Self Improvement15 Things To Remember When You Think You’re Not Good Enough By Samantha Kellgren Share Tweet When was the last time you wanted to do something but then hesitated, once you heard the loud inner voice that said, “Are you crazy, you can’t do that!” We all face it.Doubt can yell and scream, but that doesn’t make it accurate or right.In order to live a forward thinking and positive life, we need to continuously stretch ourselves. Which is much easier said than done.Here are 15 things to remember when your confidence is low. 1.) You Have to Start SomewhereTo be good at anything, you have to start as a beginner. It’s inevitable, so embrace the excitement of a new adventure! 2.) Everyone Thinks They Aren’t Good EnoughWhat I like to refer to as Amature Syndrome, everyone feels they know less and aren’t as good as those around them, it’s not just you. It’s a more level playing field than you thought! 3.) Good Enough For Whom?Who’s standards are you holding yourself to, and do they matter personally? Professionally? Walt Disney himself was fired from a newspaper job because his editor felt he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas”. Maybe he wasn’t “good enough” for this person or this particular job, but he certainly was good enough by other standards! 4.) Someone Looks Up to YouYou may feel you aren’t as good as a colleague, a friend, a mentor, but someone else is thinking they aren’t as good as you. No matter who you aim to emulate, there is someone aiming to emulate you, as they should! 5.) If You Were Perfect, You’d Be BoredIn school, kids who are disruptive are often just bored. They know the material so they need something else to do. If you were good and confident in everything you do, you’d be searching for something else. How boring! 6.) Challenges Make You ThriveI don’t know about you, but when I am working towards a challenging goal I feel alive on all fronts! Whether training for a race, learning more about marketing and running my own business, or trying something new (just signed up for a tap dance class!), I know I’m empowering myself to be my best and it feels great! 7.) You Are Your Harshest CriticIf a friend told you they did or tried the things you are, would you tell them it’s not enough? Of course not! Give yourself a break and recognize your efforts. 8.) There is Always an Area You ExcelYou can’t be good at everything, but you are great at something. When you feel down about not measuring up in one aspect of your life, think about one thing – no matter how small – that you excel at. 9.) All Successful People Have FailuresOprah Winfrey was publicly fired from her first anchor job. She didn’t start out as the Oprah we know today, but she didn’t let that stop her. 10.) It’s Never Too Late To Learn Something NewA report from the American Institute of Economic Research showed that 82 percent of respondents made a successful career change past age 45. I have personally met runners who are winning races after picking up the sport past age 40. These are just a few examples of how you can commit to being a newbie and not good at something at any point in life, and find success and happiness in it. 11.) Think of How Far You’ve ComeGoing back to our first point – you have to start somewhere – think of where you started when you get discouraged about where you aren’t. When a client is down because they indulged in dessert over the weekend, we talk about how they did not have any treats during the week like they were doing a month ago. It’s all about progress, not perfection! 12.) Is It Worth The Worry?Fretting over not being good enough, strong enough, smart enough, anything enough, is not going to make you better. It’s a waste of your energy, so focus on the positive things about you and view the aspects of your life you would like to improve as just that; something to actively work towards. 13.) Trying and Failing is OKIt may be cliche, but failing truly is proof that you are trying. Learn something from each failure and use it to propel you forward instead of dwelling on how things didn’t work out. If you do everything right the first time, you aren’t going to have any breakthroughs. 14.) Be Where You AreSounds a little Zen, but when you enjoy where you are instead of focusing on where you want to be, you’ll enjoy life so much more. Life actually is a journey and not a destination, so look around and take in all that’s happening in the moment before it changes. 15.) You Are The Only You – No One Can Be BetterWe often don’t feel good enough when we compare ourselves to others, but you don’t compare an apple to an orange. Welcome the things – good and not so good – that make you you, and realize that no one can do that better!
