You’re already an amazing person, but it’s easy to forget that sometimes. In this post, I’m going to share an incredible technique with you that will stop you doubting yourself ever again!
Doubting yourself is something that happens to all of us, no matter how accomplished we are.
It’s easy to let your mind spin out of control when you’re looking at the daunting task of achieving something great. And it’s not just about what you’re trying to do. You can be doubting yourself about everything from your ability to get a good night’s sleep to your ability to leave the house without knowing what you’re going to wear. (Trust me on this one.)
But there’s an easy way to stop you doubting yourself: review your achievements. It sounds simple, but it works!
When you’ve been working hard on a goal and have made progress toward it, take a moment to reflect on what you’ve done so far. What have you done well? What haven’t you done well? How has this affected your life? Do any challenges remain? If so, how can you overcome them?
Once you’ve reviewed these things, take a deep breath and keep going—you’ll feel more confident in your ability to move forward than ever before.
The other way is by reviewing your achievements. By “reviewing,” I mean literally looking back on what you’ve done and reflecting on your growth over time.
Reviewing your achievements will help you stay grounded in reality and will stop you doubting yourself as much as possible. Even if you only review your achievements once a day, it’s going to make a huge difference.
You know all those times you look back on your life and think, “Wow, I’m so proud of what I’ve done!”? Yeah, I don’t either. But when you sit down to review your achievements regularly, you can start to see them as part of who you are—and that’s when they start to feel more like a part of your identity rather than just a string of accomplishments.
When you have a record of the things you’ve done in life, it can be really easy to take them for granted. And it can be hard to see yourself as someone who’s accomplished anything at all. That’s why reviewing your achievements can help ground you in the fact that yes: You’ve done great things! You’re amazing! And there’s no reason not to believe that again tomorrow.
When you’re feeling like you’ve got nothing to show for the day, it can be hard to remember the things you’ve accomplished.
That’s why it’s important to take a moment every once in a while to review your achievements—and not just the big stuff. It could be as simple as making your bed in the morning or remembering to smile at someone when they talk to you. When it comes down to it, even small steps add up over time.
Taking time to reflect on what we’ve done is important because it reminds us that we are capable of so much more than we think. And when we don’t feel like we’re achieving anything, remembering what we’ve already done can help us get back on track and keep moving forward with confidence!
