Doubt Doesn’t Mean Don’t Do It

 In Faith, Fit, People, Redefining Wealth PODCAST, Work

Episode Summary:

Even powerful and successful women doubt themselves at times. Doubt has also become a common thread with women in my community. Sometimes, we think that people who are successful never have doubts or fears. The truth is everyone has doubts and fears, it’s just that the successful people choose to push through those doubts and move forward. In this episode, I will talk about doubt and give you three actionable ways to push through that doubt.

I also have a big announcement about the Purpose Chaser Community. You can sign up for free to connect with like minded people. Next month is financial literacy month where I’ll be doing a whole series about money management and tips.


  • People and women in general often think that people doing amazing things don’t have the same doubt and fears that they have.
  • Don’t let doubt creep in and distract you from making decisions and moving forward with your goals and progressing towards success.  
  • It’s up to us to decide that we are going to do whatever it takes to push through obstacles and our own fears.
  • Doubt is normal defeat is a choice. It’s normal to have doubt, but letting it stop you is a choice.
  • Let the benefit of the doubt apply to you. We give this benefit to others. It’s time to give it to ourselves.
  • Write out the worst case scenario and realize that’s not the worst thing that could happen.
