3 Powerful Ways Your Talent Can Help You Overcome Self-doubt And Reach Your Goals

Published

overcome self-doubt

David Blaine.

 

The first thing that comes to mind is MAGIC. He’s a genius to say the least.

 

The mastermind of his craft.

 

If you haven’t had a chance to see him perform live you’ve probably seen him on The Oprah Winfrey Show when he carried out the act of holding his breath under water for over 17 minutes. He broke the world record then.

 

His obsession with magic started when he was a young boy. A boy who couldn’t walk well but loved playing baseball. Still, this did not stop him from dreaming big.

 

So he tried swimming. But because he couldn’t swim as fast as the other kids he realized that the only way to beat everyone else, was by holding his breath during the entire race, which made him swim faster.

 

He would swim, but wouldn’t breathe. And that’s when he found one of his many special talents.

 

Anything I do, anybody could do…It’s playing with that line of how far can you push yourself before you crack, live in front of an audience, that I’m intrigued by.”

                                                                                                                  – David Blaine

 

Do you see where I’m going with this?

 

David Blaine found what he was good at, focused all his energy on it and broke the world records. He had a dream that he knew he wanted to reach, turned it into a goal and made it come true.

 

And guess what?

 

He never gave up.

 

So let me ask you this. What is your special talent?

 

What have you found yourself doing so well that made you happy and fulfilled you just couldn’t stop? Do you get excited just talking about it and finding it an infinite source of ideas?

 

I am sure you do. And I know you have talents. Not just one, but many.

But what happens when you start doubting your abilities and persuade yourself that you are not good enough?

 

Do you give up?

 

Does this cause you to doubt your dreams so you dread setting goals because of the fear that you would fail somewhere along the way?

 

Whatever it is that makes you unique and different from others, you have to nurture it and help it grow.

 

Research shows that when you nurture your gifted side your strengths become more visible. You see the opportunity in everything. You feel motivated to keep going.

 

So how can nurturing your talent help you overcome self-doubt and reach your goals?

 

Let’s take a closer look.

 

 

  1. Focus On Your Strengths.

 

I once had to give a speech in front of five hundred people. I was well prepared and had previously mastered the techniques for crushing the fear of public speaking, but just as I had started talking I experienced a sudden block.

 

I could not finish my thought.

 

My palms were sweating and I felt extremely uncomfortable as everyone was staring at me.

 

So I had to do what I do best – come up with a story. Instead of standing there and staring at the audience apologizing for forgetting my speech, I continued with my storyline. My little tale was so vivid that even my colleagues thought it was true. And, the audience loved it.

 

When you are faced with an uncomfortable situation or you doubt yourself that you are capable of dealing with what’s coming, just pause for a moment, take a deep breath and give yourself time to think.

 

What was that one thing that you found you were good at? How does it make you feel?

 

Powerful, right?

 

Keep thinking of yourself as an expert, your experience and knowledge led you to where you are today. And your self-belief and positive attitude will get you where you want to be.

 

Using your strengths will not only make you feel better about yourself but it will also motivate you to learn new skills and develop yourself further.

 

  1. Share Your Gift With The World.

 

Sharing your talents with others can be one of the most gratifying things you can do for yourself that will help boost your confidence.

 

Give back to the people you love and to your community by helping them live a better life. Share your talents with them. Cook a warm meal for a person who needs it, share a story with someone who cannot read, teach a child a new skill.

 

When you help someone in need you feel a sense of accomplishment, which helps you move forward and motivates you to do even more good. You are making a difference in the world by being present and making people happy. This can have an amazing impact on your overall self-confidence and will feed your mind with the positivity that you need.

 

  1. Triumph Over Negativity.

 

Don’t be afraid to fail. It will take time to master your skill. Practice. Be patient and work hard. Do it until you master it. Don’t stop.

 

When you fail you have to let go of the negative thoughts. Think of your past successes and learn from your mistakes. Do not dwell on disappointments.

 

And if someone tries to bring you down or criticize your hard work, just ignore them. They feel scared and threatened by your success because they don’t have the courage to make a change and better their lives.

 

Worrying won’t change the outcome it will make you feel weak and defeated. And there is no need for you to feel this way. You’ve just started working on your talents and developing your full potential.

You can do anything you imagine. What are you waiting for?
