Overcome Self-Doubt

Stop the Self-Deprecating Humor and Start Seeing Your Success

Who at one point in their life hasn’t used a little self-deprecating humor to brush off a compliment or to down play a strength? Feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt are common during moments of weaknesses but do not let them take away from your accomplishments. In order to start seeing your success and recognizing that your accomplishments are indicative of your hard work, we must learn to embrace our strengths. Respond to compliments with simply a gracious “thank you” instead of an excuse (e.g. “I just got lucky”) or a self-deprecating joke (“I’m just really nerdy”). The article “How to Stop Feeling Like a Fraud (And Start Seeing Your Successes)” outlines ways to overcome self-doubt and improve your outlook on success.
