3 Ways to Deal with Self Doubt as an Expert…

I was sitting on the train as it entered the big dark tunnel into the city.

The second the train plummeted into that tunnel I would feel a deep pit in my stomach.

This was an everyday occurrence.

But it had nothing to do with the tunnel or city…

…It was because I hated my job.

And on top of that, I was failing at my job!

My manager was formally meeting with me very regularly to direct me (i.e. performance manage me).

And the worst part for me was that I had such high hopes for my career. And in my first official job, I was failing miserably.

In a desperate last attempt to not entirely lose my reputation, I resigned before they could fire me.

As I walked out of the office on my last day, I remember feeling like an absolute failure.

I told myself “I’ve destroyed the foundation of my career”.

Fast forward 17 years and I am sooooo grateful for that experience.

It was the catalyst for…..

1. Actually discovering what I was good at.

2. Finding a career that I loved

3. Then discovering my passion for coaching and speaking

However, the initial shock of that experience created a lot of doubt and fear in me.

It took me many years to overcome that fear and change how I saw myself.

If you have ever experienced fear and doubt in your life then I think you’re going to LOVE today’s Expert Edge episode.

I’m sharing with you the 3 ways that I’ve overcome my fear to build a highly successful expert business.

In the episode, I unpack three ways to overcome doubt, but let me give you the first…

1. Thank your fear and doubt for protecting you up to this point

This may seem counterintuitive, but the best way to start overcoming your fear is to thank it for serving you up to this point.

It has protected you and helped you to stay safe, hasn’t it?

It is so easy to try and push the fears you feel away, but let me tell you, that will NEVER work.

You have to first thank your fears for doing their job, it’s only then that you’ll be ready to overcome them!

In the episode, I lead you through a powerful experience of doing that.

I go deeper into this first strategy, then the next two strategies are all about overcoming your doubts.
