EPISODE #14: TIPS FOR DEALING WITH SELF DOUBT

Your Creative Start Podcast Episode 14 Tips for dealing with self doubt.jpg

This week on the Your Creative Start Podcast, I talk about something as creatives, we all experience and struggle with, self-doubt. It’s something I have been wanting to discuss on this podcast because I have felt a lot of self-doubt about running my own creative business. The thing is, I’ve come to realise that self-doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. And if I keep persevering and do the work because I love what I do, self-doubt won't derail me from what I want to achieve. So on todays episode, I share my struggles, thoughts, and tips for dealing with self-doubt. 

 

"don't start or finish your day in the trappings of self-doubt"

"we should all be grateful for the people who do like and engage with our content; focus in on them and don't worry about the people who don't"
