The Mighty Unconscious Mind

Self-doubt is the feeling of uncertainty. Confidence I the feeling of certainty.

Both are feelings. Thoughts create feelings.

If you are having constant negative thoughts about yourself, your self-doubt gets momentum. But, on the flip side, having favorable thoughts about yourself, your confidence will get momentum.

It is easy to argue that you just have to change your thoughts, right?

The problem is the fact that 90% of your thoughts comes from your subconscious mind. And your self-doubt gains momentum without you even being aware of it.

Whichever thoughts you choose to believe about yourself, will create a sense of comfortzone in your brain.

That is why it is so difficult to change ones’ beliefs. What you know now is certain. What is uncertain is that future that you are creating, so your brain is going to work hard to keep you in the certainty of the familiar.

Your brain is constantly taking in situations, circumstances and other people’s behaviour and interpreting it through a lens. A lens filtered by your own preconceived beliefs, ideas and memories.

Therefore, your subconscious mind causes you to feel emotionally and physically uncomfortable whenever you attempt to do anything different than your established patterns of behavior.

Your brain will give you all the reasons why not to move out of its zone of uncertainty, like; “you are not good enough, you will fail at this, what will people say?” Pulling you back toward your comfort zone each time you try something new.

At first, moving out of your zone of certainty will feel uncomfortable. So often people stop themselves because they think it's wrong to feel uncomfortable. If you feel uncomfortable, you are doing it right. That is the definition of growth. That is how you turn doubt into confidence.

A good place to start is by unravelling those unconscious messages your brain sends you. Then you use your conscious mind to reprogram your subconscious mind.
