When You Doubt Your Power, You Give Power to Your Doubts – Honore De Balzac

As humans we have the unique ability to imagine ourselves in the future, which is extremely helpful in a lot of ways, especially when creating goals and dreams for ourselves, but it also allows our minds the opportunity to think of all the different negative scenarios and results that could happen as well.  If we allow our minds to dwell on those negative scenarios for too long or give them any credibility, we start to cast a shadow of doubt over our abilities to accomplish what we want.

Do you have doubts trying to pull you off the path toward your goals and dreams? If you do that only means one thing – you are human! 

We often forget that even the most successful and highest achieving individuals in our society all suffer from doubts from time to time.  The only difference that I can find between those successful and unsuccessful people is that the successful don’t allow their doubts to become more powerful than their goals.  Their goals and dreams have a stronger pull on their future than their doubts.  They believe that the achievement of their goals is more important than any fears or doubts they may experience along the way.

Let us challenge ourselves to become one of these types of people and start doubting our doubts!  Know that doubts plague everyone and we have a choice on whether we give them any power in our life.  As you go into the future, allow your goals and dreams to have the strongest pull on you.  Remember, the only way to completely guarantee you will NEVER accomplish your goals is to heed the advice of your doubts and never try.

  5. This is a great seed! When we concentrate on our doubts, we give them strength, which is the last thing that we should be doing.

  6. “The only difference that I can find between those successful and unsuccessful people is that the successful don’t allow their doubts to become more powerful than their goals.”

    Therein lies the true power of success. A great truth we all should try harder to remember. Thank you for sharing!

  7. So true! I’m going to kick my doubts in the shins!
