun sets only to rise again the next day, so why hurry?

Anything important always takes time, so you have to make time to accomplish the task.
You see, if you really think it’s that important, you’ll find ways to make it a priority and make time for it!

If you feel some sense of self-doubt, recognizing that you have doubts is the first step in conquering it.

Next thing to do is to remember the things you’ve accomplished before. You have to find ways to make yourself feel good again. If you can’t do it yourself, ask a friend or a family member. They are always ready to be your cheer leader. Sometimes, all you need is a little boost to conquer that self-doubt.

I've been celebrating my coming birthday since last week.
I guess it's the silver anniversary of my 21st birthday, that's why I decided it will be a month-long celebration (hehehe)

So have confidence, live life, be happy, be thankful, take time to reflect, and make sure you celebrate any little accomplishments you’ve earned. Every little thing counts! (As my 9yo says, "Every gesture deserves a medal!)

So high-five to all of you and start this moment feeling good and motivated.

Enjoy your summer and feel good :-)
