How to Deal with Self Doubt
Self-doubt can stop the best talent from moving forward, but for all those who struggle with a negative voice, Rahul Bhargava provides practical steps that can be taken to deal with doubt.
We all have experienced self-doubts, especially when it came to undertaking significant life decisions. Whether it is the selection of a career or prospects of a current job, we all have been there.
There is that voice ringing in your head that constantly says that you cannot do it. But the remedy to that pessimistic voice is acting to the contrary and doing what you desire. Acting and getting your ambitions fulfilled is how you silent them forever. They are a part of our experiences as we grow up.
What causes you to doubt yourself?
The lack of confidence and the air of uncertainty gives space for doubts. There are things around us that we cannot control which often cultivates reasons for concern and anxiety. I will share my example here

For a long time, I was trapped in the self-doubt prison of my creation. Humans were not born to be perfect, we were born to be real, and to have emotions, to make mistakes and learn from them. The attribute of perfection belongs only to our creator.
Sometimes we fixate on a certain outcome which creates an immense level of fear.
Key points include:
- A healthy amount of self doubt
- Psychological means to justify behavior
- When self-doubt becomes depression
