This little voice seems to reside just under our daily conscious thinking, and whilst it rarely shouts for our attention, it can prove very hard to ignore.
If that inner voice is convincing enough, it may cause you to ignore everything that you have genuinely achieved thus far and could even cause you to give up completely. Its effects are clearly disempowering – sapping your energy, your motivation; causing your thoughts to spiral downward and your vision to fog over. So you do need to have some strategies to deal with it.
Yet, this is not something anyone else can ‘fix’ for you - it’s down to YOU to address this situation and resolve it.
Whatever you do, do not let it derail you!
Hearing such negative thoughts in your head is not the real problem, of course, because even the most successful people in the world face these same doubts and questions. The issue is simply, what will you choose to do with it?
So, let’s tackle this head on: Do you think you’re worthy of success?
As you face that question, see what comes up for you.
Now this is the crunch - in truth, your success has nothing to do with you being deserving in any way. Success simply comes as a result of consistently applying yourself to the principles that lead to success.
Certainly, you need to be honest with yourself and accept you will not always do everything perfectly. In any business it will not always be smooth sailing as you navigate the waters around you. But there’s a big leap between acknowledging that things not going your way all the time and a believing that *you* are not deserving of success.
Some people try to overcome their inner voices by using ‘affirmations’ to tell themselves over and over “I DO deserve this, I DO deserve this!” If done in the right way, this *can* have a positive affect. But my personal approach is to throw out any question of ‘deserving’ or ‘not deserving’ anything. Instead I focus on the laws that govern success.
Because underlying all this is the understanding that there are LAWS that govern success – and WHOEVER follows those laws will succeed. Sure there are bumps in everyone's road... but it’s probably better if you get the whole idea of *deserving* out of your head!
Do what's required and you *will* enjoy the rewards. It doesn't mean it will appear overnight but you will receive the rewards of success if you are persistent.
So don’t waste time worrying about what you haven’t yet achieved, whether you’re ‘good enough’ to warrant a favourable outcome. Simply press forward in the knowledge that success comes to those who address the right things in the right way.
Take time to study the laws of success. Find others who have achieved the sort of success you desire and model their ways of doing things; their mindset and habits.
Sure, there will be challenges to face at times, sometimes many of them, but worthiness doesn't come into it – not at all.
