Does Doubt Control You?

by Helen Denney-Stone on 15 November, 2012

Can You do It? – Achieve I mean. Succeed at your life and live the life you want?

Well statistically only 3% will fulfill their potential.

“Is that all”- I hear you say – “Well I don’t stand a chance.”

However 3% of the population is nearly 200 million.  So the real question is, are you going to be one of the 200 million?

Here I hope you have answered Yes, if not Start by saying YES now, out loud.

Are you beginning to think negative thoughts, are the doubts setting in?  Infested by doubts – doubts are a disease and they cause harm. Negative thoughts, negative talk invade the system and again they cause harm neither allow for growth and productivity.

Doubt breeds Fear
Fear breeds Inaction
Inaction breeds Failure


So the first thing to do is this – Change your focus – focus on what can be done – focus on the belief that it is possible.

Because it is possible!

Banish every negative thought to another galaxy. If you can not manage that imagine putting each negative thought in a box with a big sign on it Do Not Open, then place that box on a high shelf out of reach.

Of course doubts come to us all but it is how and what we do when we feel a doubt that is the difference and is often the difference between success and failure. Doubt breeds one of the 4 deadly F’s we can have in life and that is F is for FEAR – doubt breeds Fear.

We are all scared at times, but so what – it makes you realise you are alive! Don’t use Fear as an excuse because that is often what happens and then failure is just around the corner. So kick the Doubt into the stratosphere which will carry the Fear with it.

We have all heard the excuses …….
I can’t do it”,
“I am not talented enough”
“I don’t have the knowledge”
“ I am too old – or too young”, “Nobody believes I can do it”
“I was not brought up to be able to do it”.

Truth is you can find an excuse for everything, you can have a doubt cause a fear and always do nothing.

So choose to be like the successful, choose to react to those doubts in a way that they become your friend, your challenge, not your enemy. After all doubt is your friend because it stops 97% of people acting allowing you to be part of the 3% who choose to push the fear away and keep going.

We will all face problems and hurdles whilst achieving our goals but again it is how you react to these problems that counts.

Doubt the Devil Do you see them as insurmountable and they prevent you from continuing?
Or do you see them as a hurdle that you will get over or around or under and in the course of that action you will learn and grow?

It is an undeniable fact that successful people react and respond to doubt and problems in a specific way where they can dissolve the fear and replace it with a course of positive action. Thus keeping them on track with their defined goal.

So if in doubt there is no doubt – Banish it!!

One of the more successful ways to help you hone your goals is to vision your success therefore removing doubt.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer doubt and fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
Dale Carnegie.
