Because you are trained to have doubts. Your Arch Nemesis (resistance) takes over and stops you from making a positive impact.
You need to listen to these fears, walk with them and still believe in your superpowers to make this world a better place.
When you stop believing in yourself, you stop dreaming.
We need you to dream big and make this world a better place.
You deserve to be happy and have a great career.
Let me say that again - You deserve to be happy and have a great career.
What do you do to build your confidence when you are feeling down?

Thanks for reminding all of us that we need to believe in ourselves. It doesn't say much for our culture that despite all the chatter about the importance of self-esteem, so many of us continue to doubt ourselves and the value of our gifts that could help make a positive difference in the world, or we have been told that it is "wrong" to draw attention to ourselves so we don't shine our lights (our wisdom, gifts, caring)into the world.
I've started keeping a list of the positive feedback I've received and achievements that have made a difference to others, and I read through those comments when the inner critic--the arch nemesis--is on the rampage. I also have an incredible circle of friends who are also committed to living their purpose in ways that make a positive difference in the world. I can't stress strongly enough the importance of surrounding yourself with truly supportive friends and individuals who can shine a light out there for us when we temporarily lose sight of our paths in a dark forest.
Hi Sue, That's a great tip. Too often we focus on the negative things people say about us instead of all the positive things. Studies show that people need at least 4 positive remarks to cancel out a negative remark.
Supportive friends are the cornerstone of every great career. That's why everyone should set up a Board of Advisers for their career.
Thanks for the great comment!
Nice imagery. We often know we are under attack, we look around and do not see the villain because we are the ones getting in our own way. Worse we look around and pick a villain. Someone to blame for our own limitations.
Purpose. My purpose as I have grown to build it is how I put the nemesis aside. When stalled I get going with 4 basic questions. What do I want to do? Why is this important? Who will gain from my effort? and lastly How do I get it done? When these answers align with my purpose it is right and provides energy to move.
Thank you for the challenge to post.
