elf doubt is something we all have to overcome. It is simply not having the the confidence to move forward. Sitting in our own self doubt will produce bad fruits. Fruits can lead to irresponsibility, immature, blame and any thing else that can blind us from seeing the harm we are causing ourselves. It is when we control our self doubt and not letting them control us that we can really move towards growth.
This is one of those easier said than done but is it really?? Self doubt comes from a ignorance and the longer we stay in that state of mind,ignorance, the longer we will produce the bad fruit that comes from it. Choosing to be more aware of our ignorance state of mind and finding the correct knowledge is what leads us to another reality. Once you know more about your self doubt and understand why you doubt , you will get to a point of self assess. The ability to self assess is very prodigious to move forward in life. Once you see why you your actions and attitude is producing a certain outcome you will start to ask these type of questions.
Why do I have little confidence in myself? Why do I run to this addiction? Why do I always blame my wife,job, parents, upbringing, school? Why am I not further in life then I want to be? Once you can personally answer these questions for yourself, you will start to realize that the only person who has been holding you back is YOU!
I believe as human beings we all want to increase out status in life. But we have to make sure we are seeing how we can get better. Never ever compare yourself among others! Never! This is a common problem. Instead compare yourself among yourself, because now you can reflect on what you need to do to get better.
Not doing this is what Eric Thomas would call “ The inability to self asses.”
The only person you need to compare yourself to is you. Once you see what needs to change you are now responsible to make it happen. You have to see why you doubt yourself! You have to see why you play the blame game! You have to see why you are so immature! You have to see why you run to your addictions instead of facing the truth about yourself.
One of my favorite bible verses this year I reflect on is James 1:22-25
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.”
We are only deceiving ourselves when we know what we need to do but choice to do nothing. We let our doubt kick in and rob us from doing what needs to be done. Because it is the doing you will find the person you truly want to be! As you keep on doing , it is easier to self assess what you need to do better. Because you have witness yourself having a flaw in the midst of your doing. You can easily self assess and keep moving forward.
When you are doing nothing and then you start to doubt yourself in the midst of doing nothing. You will keep producing that bad fruit.
Which fruit do you want to produce? Good or Bad?
Until tomorrow, what’s your self talk?
