I Want To Be a Killer- A Doubt Killer!

20130723-162829.jpg

Many people who know me always assume that I have everything in my life all together. Although it would appear that way from the outside looking in, I can guarantee you that this is not the case. I would love to stand on a mountaintop and shout out to the world “I am a work in progress!” We ALL are. No one in this world is perfect. We all have our own battles in life to fight. My biggest struggle is with doubt.

Doubt and I have had so many brawls over the years. Sometimes I take doubt down with an uppercut and a right hook. Other times doubt knocks me down for the count. The biggest thing doubt has kept me from doing is pursuing all of my dreams.

I am an extreme dreamer. I feel like I have more dreams that I want to achieve than the average person. If I could I would probably have a new career every 4-5 months. Just kidding! Honestly I just want to find my passion in life and throw myself into it. In order for me to follow my passion, I am going to have to become a killer- a doubt killer. No longer can I allow doubt to make me feel like I’m not “good enough”,  “smart enough”, “strong enough” to reach my destiny.

Here are a few things that I have been doing to try to assassinate doubt for good!

  • Positive reinforcement: Whenever doubt sneaks into my thoughts, I say the exact opposite of what I am thinking. For instance: If I think “Oh I can’t do that”… I will immediately state “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me!
  • Change my surroundings: It’s essential to change your surroundings- specifically the people you surround yourself with. I read an interesting quote that made me really think about who I hang around. It stated that you are likely to become like the 5 people who you interact with the most. I had to readjust my social circle online and in my personal life. I want to be surrounded by people who are positive, motivating, dreamers not people who are constantly pessimistic, negative, and without a vision for their lives.
  • Pray constantly: Whenever I feel like doubt is trying to take over, I pray and ask God to help me. I’m just going to keep it real with you guys, I have to turn over my  doubts to God on a regular basis. He is faithful and I always feel better afterward. Recently He has been keeping a song in my heart that I have been referring to anytime doubt tries to rear it’s ugly head. Here are the lyrics:

Help me to see me the way You see me
sometimes I see pain Lord when You see victory
I see where I am Lord You see where I shall be
open my eyes, help me believe I am what You see
You see me victorious. You see me faithful
You see me believing that You are able
You see me rejoicing cause I have survived
open my eyes, help me believe I am what You see

  • Keep persevering: No matter how much I would like to just give up on my dreams and fade into a life of settling for what I have, I just can’t. Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate everything that I have been blessed with in my life thus far. I just don’t want to look back in 10, 20, or 30 years and think what if I just stepped out on faith? Could my life have been different? Life is too short to have regrets.  I used to be afraid of failing but now I see it as a way to approach a situation for a second time equipped with more knowledge. My biggest challenge will be taking that first step outside of my comfort zone. I am determined to get there though.
