Everyone experiences doubt, some more than others. And whether it’s in the form of not being able to start up your next big idea, not reaching a personal goal you set, or simply missing a deadline at work, it’s important to recognize that doubt creeps in and freaks us all out.
Chances are you’ve heard of the book “The Four Hour Work Week,” but in case you haven’t it’s a simple but effective book by author Tim Ferriss to help you escape a 9-5 job, motivate you to live wherever your want, and achieve financial freedom. The book does all these things, but its biggest strength is pure motivation. Tim is a huge motivation because he built himself from the ground up and is now rumored to be worth nearly $100 million dollars!
He knows what it's like to experience doubt. Ultimately, the doubt distracts us from our goals or it may even stop us from starting something all together.
The dictionary describes doubt as, “a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction.” I just wanted to provide you with the definition so that you can better recognize it. Now I’m going to give you a few quotes to inspire you and tactics to identify that doubt and then turn it into action.
Often we find ourselves questioning everything perhaps because we see others around us achieving their dreams and we may not be exactly where we believe we’re supposed to be. The biggest thing to remember is that life doesn’t come in a one size fits all format.
Here's some motivation from Tim for the next time you're doubting yourself.
