Mike Murphy Definition:

Two Faces of Self-Doubt

  1. The dictionary definition of self-doubt is for people with low or no self-esteem and this can only be overcome when you are able to give yourself a break and learn to respect and love yourself more. This is real and not easy. I’ve had my low moments and can be self-deprecating and hard on myself and it’s not fun. You will not move forward or be able to help others until you fix and appreciate yourself. Self-awareness and honesty will be the best way to get better. A little self-love goes a long way.
  2. The Mike Murphy definition of self-doubt is for the podcasters, creatives, freelancers, personal brands and dreamers hoping to make a dent in the universe, but let others discourage them and cause them to give up too early. This is fear and impatience disguised as self-doubt.
