Insecurities can stop you in your tracks

Faith in yourself is the biggest test you will ever face. You can believe in anything you want but if you do not believe in yourself then you will always struggle to overcome the insecurities that constantly hold you back. Imagine you are in the water swimming along happily and suddenly you start worrying if your stroke is correct. Your arms suddenly feel heavy, you are conscious of your legs kicking against the water and you realize that you are not moving forward as swiftly and smoothly as you were before.

The insecurities are weighing you down, even though you were swimming confidently before. Gradually if you listen to the insecurities they will stop you moving forward and slowly pull you under into the murky realm of doubt. Try instead focus on your destination or goal. Imagine yourself there enjoying the achievement you have undertaken and feel yourself suddenly gliding through the water as if it were not even there. No resistance holding you back. We often over analyze ourselves to the point it holds us back. Believe in yourself and you will overcome any challenge that lies ahead.

  1. As hard as it may be at times, I have to agree, it’s important to believe in yourself and in your capacity to perform to the best of your ability. If you don’t believe in yourself, how can you expect anyone else to believe you? You are your own best friend! πŸ™‚


  2. and your own worst enemy if you don’t. Thanks for your comment Seth. Hope you are well? take care Alan.


  3. Your post hit a nerve…I’m not sure if it’s an Italian thing but my mother has always been very critical…I always felt like everything I did she could have done better…it took me 63 years to voice my opinion…and when I don’t share her opinion now it annoys her. Sometimes I think I should revert back to saying exactly what I know she wants to hear but it’s taken me so long to get to this point and I truly believe God wants me to be the person He created me to be. My fav pix: 2nd in 1st,1st in 4th, 2nd in 5th and 1st in 6th. πŸ™‚
