Don't Try to Battle Your Self-Doubt - Accept It
No matter how confident a person is, no matter how many Oscars or Olympic medals or rave reviews they have, they are still subject to questioning their abilities from time to time. As long as we are identifying with our egos, we are all subject to this doubt. The ego is the part of mind that judges, compares, complains, needs to be right and loves conflict. It's not bad but when the ego is left in control, there in lies the problem. We are meant to run the show, not the other way around. As soon as we begin to see we are operating from our ego, we begin to shift that power.
So when you are in the throws of a particularly nasty battle and self-doubt is winning, take off the gloves and turn your palms up. If you keep punching it will only get stronger, you will continue to feed it. Take a step back, take another breath and let it be. Acceptance is the name is the name of the game.
