No matter what job you have, your success depends on understanding your shortcomings as well as your strengths.
Without an awareness of where you've got room for growth, it's very difficult to improve your performance. But, too much focus on your weaknesses can make you doubt yourself and make you unable to take the risks needed to move forward. There are strategies you can use to overcome self-doubt.
Being too focused on our own limitations can prevent us from moving past them. When this happens, it's helpful to gain some distance from ourselves by channelling the alter ego.
Taking on a persona of someone more confident can help you gain perspective and let you see your challenges without letting them overwhelm you.
To help you overcome excessive self-consciousness, intentionally think about yourself from someone else's perspective.
Another person may think you've got nothing to fear, that you're great. Seeing it from that point of view can clear your mind of self-doubt and help you perform at your best.
While constructive feedback can be very valuable, we need to learn to ignore destructive feedback. When you are in a leadership position, everyone will have an opinion on how you could work better. However, not everyone's opinion is useful.
Instead of considering irrelevant feedback, label these comments as opinions and noise. Instead of reacting, hear the feedback, acknowledge it politely, and sift between the useful and the noise.
Self-talk is often extremely negative, keeping us in doubt.
Learn to identify these negative internal voices and replace them with a more productive and positive narrative. Instead of telling yourself that you can't, tell yourself that you like to step up to a discussion. Over time, you will gain more confidence.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
