Fear and self-doubt are the most common limiting believes and those may the ones stopping you from achieving your goals. Self-doubt is the lack of confidence or don´t believing in yourself.
If you believe that you are not worth it or that you don´t deserve anything great you are living in self-doubt which is one reason to keep leaving your goals for when you are good enough, when you know everything you need, when you deserve what you want. But if you believe this then you´ll stay where you are right now. There´s no way you can achieve something if you don´t start working and to take action you need to eliminate self-doubt from your mind. Increasing confidence on yourself is key.
One of the best steps you can take to start increasing your self-confidence is set small goals, goals you can achieve in 1 week. It can be as simple as reading 10 minutes a day for the next 7 days, it can be to eliminate all junk, processed and fast food from your house and office, it can be to do 10 minutes of exercise every day.
Take the activity you want or the goal you want to achieve in 1 week, keep it simple so that you can keep track of your progress daily and achieve your goal in those 7 days, what we´re looking for here is to keep you accountable. To realize that you can achieve your goals, with time you need to make those goals bigger and bigger and of course; you need to give enough time.
Starting with weekly goals builds momentum and that´s what you need, when you are lock in any limiting belief we need to eliminate that limiting belief and change it for a positive one so we need to get out of that loop, in this case the belief that you are not worth it or you don´t deserve it or you are not capable. When we set small goals we can achieve in a small period of time our self-confidence start to increase and this motivates us to go after bigger goals.
Taking action is crucial, take one step at a time, just one action. What action do you need to do today that will improve your life what do you need to do every single day to achieve your dream?
Working on small weekly goals make us feel successful, it makes us feel that we can achieve something, that we are capable of doing what we said we were going to do and that feeling of success and accomplishments is what motivate us to set bigger goals.
The bigger your goals, the bigger the reward and the bigger the feeling of success and accomplishment. When you start to eliminate self-doubt and increase self confidence you start with small goals, one thing you need to consider is do not listen to what others say or think of you, most people will always be criticizing and talking behind our backs, we will never please everyone so stop worrying about that. When we listen and pay attention to those negative comments we are only giving more importance and we´re taking our focus from what matters which is our goal.
It doesn´t matter what your goal for your first week is, we´re all at different levels so don´t compare yourself to others, it doesn´t matter if their coworkers, classmates, neighbors or social media influencers. Focus on you and do your thing there´s no reason to compare with someone who hasn´t lived our story.
