Moving Beyond Doubt
Doubt is a powerful emotion. It will stop you dead in your tracks from completing important tasks. It's the energy behind procrastination, avoidance, and overwhelm. It's what creates the piles of paper, the overflowing laundry basket, the cluttered attic or garage; doubt blocks your ability to make clear decisions about moving forward.
When you wait for the "perfect" time or situation to get something done doubt is present. Zig Ziglar says, "Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly." He means that the first time you do something will never look like the twelfth time you do something, so do it now.
You can recognize that doubt is present by tuning in to your body. Doubt is very heavy energy as opposed to the lightness you experience when you hear your favorite song on the radio. Doubt sets up a struggle and puts you at a disadvantage. When you feel the heaviness of doubt the only course of action is to act! When you take the very first step and then the next and the next, before you know it you have accomplished the task. It's so simple when you step back and get a fresh perspective. You have the power and choice to do that every time. You don't need to be a victim of your projects and tasks.
Learn to doubt the doubt. Move beyond doubt by recognizing it, expressing it, and choosing to "look it in the eye". Choose to put yourself at an advantage by connecting with your inner wisdom and allowing that energy to guide you forward. Trust that you have everything you need to feel accomplished, free and successful!
Love To You,
