Even if you're a chronic worrier like me, there are strategies you can use to overcome self-doubt. Here are a few that I use everyday.
1. Start small. I'm a huge believer in micro-actions. By taking one small step everyday, you can accomplish big projects. For example, if you're a writer make time to write. For instance, I write 2,000 words everyday. Most of the writing isn't very good. But it's a start. I can edit that content for my book or blog posts.
Taking the time to start and finish a project can help you overcome self-doubt.
2. Open your mind and read a few good books. Right now I'm reading a fantastic book called The Element. It's full of tips, tools and stories that will inspire you to pursue your dreams.
3. Connect to your community. Volunteering benefits your community and you. It turns out that community-based work makes people very happy and it's one way to keep your self-doubt in perspective.
