You cannot NOT suffer from self-doubt. As long as you are growing and changing, you will be faced with uncomfortable situations. And because your brain is wired to protect you from the potential threat of the unfamiliar, it will trigger the uncertainty and insecurity that stems from tackling the unknown. But how do you get past the self-doubt and reach your full potential? How do you eradicate this enemy between your ears?

On today’s edition of Women’s Empowerment School, Sylvia is teaching us how to fight back when self-doubt threatens our confidence. She discusses the mental, emotional and physical manifestations of self-doubt, explaining how growth and transformation serves as the trigger for those feelings.

She also reveals the hidden messages of celebration, encouragement and empowerment behind our self-doubt, explaining how to turn the stop signs into guide posts that help us move forward.
