5 Ways to Stop Doubting Yourself - Work Hard and Make it Happen

5 Ways to Stop Doubting Yourself – Work Hard and Make it Happen

I think one of the biggest things that stops people from achieving things is their fear of failure. But in reality, it’s doubt that starts the whole ball rolling. Doubt about your talent, about your skills, about your abilities, about your intelligence, and so on, are the things that even prevent you from trying. Doubt is something which precedes fear, which ignites and inflames fear, which stops most people from even pushing a little bit outside of their comfort zones.

In this video I’m going to be talking about planning, overthinking, using your past doubts, avoiding spinning your thoughts out of control, and keeping an air of confidence about you.

One of the best parts about quitting drinking alcohol is that you necessarily have to change many parts of your life to accommodate your new self. Think about this. This is a wonderful opportunity to get a fresh start, to become the person who you really want to be.
On the other side of the coin, in order to get to that place where you never look at alcohol again, never desire another drunken night, you have to become a different person… It’s necessary… you have to alter your thinking on a very fundamental level.
In this video I talk about changing on the inside which precipitates change on the outside. How to push yourself to take those actions and how it all begins with altering your thoughts.

You Have To Plan for Context in Any Behaviour Change

You Have To Plan for Context in Any Behaviour Change

You have to understand the context in which you want to change a behaviour. Obviously, with alcohol drinking, the basic idea is to stop putting this stuff into your mouth. So, the contextual element of this comes into play when you are figuring out what triggers your drinking, where you drink, who you drink with, how much you drink, the time of day you drink, and so on… These are all contextual markers. You also have to identify the context of the new behaviours you would like to acquire.
