It has been said time and time again that “DOUBT” is not a good thing and it can be crippling to the mind and spirit. I am not going to say that it isn’t true for some but, I will say that it all depends on how you look at it. Our actions determine our mindset and our mindset determines our actions.
I have adapted a concept for life as being a “LEARNING JOURNEY”…everything that happens to me in my life I choose to use it as an opportunity to learn from each experience. I ask myself, “How can I use this experience to learn and grow?” I do that through the power of “DOUBT”.
Doubt was meant for you to ask questions, not only ask the questions, but with the intent to find or seek the answers to those questions. Once you have the answers to those questions, what then will you do with them? We are beings of natural instincts and learning is something we all do everyday. If there is anything that isn’t clear, don’t be content to settle with your uncertainty. Try asking yourself such questions as:
Why am I uncertain? – Why am I uneasy? – Why am I so comfortable? – What is my purpose? – What should I do now? – How can I use this experience to grow? – Etc.
Once doubt starts creeping into your mind and you start asking these questions, don’t be so quick to dismiss them because sometimes it just may be that intuition or instinct trying to steer you in a different direction. You will be amazed at just how the answers will start forming and clarity will abound.
There is just something about delving into the unknown. When the unknown becomes a discovery, it is then that you begin to uncover or unlock your mind.
Doubt is good if you want it to be so therefore; I say, “Go ahead and DOUBT IT!”
