Second Guess Yourself

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

You’ve decided on a goal, something you want to do or be. You’re excited and have done your due diligence and are confident enough to move forward. Then something happens, you become discouraged and start to second guess yourself.

It could be something small like a look or gesture from someone else. It could be a little bigger like another person telling you your idea won’t work or that there are too many others who have tried and failed. It could be something bigger like a test failure or failure to get a job interview.

It could be something much bigger like a financial setback or denial of a loan or rejected by a school program or employer.

It could be anything.

Just because you have a setback doesn’t mean your original plan was fraught with errors and it definitely doesn’t mean you should give up. It just means that following the path you’ve chosen is challenging and hard work.

Now is where it gets interesting. It’s time to buckle down and problem solve. There are ways to solve the problem that is currently standing in your way. Think of at least five ways to solve it. Map it out. Talk it out. Get the opinion of someone you trust who won’t discourage you.

Don’t give up!

Rejected

Monday, August 24th, 2015

There is nothing most of us hate more than being rejected.

Who likes that?

Who wants one person, a group of people, or any collective unit to ignore, walk away from, bully, or in some other way

discard them by:

Rejecting your ideas

Rejecting your presence

Rejecting YOU

The above is painful. In fact so painful it can mean we withdraw from people places–life as we know it–just

so we aren’t subjected to that kind of pain again.

However, when our worst fear is realized and we are rejected our body and mind will heal if we allow that healing

process to begin.

Beginning the process is key.

Move through the rejection as you would a bad storm.

Keep righting yourself even when monstrous winds come along that knock you off your feet.

Get back up.

Ride it out and maintain calm the best you can.

A rejection can end up giving you an experience in which you gain strength wisdom and the foothold you need to

move toward a better life.
