I was chatting with someone recently who was consumed by doubt. As I am not unfamiliar with this, I wanted to see what I could do to help him. The more we talked, the more he realized that he could replace doubt (based on lack of knowledge and experience) with curiosity.
As he became to sincerely ask question and REALLY listen, he became aware of the things he actually did know and understand – and his doubt diminished while his confidence grew.
In the end his doubt helped him increase his humility, openness, and ability to step back and be a “beginner” again.
Have a great day,
