Feeling as if you’re always making mistakes and that you’re just not good at anything is common, especially when we’re struggling with something new. It’s easy to feel incompetent and like a failure when we don’t know how to do something. The fact is, everyone has felt this way at some point. The key is learning how to deal with these feelings in a healthy way so that they don’t hold us back from reaching our goals.
You might have been told your whole life that you need to focus on one thing at a time. And for the most part, that’s true. However, there are times when you just can’t seem to get anything done. It feels like everything you try ends in failure and you can’t help but wonder what’s wrong with you. The truth sometimes is that there’s nothing wrong with you. You’re just feeling overwhelmed. When you have too much going on, it’s just natural to feel scattered and like you can’t do anything right.
We’ve all had moments where we feel like our best isn’t good enough.Maybe you’ve been passed over for a promotion at work, or your friends seem to be doing better than you. It can be frustrating and even overwhelming to feel like you can’t do anything right.
One reason this may be happening is because of your self-esteem. If you don’t believe in yourself, it’s going to be hard to accomplish your goals.
When you doubt your abilities, you’re more likely to give up when things get tough. Low self-esteem can also lead to anxiety and depression, which can further sabotage your efforts.
Another of the reasons is that you may feel like you can’t do anything right; you’re not giving yourself enough credit.
I came across a video clip very recently where a young man, while giving an appreciation speech after the close of an event appreciate every individual present and everyone he had encounter in the course of his pursuit.
He was about leaving when he turned back and said “most importantly, I can not but appreciate ME, I’m thanking ME for coming this far in spite of all challenges, I’m thanking ME for all the sacrifices I had to made to make this a success. Thank me.”
Funny right? but that’s actually the right thing to do.
It’s easy to focus on your mistakes and dwell on them, but it’s important to remember that everyone makes mistakes. Instead of beating yourself up over your faults, consider how you may utilize them to your advantage in the future.
