The Conquering Self-Doubt IQ Matrix explores how to overcome the mental barriers currently holding you back from achieving your goals. At one point or another, we all experience self-doubt. Especially prevalent when life throws us a curveball when we were expecting a fastball. Yes, those are the times when we are faced with uncertainty and we struggle to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That is, of course, when our critical voice creeps in and we begin to doubt ourselves. That, in turn, destroys our self-confidence and any glimmer of hope we were holding onto.
Yes, these can certainly be challenging times. Not only are we faced with this tremendous setback, but we also now feel quite incapable of getting through it. Why are we this way? Why do we continue to doubt ourselves when things don’t go as planned? These are some of the questions that this map will help answer.
The mind map, specifically, outlines how self-doubt evolves over time. It lists down the surprising advantages that self-doubt can provide us with. It then walks you through a nine-step process you can use for overcoming self-doubt and for gaining more self-confidence and certainty in any situation. The map concludes by presenting you with additional guidelines and suggestions to help put your mind at ease when facing uncertainty. Working through this map will help you become surer of yourself, more decisive and confident when facing situations that would normally make you doubt yourself.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Conquering Self-Doubt mind map.
- Understanding Self-Doubt: The first branch of this map explores how self-doubt evolves and the surprising advantages that it can bring into our lives. We must, however, learn to harness it effectively.
- Overcoming Self-Doubt Process: The second and third branches of the map walk you through a nine-step process for overcoming self-doubt. Working through these steps will also help you gain more certainty and confidence. The steps of this process include (1) defining your desired outcome, (2) breaking down your psychological walls, (3) recalling prior accomplishments, (4) clarifying what’s required, (5) anticipating obstacles and opportunities, (6) creating a plan of action, (7) identifying compelling reasons to move forward, (8) controlling your critical voice, and (9) celebrating your success. At each step of this process, you are presented with self-reflection questions that will help you gain critical insights. This will, subsequently, help you work through this process far more effectively and smoothly.
- Conquer Your Self-Doubt: The final branch of this map presents you with a variety of guidelines you can immediately apply to help you effectively work through your doubts as they arise throughout the day. It’s, however, important that you consistently implement these ideas. That is the only way you will create appropriate habits-of-mind that will help you eradicate self-doubt from your life.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for working through your doubts when faced with the fear of uncertainty. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively become more decisive and confident when facing situations that would normally cause you to doubt yourself.
