- Consult Your Spirit Guides. There are scores of spirit guides who help us on Earth reclaim innate powers which we believe we lost due ham-handed upbringing and the resulting insecurities that they set up inside us. There’s a cosmos brimming with guides who exude unconditional love and wisdom who have elevated people just like you and me for as long as there has been a universe and sentient beings (humanoid and other) in it.
- Keep a Journal. Explore the genesis of your insecurities. Realize that they didn’t originate inside you. They were programmed into you by other insecure, fearful, or spiteful agents. You don’t have to claim them; they’re bugs, not features of your operating system. You’re free to delete them. They don’t belong to you. They never did.
In your journal, set your insecurity teachers free. They were damaged by whoever taught them about the world. Hurt people hurt people, quite often innocently and without meaning to. They lived with the consequences of the limits that insecurity built; you don’t have to.
- Find an Instructor, Hire a Guide, or Seek a Mentor. If someone you know has succeeded in the ways you’ll need to succeed to reach your goals, see if they’re willing to share with you their secrets for which steps to take to sidestep the mistakes they made and/or the top things they did on the way to reaching their level of success. Now that you’re more confident and committed to attaining your goals, you’ll start thinking about the people who took the path before you, whether you know them or not, so ask them. Most successful people love to be asked because a lot of personal and professional journeys are spellbinding, and most people don’t ask about them.
Successful people are a cornucopia of wit and wisdom about what worked and what didn’t and unless you’re seeking to beat them at their own game, most will be happy to spend some time filling in your knowledge and experience gaps.
One final note on insecurity. You don’t need to banish insecurity to defeat it. All you truly need to do is not let it stop you. We consider first responders and military personnel brave not because they are fearless, but because they rush in where angels fear to tread despite their level of anxiety about the situation and the very real risks they’re taking.
So, whatever your insecurity is trying to keep you from doing, do it anyway. That’s what successful people do. Lots of them are also afraid or insecure: they just don’t let it stop them from doing what they know they are here to do. I know of actors (Sir Laurence Olivier, one of the greatest of all time among them) and speakers who feel ill before every performance. They just don’t let their insecurities keep them from offering their gifts.
So, let the curtain on your tomorrow rise and step onto the stage. Get the help or instruction you need to perform at your best, nerves, insecurities, and all. Over time, as you discover that you that will survive the internalized ordeal, you will begin to relax and enjoy the process of nerves followed by accolades and victories, and then you’ll have others asking you how you did it.
Insecurity is just one of the results of early traumas that we all have to face throughout our lives in one form or another. How these traumas manifest, and when, actually shape us – spiritually, psychologically, and even physically. The key to overcoming these past traumas, to identify what is both drives us and holds us back subconsciously, is to identify your mind/body type first.
