It's easy to let circumstances and self-doubt sabotage your life. Everyone grapples with self-doubt once in a while. A little self-doubt is not only normal, it's healthy. It prevents a person from crossing the fine line between self-confidence and excessive self confidence.

It's important not to let self-doubt derail you from your intentions.

Allowing self-doubt to prevent you from grabbing opportunities that come your way is an act of self-sabotage.

Here are the steps so you can deal with self-doubt in a constructive way:-

Stop Making Excuses

Self-doubt often makes us rationalize a situation to fit our emotional state. We may be afraid to fail, afraid to look bad, afraid to take on more than we think we can handle. So we become adept at making a lot of excuses for why an opportunity that presents itself isn't a good fit. The enemy is our chattering brain, which, if we give it so much as a nanosecond, will start producing excuses, alibis, transparent self-justifications, and a million reasons why we can't/shouldn't/won't do what we know we need to do. Think back on opportunities you turned down. What reasons did you give yourself? Where these legitimate reasons or just excuses? Excuses are mental barriers we erect that hold us back.

Beware Of Your Close Circle

There is a popular saying that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. While there is no scientific study to support this notion, there is a kernel of truth in the statement: Those we habitually spend time with can have a profound effect on us, whether we are aware of it or not. We know from

Research that experiences reorganize neural pathways in the brain. Our neural connections change even after a 20-minute conversation! Who do you spend the most time with? What effect do they have on you? When you spend time with them, do you walk away feeling better about yourself or worse? At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people we will become.

Raise Your Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is one of the most powerful personal development tools in your arsenal. Make use of it by understanding the root causes of your self-doubt. What specific situations trigger bouts of self-doubt? If it's a lack of skill in an area, resolve to do something about it. For example, it may be a fear of a new relationship after your last relationship "failed". Or it may be anxiety at having to talk to strangers. Just about anything can be learned. Go out there and get the training you need, or get a coach to help you.

Practice Self-Compassion

While it's easy to extend compassion to others, very few people are able to temper their self-criticism with self-compassion. Self-compassion is simply being kind to oneself. Studies show that there is a strong correlation between self-compassion and positive mental health, such as reduced anxiety and greater life satisfaction, as well as higher self-esteem.

For example, when you fail at something that's important to you, do you keep things in perspective, or do you become consumed by feelings of inadequacy?

When something doesn't go right, do you try to keep your emotions in balance?

Self-compassion develops emotional resilience. To become better at this, notice your own suffering, especially when it's caused by your self-judgment or self-criticism; don't be cold-hearted toward yourself, and remember that imperfection is a part of our shared human experience. Where's the contract you signed when you were born that said that you would be perfect?

Stop Asking For Validation

Seeking others' input and advice is helpful. However, if you are in the habit of continuously asking others what they think before making decisions on important matters, you might be weakening your faith in yourself and giving away your power. Take some advice, but at some point, make a decision on what feels right to you.

Trust Your Values

Trusting Your Gut and Values is vital. More and more, we are called upon to make quick decisions with very little information. When you know what you stand for and what is important to you, it becomes easier to make decisions that are aligned with your values, with what matters to you. Self-doubt cripples our ability to make important decisions—knowing yourself and living your values is one of the best antidotes to self-doubt. One of the many practical tips is to find two mentors, one twice your age and one half your age. One will share the wisdom of experience; the other will take you on an unknown path. Drawing from these wells will strengthen your trust in your ability to pursue your goals.

You may be holding back because you don't want to be vulnerable— running the risk of criticism, or failing.

What ideas are buried because you distrust yourself?

Self-doubt is mental paralysis. The only cure for it is having the guts to get started.
