Then the excuses started coming in about why I can't live there again. Billy is gluten free, it would be hell for him living in the bread capital of the world! I'd like a house and if we ended up in Paris we would be in an apartment. The crime was bad last time I lived there. Maybe it's not safe. Maybe it would be a pain applying for Billy and Kaya's residents card. Maybe we wouldn't be able to get healthcare. Maybe it would be best to be in Canada. No more visas!!
The truth is I have no idea if I will ever live their again, but when I confronted these maybes head on I proved them all to be false. Except for the apartment. That was is pretty much a given. The real issue here is doubt.
How often do we dream or set goals and then fear comes to play and ruins everything?
For me this is a regular occurance. I want results from the things I do and if they don't manifest I get discouraged and self doubt sets in. What I've found is that most of everyone's doubts and negativity come from an ignorant place that is trying its best to protect us from anything that may come from doing something different.
We can overcome this doubt, anxiety, and negativity in different ways, but probably the is to prove the negative self banter wrong by showing it examples of people who have done whatever it is we have wanted to do. You can watch this episode of Marie TV to hear Dr. Cathy Collautt talk about how to do this ( you can also get her free pdf on it here)
What do you do when you encounter self doubt? How do you motivate yourself?
