You are the point.
Move through the self-doubt
Act in spite of the self-doubt, the what’s the points, the lack of belief, the fear
Make a commitment, definitely decide once and for all that you ARE, that you MUST, that you WILL do what you set out to do, what you think about doing, what you started doing….NO matter what happens decide you are committed to seeing it through, no matter what self doubt or fear comes up, no matter how down you may feel sometimes, no matter how stupid you think you are, no matter how full of despair you may get, no matter the reason your mind comes up with next for not doing it. Decide you have to do it anyway with the fear, with the self-doubt, with the ‘what’s the point’s?
When you have committed a million% to seeing your endeavour through, to trying your dream, to finishing that project, when you have decided with your whole heart and mind that you WILL just do it, no matter the CRAZY self-doubt, fear, ‘what’s the point’ talk going on inside your head, you will make it happen more easily, effortlessly and rapidly. No matter the fear, the negative reasons, the no’s, you are STILL going to work on it, do it, finish it.
When you wake up tomorrow doubting yourself, with fear hanging over you, with the depressing sinking feeling that your idea is stupid, that there isn’t any point, that it’s useless to try, you have committed to carrying on anyway.
You have made a promise to your soul to do it anyway, and your heart will thank you later.
When you tell yourself “what’s the point?” when you pause and listen to the fear, when you procrastinate, feel disheartened you are giving yourself a choice. A choice of not making it happen, a choice of not seeing it through. You are making not doing it an OPTION, you’re making walking away, giving up an option. (How dare you!) You have one foot in and one foot out….aka you’re not committed and you’ll never make it happen. Decide and jump FULLY in.
The voice that says what’s the point is your fear. You are making your deepest fear come true. CHOOSE to listen to your Heart….do the thing that you want to do.
When you have decided, even if you can’t see the point you still HAVE to do it, you will STILL see it through, the self doubt gets LESS because you’ve given yourself no option BUT to do it, so your fear voice has no place. It serves no purpose. It can speak and shout and bring you down all it wants, but it no longer has an effect. Because you DECIDED DEFINITELY that you would do this. When you Decide once and for all….your fear can’t make you procrastinate because you have to get it done anyway. Your fear can’t bring you down because either way you have to do it anyway…so you may as well get on with it.
I have spent months almost years procrastinating on dreams and ideas, stopping and starting them because I chose to listen to “what’s the point” because I let fear drive me numb, stop me in my tracks, have the craziest conversations with myself, make me think I’m crazy, not good enough, my ideas insignificant, stupid…
I just did it! I made THE decision. And the impossible suddenly became possible, and I manifested my ideas at a rapid speed all because I chose!
I chose I ABSOLUTELY have to see it through. I chose to have no choice but to just do it so I can get on with the next big thing. I chose to realise I’d always have massive fears, I chose to realise I’d never stop thinking and wanting to, I chose now or never.
And life sped up, there was NO time to procrastinate, no time for ‘what’s the point’, yes fear came up and made me feel so sick to my stomach, tearful, not good enough, like I couldn’t get out of bed (what the fuck am I doing with my life?!?), wake up with overwhelming anxiety, but I worked through it with gritted teeth, I worked the late nights, I swore to myself, I felt exhausted, I worked my ass off, and suddenly it was done….no big deal….more like how could I have not done this sooner, how much time and happiness I WASTED by procrastinating, which didn’t serve me AT all!
The questioning what’s the point, questioning if I should bother was a complete waste of time.
If you came up with the idea, THAT’s the point of doing it. Nothing else. There is no point trying to convince your crazy fear voices…no matter how much you convince yourself, the voices WILL come back tomorrow and you’re back to square one, convincing yourself again….and again and again….til you decide
The ONLY thing that works is deciding to do it WITH the fear, with the self-doubt, with the “what’s the points?!”
Choose to persevere, choose to walk through the self-doubt. Know that you’re bigger than this doubt, know that it’s not ‘real’…only in your head.
Choose to know that there will always be self-doubt, to something you dream of, to something unknown to you, to something amazing, to something you put on a pedestal.
Choose to know how good you will feel for acting in spite of the self-doubt and fear. Choose to know how much you’ll grow. Choose to know how much prouder you’ll feel for doing something that took commitment, perseverance, courage….over something that was relatively easy, straight-forward, a no brainer, made sense….
Choose to acknowledge your HEART that came up with the idea that you’re choosing to commit to and make happen, to the idea and dream you’re choosing to create…..rather than listening to your MIND.
Choose to make a commitment to yourself! That you’re doing this for you! To make yourself happy, for your enjoyment, for your lessons, for your self-achievement, for your learning.
Choose to choose YOU! The unique heartfelt you, your soul. By committing to YOUR idea, your dreams, your projects you’re saying YES to you, you’re being MORE you! As you align MORE to yourself by saying YES to your heart, you attract and vibrate at YOUR unique level, and bring more YOU into your life. The more you choose YOU, the more your life will align and become what you KNOW it’s meant to become.
Choose to SHOW the world you! Choose to shine by stepping up and doing it. What use are you, what use is it to the world being able to come up with your ideas if you are going to sit on them every single time?
Choose to HONOUR your idea. Ideas are your creative imagination….they tap into something higher, more meaningful, they are anything but insignificant. Choose higher, choose meaning.
What’s the point? YOU are the point.
Choose to choose your uniqueness! You are unique and anything you do, every idea you have, no matter how pointless, small, unoriginal, stupid, not good enough your mind tells you it is, you AUTOMATICALLY make it unique and special, and VALID. Uniqueness isn’t straightforward, don’t expect the ‘what’s the point’ reasons in doing this be simple. You’re a complex, magnificent soul with heartfelt ideas that don’t always make sense in the logical sense…so you can’t always tell yourself what’s the point. The only point is You.
Choose who you want to be! Do you WANT to be that amazing person who does the thing you’re trying to do? Or do you want to be ‘normal’, do you want to be ordinary, do you want to be the girl who didn’t even try? Do you just want to experience your average humdrum, do you want to move FORWARD and UP in life? Because you can’t unless you at least try.
Choose to feel good doing it, choose to enjoy it
Choose to be in control. Don’t let the outcome, your happiness, your idea’s success lie in someone else’s hands e.g. fame….fortune….acceptance. Make the outcome, and your happiness and the success of your idea about YOU. How much fun you had, how much more you know, how much you grew, how much you learned, the CONFIDENCE you gained, how much more ‘you’ you feel, the self achievement you feel, how proud you are, for what you have accomplished…. and make anything else a BONUS!! That you don’t NEED to validate yourself and your ideas!
Decide once and for all that fear may come along, you may feel fear INTENSELY, self doubt may come along, you may drive yourself CRAZY with the chatter in your head, but you WILL STOP convincing yourself why you should do it, because you have already DECIDED you WILL do it and SEE IT THROUGH no matter what! So you can think whats the point all day long, but you’re still doing it and you still are doing it, and you’re still 100% committed to doing it daily, working on it DAILY (because that’s the only way things get done).
Then you can look at your fear and self doubt and what’s the point thoughts from the outside. They will *mostly* fade and pass. And each time they come along stand from the outside and know and TRUST it will pass, and unfortunately for your voices, (but fortunately for your heart) you promised, you committed to doing it anyway, so who cares what the voice is saying this time?
Then rinse and repeat….on to the next dream….onto the next idea…
And once you’ve done it you’ll stand back and realise it was no big deal AT ALL. (In fact don’t make it a big deal, don’t make it BIGGER or GREATER than you, don’t make it a MAGIC spell for your life, don’t put it on a pedestal. Make it your normal.)
So get out of your head, decide what you want to commit to fully no matter what! And just do it, your energy is far better spent doing it, as more great ideas will come along, then sitting there, procrastinating, despairing, not following your heart, not allowing yourself to be you!
