In my early days of career, after being promoted consecutively three years in a row, with a best associate award, followed by my parents receiving a letter of appreciation from the firm for upbringing me into a best individual.
I instead of being happy, was more confused than ever before.
The question I kept asking myself was – Do I deserve it?
Do I deserve it?
& Why was that? Because I was suffering from Self-Doubt
Self-doubt is a state of mind, dissatisfied with oneself, questioning our potential or a new found success, in order to feed the mind with the correct rationale
Self-doubt is one of the very first thing we may fall back into, especially when we taste success, indicating our deep sense of insecure self and faulty indoctrinated beliefs which rules our mind and heart, like a strict guard preventing and prohibiting us to enjoy what we truly deserve.
My self-doubt not only killed the precious moment of my hard-earned success, which I regret till date, but also kept me coveting and comparing myself to the others, staying all enveloped in a confused state of overthinking and baseless analysis.

Before you leave, can you spare a minute and answer this?
Recall, in the recent past, did you just like me, find yourself filled with self-doubt,
especially on an occasion, when you were successful.
when it was time to celebrate , but you held yourself back from fully enjoying it
If your answer to either of it is a yes, then my friend, I just want you to let you know, that do not let (self -doubt) take root in your mind, before it does, weed it out, and if you do not know, how that is done, connect here.
