Doubt, it’s easy to let it overcome you and eat you up, isn’t it? But you mustn’t let it.

You must fight it.

You must not fear rejection, failure or being wrong.

You must realise that this worry, this concern of not being appreciated or actually not being understood, is simply part of the process, the journey to success.

Easier written/said than done I know.

I wrote this post on Pushing Through the Self Doubt a while ago which might help those feeling at a stumbling block-but back to recent events and the purpose of this post, right here.

Last week, I spoke on a panel at the British Library with some incredibly gifted creative entrepreneurs in a workshop titled ‘Pram in the Hall: Balancing Motherhood with Running a Business‘.

It was a packed house and Start Up voted it as one of the top 10 workshops celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week prior to it even commencing. No pressure then!

The other speakers included my great friend and business partner Jessica Huie MBE (Colourblind Cards and Jessica Huie PR),  Kerrie Dorman ( Serial entrepreneur-The Restaurant Mentors) and novelist Melissa Addey.

Each speech given, moved me greatly, these were women owning their ambition, achieving, running multiple businesses in some cases, working with some of the world’s biggest stars, writing books, starting creative projects, and, like myself, all in a way that works around their families.

Melissa wrote her book ‘101 Things To Do While Breastfeeding’, while, you guessed it, breastfeeding. Go check out Melissa’s super blog The Pram in the Hall too.

After I spoke about my own journey, from TV and film director to feeling lost on maternity leave after a traumatic birth with my first son, to now, full time blogger with a team, Jessica kindly uttered these three words to me, ‘Never doubt yourself’.

It made a real impact. Like everything Jessica says, does to me. I admire her greatly, for all that she has achieved, for always seeing opportunity in everything, for being a lady of great strength, intellect and more than anything, goodwill and kindness, of seeing the best in others.

These are all qualities I hope others see in me too.

That’s what I love so much about Jess, she possesses the characteristics I admire and always aspire to.

After the session, we panellists chatted to the women and men who had gathered there, so many, keen to take risks, work flexibly, start new businesses, blogs, prospective entrepreneurs eager but who felt held back. Some later revealed they felt scared, not confident, consumed with self-doubt and worry. I related to their words. I understood their fears. No one is spared of those times of feeling weak, not worthy, insecure.

After chatting to one lady in attendance, she sent me this touching email,  ‘It was great to meet you last night. What an inspiring evening! The panel was fantastic, and thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us afterwards. After our conversation I feel like I’ve become ‘unstuck’ and can move forward. I’ve been bouncing around all day!’

There’s nothing more rewarding than feeling you’ve somehow empowered others.

It is important to note that confidence is a con really, those you might feel, are always the most confident, are not, we are simply good at giving ‘confident face’.

The truth is though, the more you practice feigning that confidence, the more you fool yourself, until ultimately, you believe in you too. Then something amazing happens, others follow suit, more opportunities come and your projected view of yourself and real one (achieving your goals) meet.

Before you know it, you have become untouchable, determined, STRONG.

And for the most part, I feel that way, I really do, because I work on it, on the positive affirmations, on the ‘putting my hopes into action’, of consistently working on my self-belief and worth, on the hard graft, on honing my voice, my skills, embracing the challenges, accepting the inevitable failures but pushing on and trying, more determined after a fall to get up again and hopefully thrive.

But not always.

Yesterday, I was trolled on this blog, pretty badly. The commenter is now blocked and I’m over it today, but of course it hurt me at the time.

A faceless commenter whose address had a man’s name in it, leaving vitriol about me, untrue assumptions stemming from a place of hatred, and worse, directed at my kids too.

Of course it upset me, I’m only human but it will not leave a lasting footprint.

It won’t prevent me from doing what I love, or change me.

It won’t stop me from sharing our lives, being open, genuine, honest and real.

And the response to the hatred?

An outpouring of love, of support and kindness received on my Facebook Page, a reminder of the good online, in life.

As I commented over there too, ‘Good people of the internet: 1, Troll: 0’.

This little skirmish of course is nothing in comparison to the real tragedy in the world, the loss of innocent lives daily, the pain, the hurt, isolation and abuse that goes on to so many, that breaks my heart.

As the wise words of Fred Rogers states though we must, ‘Always look for the helpers’ in these times, the kind ones, those championing, and wanting good. They are who matter.

We must practise kindness too, making it our default, towards others, and also to ourselves. We must not let the doubters, the naysayers, or our very own self-doubt cripple and destroy us.

We must know our worth.

We must realise our potential.

Creativity, passion, ambition, and self-worth are the lifeblood of successful businesses, and in my opinion, of fulfilment and happiness.

Whatever you choose to do, whatever road you decide to take, and are taking because you are a proactive protagonist in your own narrative remember, (the power is within you), do what makes you happy and remember that anything is possible when you set your mind to it. There are no limits!

Now, folks, let’s do this!

    Great inspiring post hun, when I attended Blogfest this weekend I had a minor confidence crisis. I desperately wanted to talk to one of the speakers but after listening to her I hurried away and wanted to hide. I felt I could never measure up. Now though, after tweeting with her and believing in myself, I realise I was silly. I can do it, I just need to believe in myself and work hard. That belief or confidence is sometimes very hard to keep hold of but if we can fake it, even for a bit, we’ll get there. Brilliant post hun. xx Thanks for sharing.

    Oh Vicki love, I missed the skirmish over this vile person, yet look at what it has resulted in – this incredible post, one of my all time favourites of yours (although it is hard to choose!), and it has elicited vast amounts of positivity and renewed your strength! Trolls as we all know are pitiful human beings – as is anyone who uses their precious time on this planet to belittle any one else – and their negativity only generates negative karma for themselves and never anything good. Thankyou for your honesty, for being raw, for being confident, for the times when you feign confidence and inspire others. You are a force of nature sweetie, and this excellently written post just laughs in the face of any negativity! Love you xxx

    Hi Vicki, I used to be a great believer that ‘we can make anything happen if we set our mind to it’ and ‘dreams are there to make happen’, but somewhere along the line I lost that drive and started to doubt myself.

    I would have loved to have listened to your speech, hearing what others have to say and how they changed their way of thinking can be a great motivation.

    Not letting nasty, snide people get you down is easier said than done, but I hope you fully succeed to put that troll behind you. On the positive side your experience has bought a lot of good out in people, which is always a good thing.

    I love the phrase don’t doubt yourself. I am on a long journey and have also had troll messages which have not been nice. I’m growing in confidence and posts like these really do help give me a boost. In the last few weeks, i’ve had some small improvements in my health and this combined with winning an award has boosted me and i’ve noticed i’m wearing nice clothes again and doing my makeup every few days- something that had gone dormant a long time ago. I will keep on believing that I can make it as a blogger and follow your fabulous advice.

You are a bright light in a grey sky. Last week I came to your talk at the British Library and you were so full of positivity, support, kindness, generosity and inspiration.

    I really wish I didn’t doubt myself so much. The thing is, I KNOW I am good at my job, but yet, a new person being employed who also has musical skills makes me feel that somehow they will want to replace me with her- despite the fact I have a track record of outstanding teaching, I can still feel that in my head, even though I know that is total rubbish! And that though I am a musician, I am not good enough and someone else should be in my flute place in my orchestra- it’s so stupid and I wish I could stop myself thinking such things- I will TRY though! Even blogging, I doubt myself and yet, I’ve been doing it for almost 11 years!!!! Crazy eh! Amazing what the mind tries to trick you into! I hope all is well with you!

      Oh darling, it is totally normal, being creative means being riddled with self doubt but you must keep practising (as you would an instrument) believing in yourself and portraying confidence until you feel it. Not so much fake it to make it, but value the skills you have and your place. Also something a wise lecturer once told me, was to visualise the worst eventuality-confront it head on-in your case, being replaced. And then? You will find another position, it will open new roads, experiences, with every rejection or turn in events comes opportunity. There is nothing to fear xx
