I’m super excited because today is my 200th post!
To celebrate the occasion, I thought I’d share my first video.

Today’s topic deals with 5 ways to get self-doubt under control.
I hope you enjoy it. Remember it’s my first video, so please be kind!
One thing that helped me finally punch through my self-doubt is the online course, How to Break the Habit of Self-Doubt and Build Real Confidence Course by Mel Robbins.
This course was a real game-changer for me and I got a lot out of it. You can read my review of the course here to find out how it could benefit you as well.
If you are looking for more information on the course teacher Mel Robbins, she is the author of The 5 Second Rule which is a brilliant book and one I highly recommend. You can read my review of the book here.

Thea, your first video rocked! You’re so cute and have an amazingly soothing presence. Please do more!
I struggle with self-doubt quite often. It’s not only that I think I’m going to fail; I often wonder, “What if I succeed? Then what?” I know the steps that I need to take to get where I want to be, but after that — the unknown — is what’s truly frightening. There is also, of course, always the fear of failing, but it seems that they’re both pressing down on me. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, actually, but here we are.
Anyway, I very much enjoyed your first video!
Thank you so much for your amazing comment. You have totally made my day. I’m ready to do a happy dance around my office.
I am so glad you enjoyed the video. Considering how terrified I was of making it, I am thrilled that it didn’t seem to show. I was really taken back by the soothing presence comment, thank you so much, that really is such a huge compliment.
That whole fear of success thimg is hard to figure out isn’t it. I think its a bit like what Elizabeth Gilbert said in her TED Talk (have you seen it, if not you should definitely pop into TED and have a look). After the success of Eat Pray Love, everyone was saying she was doomed for failure because none of her work could be that good again. Gee no pressure there.
I think that is where the fear comes from, what if we can’t live up to our last success or what if our other projects don’t do as well. It can be a lot to get our heads around.
Thanks again Liz for the wonderful feedback, I am so glad you enjoyed the post. Your encouragement has definitely given me the resolve to keep doing more video.
I watched it, and I loved it. Her talk was very, very inspiring. “Just do your dance.” I had tears in my eyes.
