The Importance of a Positive Attitude

Well we all have those moments of self-doubt, it’s a natural response. The question is how do we deal with it and how can we prevent it lurking it’s ugly head again?

I’ll admit that lately I’ve been suffering from a ‘Crisis of Confidence’ As Rich Hall (top Comedian)  would say. This is due to feeling overwhelmed in my new occupation. Even though it’s what I want to be doing, more than anything. I think perhaps I’ve been putting too much pressure on myself. The truth of the matter is this: I need to make it work, because there’s nothing else I want to do.

Dealing with moments of self-doubt: Recognising the emotion, not pushing it to one side, but recognising the feeling and understanding it. Asking what has caused it. An email, a comment from someone, reading something? After a while ask how else you could have seen it/ dealt with it. This should hopefully put a different perspective on it that’s not so negative.

How to stop it lurking it’s ugly head again: Apply the exercise you’ve just done. Instead of immediately reacting, STOP. Think of a different perspective. Some people, as bad as it sounds, are just out there to make us feel bad about ourselves, the trick is not to let them. Instead, re-focus and apply the philosophy: i’ll show them. And this song, which I love, should help. It always makes me feel better about myself: Jessie J ‘Who’s Laughing Now’

And above all don’t let it stop you. Keep going and keep smiling 🙂
