Doubting ourselves is completely normal. However, it’s one of the biggest reasons we don’t achieve our dreams or goals – and, in many cases, never try in the first place. 

The truth is that no path to success is linear. We all face hurdles and challenges along the way – it’s part of the process. They key to success is belief in yourself and your ability to overcome challenges and be successful, even when faced with bumps in the road. 

How to Stop Self-Doubt In Its Tracks

Tip #1: Find a goal that gets you excited!

Goals should ignite a fire inside of you. You should be doing it for yourself, not anyone else. The key here is finding one that gets you excited and that makes you want to achieve it. Maybe this means being able to play tag with your grandkids by getting back in decent shape. Perhaps it’s simply being able to perform a squat without knee pain. Whatever the case, make sure it’s something you want.

Tip #2: Break that goal into several smaller goals.

Once you have that big and exciting goal, break it up into smaller steps. For instance, you won’t be performing an ultramarathon right away. So, get excited about achieving that 5-kilometer distance first! Then, add those smaller goals from there.
