Ten Ways to Overcome Self-Doubt & Fear
by Simma Lieberman

IF YOUR SELF-DOUBTS AND FEARS STOP YOU FROM GETTING THINGS DONE, HERE ARE SOME TECHNIQUES AND PROCESSES THAT CAN HELP YOU BREAK THROUGH THEM.

    1. Make a list of your fears. Only by admitting that they exist can you seek solutions.
    2. Write down how these fears affect your life.
    3. Become aware of the voices in your head and write down those negative messages.
    4. Start building a support system of friends and eliminate people from your life who foster feelings of negativity.
    5. Join a support group of people who have similar issues.
    6. Change each negative message to one that is affirming and constructive.
    7. Read books that help you feel better about yourself.
    8. Be aware of your past, and be willing to let go of it.
    9. List your goals and the actions you need to achieve them.
    10. Take one of those actions every day. Each time you do something that brings you closer to achieving your goals you will feel better about yourself.

When fears and self-doubts come back, and they still do, I break through them by using the tools and skills I've learned and now teach. They work.
