Episode #158: The Four C’s Of Overcoming Self-Doubt

Join us today as Colleen Interview’s Alison Jacobson on Take the Leap. In this episode, we delved deep into the topic of conquering self-doubt and designing a life filled with confidence, joy, and success. Here are three key takeaways from our enlightening conversation:

1. The Four C’s of Conquering Self-Doubt:

Alison shared with us the four essential steps to conquer self-doubt: Courage, Clarity, Confidence, and Consistency. These four pillars serve as a roadmap to overcoming self-doubt and achieving your goals. By embracing courage, gaining clarity on your purpose, building confidence, and maintaining consistency in your actions, you can navigate through self-doubt and emerge stronger than ever.

2. Celebrating Small Wins Along the Journey:

One powerful lesson from Alison’s experience running the New York City Marathon was the importance of celebrating small victories along the way. Whether it’s completing a mile run or launching a new business venture, acknowledging and celebrating each small win can fuel your motivation and keep you moving forward towards your ultimate goal. Remember, every step forward, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction.

3. Surrounding Yourself with a Supportive Circle:

Alison emphasized the significance of surrounding yourself with a supportive and empowering circle of individuals. Whether it’s joining a women’s circle, networking with like-minded professionals, or seeking guidance from mentors, having a strong support system can uplift you during challenging times and provide valuable insights and encouragement on your journey to success.
