After defining success for myself, The Success Chronicle’s Chip Baker challenged me to evaluate my life in its current state and identify the areas where I am already successful. Well, turns out that I was more successful than I would have given myself credit for.
“Don’t doubt yourself, that’s what haters are for”.
We must give ourselves more credit! As we climb higher and challenge ourselves more in life, we lose sight of the progress we made to reach our current height. We might not have confidence in this new uncharted height, but that shouldn’t override our perception of the growth we have experienced along the way. If we revert to self-doubt, then we are supporting our own failure. And even so, failure is better viewed as an unsuccessful attempt that prepares us for our next endeavors. Doubt stemmed off of a belief that the goal can never be achieved, and it’s always just too early to tell because there is so much growth to be had. Build yourself up, don’t tear yourself down, there are plenty of haters who will attempt to do that.
