This works for me - if I am "stuck" and having difficulty motivating myself, or I notice a lot of negative 'self-talk,' I start writing down a conversation with this inner voice, using an objective, journalistic, "adult" voice to ask questions of myself and get to the root of my feelings. Tapping into this encouraging, grown-up part of who I am helps to work the negatives out of my thinking and return me to a more positive and courageous mindset. It's like being my own best friend!
The voice of self doubt will be in your head every step of your journey. Find confidence in your self by celebrating the little victories and accomplishments along the way and soon your voice of confidence will be louder than your voice of self doubt!
