May you benefit from this blog and utilize this simple, proven 3 Step Process to dissolve doubt and shift into a state of joy, confidence and freedom.
The truth is, it’s human to doubt; however, the impact is we sabotage the possibility of any dream to take hold in the fertile soil of creation. “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.” ~ Unknown. Doubt, it’s one of our dream stealers.
When I first started as an entrepreneur, I was filled with fear, doubt and an excitement about following my bliss. Although I had no prior experience as an entrepreneur, I chose the path and chose to take a leap of faith to follow my bliss and figure out the details as the journey unfolded.
As the journey unfolded, I felt blessed to receive all the ‘technical’ support I needed to build a lifestyle business and soon discovered that the real growth in my business would come from transforming who I was, doing what I’ve never done so I can be what I’ve never been.
My journey of personal transformation from the inside out began. The first step to any transformation is awareness so I became aware of my thoughts. I noticed that many of my thoughts were unsupportive of what I was creating and where I was going. I was doubting daily and at the same time resisting that I was doubting. I later learned that the nature of doubt is always about something positive; we doubt goodness in ourselves, we doubt our capabilities not our incapabilities. I learned that when we doubt we create fear and that we can not be in a state of FEAR and in a state of LOVE at the same time. With this new found awareness, I was equipped to choose my thoughts and my state of being, one moment at a time. I started to choose to see LOVE instead of FEAR, one thought at a time; to stand in the space of LOVE, for myself, for my journey and for everyone around me having FAITH that in this space I can attract LOVE filled circumstances in my life. As I practiced more, and continued to stand more and more in this space, I started to see the evidence in all areas of my life. You too can dissolve doubt, so you can continue to powerfully design and create a life you love. May the steps below serve you or someone you know to further master dissolving doubt.
The 3 Proven Steps I Used to Dissolve Doubt:
NOTE: These steps may occur as simple, yet for some they may not be easy. Be patient with the process, as you stay consistent and stick with it, you will start to see the evidence; may you enjoy the unfolding of your personal transformation.
Step 1 - Doubt Daily
As my journey unfolded I learned how important it was to doubt daily, allow it, embrace it and go into it fully. As the Chinese mystic Lao Tzu put it: “If you want to get rid of something, you must first allow it to flourish.” The key was to allow myself to feel and experience my doubt and from this solid place, I had the foundation to be able to move to Step 2.
Step 2 - Doubt Your Doubts
As I saw how often I was doubting daily, I could see that I was stuck in FEAR. I learned that it is impossible for me to be in the space of FEAR and LOVE at the same time. When I chose to stand in the space of LOVE (one moment and one thought at a time) I was able to very naturally, doubt my doubts. As I began to doubt my doubts I would naturally shift my thoughts into a space of possibility and creativity, resting in the benevolent nature of existence.
Step 3 - Dissolve Doubt
As I became more aware of my thoughts and consciously choosing to shift any FEAR based thoughts to LOVE I saw my results shift. As I gained more experience with doubting my doubts and seeing positive outcomes in my business and my life I gained TRUST in myself and the Divine. This strengthened my confidence in the TRUTH the TRUTH of who I am, what I am capable of and who we really are. The TRUTH that the Creator, Source, Divine is always orchestrating life to serve our highest and greatest good and the highest and greatest good of all involved. I am able to powerfully dissolve doubt by having confidence (which was developed over time) in this TRUTH. You see, confidence is the opposite of doubt.
Confidence clears doubt. To gain confidence we musth understand doubt, it’s nature being negative and once we are able to eliminate the negative the positive will immediately emerge.
Whether you are an entrepreneur or exploring the possibility of becoming an entrepreneur I trust that this blog supports you in having more awareness of the nature of doubt and the process one must go through to be able to dissolve it. When we doubt, we create fear and this can keep us stuck in our lives and negatively affect our physical health, our emotional health, our mental health, our spiritual health and our financial health. Over time, being in a constant state of doubt paralyses us and can create dis-ease. There is a way to shift doubt to your advantage to grow into your best self and use it to design and create a life you love.
May you choose the path of personal transformation so you can become masterful at dissolving doubt to design and create a happy, healthy, beautiful, fulfilling life you love.
