Have you ever shied away from doing something because you felt that you couldn’t do it as well as others?
Like make that great recipe your mom used to make, or join the local slow pitch team?
If it is something that you truly want to do, don’t let your inner doubts about your skills hold you back.
Do what you must to break through that barrier of self-doubt and give it a try.
You may be surprised by the hidden talents you possess.
Don’t let self-doubt and fear keep you from finding your true potential
If you see something that piques your interest, look into it and see if it is right for you.
Last year, a local theatrical production mentioned in their newsletter that they were looking for extras in that year’s play.
Our family had been attending the annual plays for years, that is how we ended up receiving their newsletter, and always enjoyed the shows.
The actors and production people always seemed happy to be there.
Although I had never acted in anything before, I replied to the request and said I would be willing to help out.
At the time, I figured my chance of getting to act in the play were slim to none due to my lack of experience and didn’t really expect a reply.
Well, you can imagine my surprise when I received a call from the director about a month later saying that I was one of the people they were interested in having on the cast.
That is when all of the negative thoughts started to pop in my head:
- I am too old to do this for the first time
- I will never be able to learn things properly
- I am going to make a fool of myself in front of an audience
- What will the people I know think when they see me doing this?
To name a few…..
Anyway, I didn’t let any of these thoughts stop me, joined the cast, learned tons of stuff about acting and had an excellent time.
I was even asked to return this year and am looking forward to doing it again.
Don’t let your expectations hold you back
We have all encountered situations where we have been asked to do something that was traditionally done by someone else.
That other person did a great job and always received compliments for doing this chore.
For some reason, you have now been tasked with performing this duty and your first thought is “I can’t possibly do this as well” before even trying.
It is a natural response that most of us have.
Even if we have done something similar in the past, and done it well, we still have this fear of not being able to live up to the task.
Don’t let that fear of failure creep in when these opportunities present themselves.
This fear often keeps us from doing things that could prove our capabilities and help us to reach our full potential.
You will usually find that your expectations of the outcome are much higher than anyone else’s and just doing anything will be enough to make others happy.
So don’t let this fear and self-doubt hold you back.
Have the attitude that you CAN do it and give it your best shot.
You will find that you do have the skills required to meet the challenge and may even discover a hidden talent or two you didn’t know you possessed.
