Is self-doubt something you struggle with as a musician? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
4 THOUGHTS FROM ME
1. Everyone has self-doubt, but some are better at hiding it than others. Talking about it with friends or fellow artists is the best way to ‘cure it’ since insights from other people can help you find a path you weren’t seeing before. What helped them get out of it may be what will help you get out of it, but you won’t know unless you talk about it.
2. Self-doubt is/will be a constant in your life and you should take the positives out of it. If it comes to you, take it as a sign that something is not working and as an opportunity to reevaluate your work, progress, and strategy. These moments of vulnerability are the ones that make you stronger if you deal with them.
3. Self-doubt often happens when a goal you wanted to achieve is not going according to your plan. If that’s your case, question if your goals have changed or if you’re just questioning your ability to achieve them. You won’t know how to solve it unless you know the root cause of it.
2 QUESTIONS FOR YOU
1. How did you deal with your last moment of self-doubt? Did you ignore it, or did you take lessons out of it? You’ll only learn if you face it!
2. If you’re going through it right now, has your goal changed, or are you questioning your abilities to achieve it? Maybe, a change of strategy is what is necessary.
PS. As this is a delicate subject, feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk about it with me, and boy, I’ve gone through massive ones. Honestly, almost left music in 2019, but that led me to rethink my strategy and create a new alias… and I’m REALLY excited about it.
