Never Doubt Yourself

Published on 13 May 2024 at 00:00

We all experience doubt sometimes, and doubt can lead to making a mistake or not taking on an opportunity. Every one of us can do amazing things in life. Discouragement can lead to doubting oneself, especially when it comes from those closest to you. Often the lack of motivation creates self-doubt, where you are likely not willing to take initiative to achieve your goals. Even if you fail, don't give up and try again, until you can and will succeed. Doubt will question your actions and intentions, and if it pertains to your well-being and safety, then trust your intuition and instincts. Never hesitate to do what is right, since it helps sustain a righteous path in life. Your wishes and dreams may not materialize immediately, it takes time and effort to achieve them. Remember, doubt can derail your journey, so why give in to that? It is ok to question your actions and postulate the directions you take in life. Sometimes a certain level of doubt can be helpful, then again always trust your guarded judgment. 

“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”

 - William Shakespeare

“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”

- Sylvia Plath

“If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.”

 - Vincent Willem van Gogh

 “Don’t let others tell you what you can’t do. Don't let the limitations of others limit your vision. If you can remove your self-doubt and believe in yourself, you can achieve what you never thought possible.”

- Roy T. Bennett

Never doubt yourself regardless of what career path or education you undertake. Make sure you work hard, with sheer dedication and the faith to believe in yourselves. You can accomplish anything when you set your mind and focus on it. Keep in mind it is very important to choose your friends wisely and don't let anyone discourage you, unless it is for the right reasons, like when it pertains to your well-being and safety. Make sure you are a positive influence on them, and them on you. If you have goals and dreams, pursue them. Don't ever underestimate yourself.  Your possibilities are endless. Just don't wait for the opportunity to come to you, get out there and find it. Make it happen for yourself and you will have no regrets. If you make mistakes or face disappointments, that's ok, learn from it and keep moving forward.

"Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. "

- Suzy Kassem

"Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself. Believe in yourself, your abilities and your own potential. Never let self-doubt hold you captive. You are worthy of all that you dream of and hope for."

- Roy T. Bennett

"Nothing restricts your success more than your limiting self-beliefs and fears."

 "Let doubt run wild in your life! Doubt your doubts, doubt your fears, doubt your limitations! Just never doubt yourself."

- Ray A. Davis

"To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation."

– Yann Martel

Never discourage potential however insignificant it may seem to you. Supporting growth and potential whether it is in a child or an adult will always result in success. We all have something to offer, and I sincerely believe that regardless of our individual educational, professional pursuits, and including wealth or lack of wealth, we all can truly make a difference in our society no matter where in this world we may live. Many of us can do amazing things in life, but some seldom capitalize on our abilities. At times one has to be an optimist at heart and a realist when it matters the most. When there is so much uncertainty in our world, it is always good to be hopeful, yet remain strong and grounded in the choices you make. Have the faith to believe in yourself. The strength to stand the test of time, and the courage to follow through. It is important not to doubt yourself regardless of how challenging life gets. The moment you begin to doubt yourself, you will fail to accomplish anything in life.

"Strong people never doubt their capabilities. They struggle hard but never give up the chase to achieve their dreams!"

- Avijeet Das

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

- Dale Carnegie 

“I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I'm like, 'My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don't have it. I just want to chill.' We all have self-doubt. You don't deny it, but you also don't capitulate to it. You embrace it.” - Kobe Bryant

 "Just believe in yourself. Even if you don’t, pretend you do, and at some point, you will.” - Venus Williams
