Often, thoughts of self-doubt come when you compare yourself to someone else. Resolve in advance not to let this happen.

Remember the Past is the Past

Many people experience self-doubt when thinking about the past. Whenever the past comes up in your mind, remind yourself that it is over and done with. If you dwell on the past, it will make self-doubt worse.

Look towards the future and all of the plans you have instead. It can also help to list all the things you are grateful for in the present.

Remind Yourself that Failures are Lessons

Everyone will have failures at some point in their life. This is inevitable. When you experience a failure, you will likely have some thoughts of self-doubt.
