When we have doubt, whether when nervous before a meeting, a musical performance or when we’re starting a new venture, it usually points at one thing: you need more experience.
Here’s the issue: many of us confuse doubt from our lack of skills with personal inadequacy.
That’s plain dumb. It could be true that you need more practice to be more effective in something, but that has nothing to do with personal worth.
Feeling doubt can point to a need to gain more skill in something — great.
Use that, but don’t make it about you — make it about your lack of skill. Big difference.
