Self Doubt: The Biggest Killer of Your Dreams

I asked. You bravely answered. And I was blown away.

A few weeks ago, I sent out a survey asking my Jacquie Straight Up subscribers to tell me about the single biggest challenge they are facing.

I am in awe of the responses. They were real, raw, and intensely personal. Thank-you to those who honored me with your honesty.

On today’s very special episode of Jacquie Straight Up, I open up about the survey, and share a topic that many asked me to address: how to believe in yourself and conquer self-doubt.

We all deal with self doubt. There’s no denying it. But here’s the real kicker:

Self doubt is the biggest killer of dreams.

If you’re like every other human on the planet — and the hundreds of women who said self doubt was the biggest challenge they are facing — you won’t want to miss today’s episode.

You’ll learn my tried-and-true formula for beating negativity and moving towards your full potential. Click above to watch.

Self-doubt stems from our negative self-talk — the thousands of little voices we hear every day that say we aren’t strong enough. Not smart enough. Not thin enough. Not rich enough. Not pretty enough.

So how do we get rid of the negativity and self doubt?

It all starts by being AWARE of it, and then making the conscious choice to replace it with something positive.

Replace the negative reasons why you can’t, with all the reasons why you can.

I personally use power mantras to kick the doubt and bolster my self confidence. Here’s the thing: mantras are much more powerful and stronger than most people believe.

So today, whatever it is that you need to tell yourself to fight self doubt, I encourage you to just do it. And do it. And keep doing it every day with power and with strength.

Tell yourself how friggin’ great you are. How smart you are. How strong you are. Say it out loud and with conviction and say it over and over again. This stuff works, but you gotta do it!

Together, let’s start killing self doubt, so it no longer kills our dreams.

    Hi Jacquie, I was wondering where you are from, South Africa by any chance? (Your accent has me thinking that.) I just want to say, I really enjoy your messages. I have been my own soul mate for 7 years now and I love the freedom. You are spot on with your message on self doubt. Thank you for sharing.

    Jacquie, what you talk about is so true. What we say to ourselves makes all the difference in the world. My favorite mantra is “DO IT NOW.”
