DITCH YOUR DOUBT
30 Days to Release Self-Doubt and Realise Your Dreams
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to move through life without constantly second-guessing yourself?
Without tying yourself up in knots because you’re not sure whether you’re making the right decision?
Without the incessant, exhausting tug of war between your heart and your head?
I get it! Because I’ve been there too.
Contrary to what you might believe, self-doubt is not a character flaw. Based on what I’ve observed, it’s an unhelpful side-effect of thinking too much. That’s why it tends to show up disproportionately in people who are highly intelligent.
As Bertrand Russell put it:
“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”
Paradoxically, people who experience self-doubt typically have a strong sense of their own capability and strengths, but this is distorted by an equal and opposite mental habit of questioning their own judgment.
You know what? I am tired of it. Literally and metaphorically.
I am so tired of it that I have spent the past few months collating my most effective tools and techniques for conquering the enemy within, and I’d like to offer you the opportunity to apply these resources in your own life during this FREE 30-day challenge.
By participating in this challenge, you will learn:
the different (sometimes subtle) ways in which self-doubt could be showing up in your thoughts, feelings and behaviour;
the difference between fear and self-doubt, why “fake it ‘til you make it” can do more harm than good, and what to do instead (hint: it involves being authentic);
the key mindset shift that will squash self-doubt and foster self-belief;
a variety of techniques for eliminating your limiting self-talk and creating the conditions for your growth and abundance!
Before you respond, think about this:
What might be possible for you if you weren’t bogged down by self-doubt?
What dreams have you shelved that might be recovered and given new life?
What difference would it make to your life and the lives of those you care about?
Let’s find out, shall we?!

What is an online challenge?
If you’re new to online challenges, it’s essentially a series of exercises (mini-challenges) that will be emailed to you every few days for you to complete in the privacy of your own home. You can also interact with me and other participants in a closed Facebook group if this appeals to you (more on that below).
What are mini-challenges?
They’re simple but powerful exercises that are designed to help you build your immunity to self-doubt. None of them are intended to be particularly scary or confronting (this is not aversion therapy!), but they will encourage you to stretch your thinking about yourself and how you respond to uncertainty. They’re also designed to be fun!
What if I don’t have time to do the mini-challenges every few days?
This is a self-paced challenge, which means that you can sign up for it anytime until 31 December 2018, and you can complete the mini-challenges in whatever timeframe works for you.
Why 30 days?
They say it takes 21-28 days to create a new habit. While this challenge isn’t so much focused around building habits, the idea is that engaging in regular mini-challenges over a 30-day period will help you build your awareness of how self-doubt is playing out in your life and give you options for managing it differently than you may have done in the past.
Being: the Change is all about sustainable solutions, not quick fixes that feel good for 48 hours before evaporating overnight.
What sort of people do this kind of challenge?
This challenge is for anyone who wants to BE, DO or HAVE more in their life and senses that they’re getting in their own way. My participants are typically professional and/or creative people who are after something that goes a bit deeper; not just a bunch of platitudes without any substance. They enjoy the ontological approach that integrates head, heart and body in a way that is grounded and not fluffy.
Is this a solo mission or can I share the journey with others?
There are two main ways to participate in this challenge:
Independently: You can participate independently, by simply working through the mini-challenges at your own pace. That’s fine - we won’t be offended. ;-)
Interactively: If you would like to participate more actively in the challenge, please join the Being: the Change Community on Facebook for the opportunity to connect with other participants and be supported by me personally during the challenge. This will be more fun - trust me! If you join the Community, you will have access to additional resources and inspiration. Importantly, the group is a place for you to share stories (both challenges and breakthroughs) with others and support each other to get the most out of the experience. It's a closed group, which means that your posts in the group can only be seen by other participants. Your posts will not appear on your timeline or your friends’ news feeds (unless they are also in the group).
Of course, you can also sign up with friends or colleagues, and share the journey together.
How do I sign up?
I’m so glad you asked!
It’s easy - just enter your name and email address above, and click “Register”. Then - and this is important - please check your inbox for a request to confirm your subscription. You’ll need to click on the link in that email to continue receiving the mini-challenges; it’s just a safeguard to ensure that you only receive the emails that you want to receive from me.
See you in the challenge!
