There is nothing worse than feeling insecure at home, on the job and even with friends you’ve known all your life. Sometimes there is no underlying clue as to why you aren’t secure in who you are as a person or in the things you’ve accomplished in life, but the fact is, insecurity can ruin your life if you don’t get a handle on it and recognize it for what it is. In short, it’s time to let go of those feelings and start a new chapter in your life. Take a few positive steps as outlined below and you will begin to recognize what triggers those feelings inside so that they never need surface again.
Help Is Out There For The Asking
One thing you may want to do is seek professional counseling. Help is out there and there are clinical psychologists who can help you work through these feelings of insecurity. Are you afraid you are going to lose your job to someone more qualified? If so, a counselor can help you work through those feelings and if they are based on real factors, they can help you become more qualified as well!
Further Your Education
Let’s look for a moment at your job related insecurities. Could it be that you really want to advance in your career, but are afraid to take the next step? Why not register at a school like Northeastern University where you can enroll in an online MBA degree program. You don’t need to fear losing your job if you take time off to study because that won’t be necessary. You can get an advanced degree, a masters in business administration online, and never miss a day at work.
By gaining that advanced degree you will realize a life’s dream and some of those feelings of insecurity may just melt away in the process. In other words, by realizing a goal you’ve always had you will see that you have the strength within you to do what you set out to do. Nothing can help you feel better about yourself, more secure in who you are, than to accomplish what you set out to do.
Positive Affirmations In Moments Of Self Doubt
Sometimes you just need to talk yourself through those moments of self-doubt. Eastern mysticism teaches positive affirmations that you can call up when in need of strength and encouragement. It’s like the children’s book, The Little Engine that Could, chugging itself up the hill to its own little mantra “I think I can. I think I can,” and by encouraging itself with positive affirmations it reached the top of the hill. It’s one you can learn.
It’s time to banish those insecurities and the fear of failure that is actually the root cause of your inability to move forward in life. You can be the master of your own destiny by simply reaffirming that you have within you the strength to do what you need to do, the knowledge necessary to get it done and the compassion to empower others on your journey to the top. Wherever you go in life, remember that you hold the power so let go of those insecurities that are holding you back. Sometimes it’s only a matter of telling yourself, “I think I can. I know I can. Yes, I knew I could.” And, you did.
