No matter how much you’ve achieved or how well your business is doing, everyone grapples with a little selfdoubt now and then. Perhaps you’re struggling to master a new skill or you just lost out on a big deal, and you’re questioning whether you’re really cut out for this.

It’s normal to feel frustrated in when things aren’t going as planned, but it’s important to not let these obstacles detract from everything you’ve achieved. Here’s how nine members of Young Entrepreneur Council overcome their feelings of selfdoubt and get back on the road to confidence.

Members share a few ways you can tackle — and overcome — doubts.Photos courtesy of individual members

1. Write In A Journal

I turn to journal and positive inspiration readings. I read some of my previous journaling, write more and I read some positive quotes, articles, etc. I don’t let self-doubt consume me; instead, I tackle it head on and work hard to get on the other side of it. — Jess MoseleyTCS Interpreting

2. Tackle A Creative Project

Finding the joy in your small business can be tough, especially when you feel all alone. I try to focus on a clear, creative project to help overcome self-doubt. It reminds me of what is important, and why I started this crazy journey! — Lizzy Jane Newsome YoppKappa Toys

3. Remember That You’re Not Alone

I remind myself that some of the most successful men and women in the world doubted themselves at one time or another. Doubt is a normal human reaction. It’s what we do with it that counts. — Dalia MacPheeDALIA MACPHEE

4. Remind Yourself Of Your Good Intentions

When self-doubt creeps in, I remind myself that my intentions are good and that because of this fact, nothing I do can ever go “wrong.” — Amanda Jacqueline, Higher Realms Consulting

5. Gather Kind Words From Your Peers

A few simple words of encouragement from a friend or colleague can go a long way. I keep a file of complimentary hand-written notes and emails that I’ve received over the years. On a tough day, I find it helpful to turn to that file. Remembering the people I’ve helped over the years and the kind things they’ve said always leaves me feeling recharged. — Jackie Ducci, Ducci & Associates

6. Reflect On What You’re Grateful For

When self-doubt creeps in, I stop, reset and clear my mind of any fear-based thoughts. I then set my intentions for just that day. I end the exercise with writing down 10 to 15 things I am grateful for. It is easy to get caught up in the small details and setbacks, but this is a reminder that the big picture is built from gratitude. — Hillary HobsonHighest Cash Offer

7. Find The Root Cause Of Your Fear

Self-doubt forces me not to take things for granted and to double check assumptions. Breaking down and reflecting on the root cause(s) of the fear and assessing if that fear is rational and addressable has been helpful for me as well. — Pokin Yeung, Absolute Games

8. Revisit Your Past Accomplishments

I keep a list of my accomplishments nearby and turn to them whenever I start to doubt myself. I also practice giving myself positive affirmations. It’s a skill I learned later in life and practice daily with my son. — Amber Anderson, Tote + Pears

9. Determine An Action Step That Will Move You Forward

I ask myself questions like, “why am I doubting my abilities?” or “what can I do to fix this in order to be confident without doubting myself?” Once I determine why I am doubting myself, I will do more research, become more prepared, or do something that forces me out of my comfort zone. Once I am out of my comfort zone and accomplish something, typically the self-doubt leaves on its own. — Taylor Irwin, Rocky Mountain Car Wash
