Reframing self-doubt

Reframing self-doubt

“What if I fall? Oh but my darling what if you fly?”

Our what ifs (otherwise known as self-doubt) can hold us back from listening to our intuition, stepping into our true power, and playing our part in the universal unfolding of life itself!

Sometimes a simple reframe can help us to disrupt a negative pattern of self-doubt and criticism.

What if I leave my job and never find another one?

vs

What if I leave my job and with the boost of energy I gain by not being tied down to something that leaves me feeling lifeless at the end of every day, I find a better job, start freelancing or start my own business?

What if I take a risk and invest in myself and it doesn’t pay off?

vs

What if I take a risk and whether or not it pays off in the ways I originally anticipated actually becomes less important, because I have grown, learned and gained so much along the way that I couldn’t have possibly foreseen back then?

What if I speak up and tell that person how I’m really feeling and they reject me?

vs

What if I tell that person how I’m really feeling and they listen, opening up a dialogue around both of our wants and needs, and how we can move forward in a way that honours our boundaries and feels good for both of us?

How many “what ifs” do you currently have running through your mind and how can you reframe them? Try writing them all out and a reframe for each one.
