The Voice of Doubt

This week (and last week), I am addressing some of the questions I have received from the BWP Community in response to the free teleclass coming up on Saturday, September 25th. The teleclass is “What Do You Really Want to Do With Your Life?”

Today, I would like to address a topic that has come up over and over again, especially in the online survey. I asked the question what stops you from living your life on purpose, an overwhelming majority said DOUBT. So, I think it fitting to address this sinister voice called doubt.

So, let’s start at the very beginning… What is doubt?

According to Wiktionary, doubt is uncertainty; to lack confidence in; to disbelieve, question, or suspect.

Wikipedia states that doubt brings into question some notion of a perceived "reality", and may involve delaying or rejecting relevant action out of concerns for mistakes or faults or appropriateness. 

When you are full on and living your heart’s desire, then there is no room for doubt. As Dale Carnegie once said, inaction breeds fear and doubt. Doubt rears its head when you are not doing what you were created to do; because you have no authentic belief in doing what you were never meant to do.

Once you get in alignment with your heart’s desire, and begin taking inspired action steps, you will find that the voice of your doubter starts to get quieter and quieter. Just take the first steps, no matter how small. Just begin it and soon your doubt will be no more.

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.” ~ Buddha

What are your thoughts?
