Self-doubt shouldn’t be a thing, but it is

The two components of self-doubt

Self-doubt is the end product of the summation of two problems. One is self-confidence and the other is a feeling of incapability. These are, of course, intertwined.

Origin of Self Doubt

This is a strong notion and it all begins with society.

How to beat self-doubt

Have a routine

One I would personally recommend, which has done wonders for me, is to have a routine.

Learning a skill

This is another way to get rid of that feeling of low self-confidence and/or lack of capability.

Surround yourself with successful people

Why self-doubt doesn’t make sense, yet it is there.

Imagine being the only person who sabotages oneself to be that same person.
