Ditch The Doubt

“If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you’re not sure you can do it, say yes -then learn how to do it later”-Richard Branson

TGIF all!

Self doubt can be a mofo.  It can leave for weeks and then suddenly reappear at the wrong time.   This happened to me recently.   Last week I received  an email from Banana Republic inviting me to participate in their latest campaign. At first I was like “oh yeah!” but soon my excitement gave way to doubt.  I doubted that I could participate because as a plus size woman, I couldn’t fit the majority of their clothing.  Although I own several items of clothing from Banana Republic, my self-doubt had me feeling like  I couldn’t participate.   I also think I was a little intimidated about participating because this was my first time being approached by a non plus brand to be apart of a campaign.  For a split second I thought about declining  but something inside me said “nope!”.  I pushed my doubt aside and explained to Banana Republic that while I don’t fit the majority of their clothes, I can fit  their sweaters, wear their shoes, bags and accessories.  I was pleasantly surprised that despite this,  they picked me to be apart of the campaign.   Overcoming my self-doubt was a big victory for me.  I’m going to continue to work through my self doubt so I  can take advantage of  every opportunity comes my way.

If you too are struggling with self-doubt, know that you are not alone and that change is possible!

Have a wonderful weekend!
