That’s what happens to me whenever I face a task, a project, or a problem that I don’t think I’m good enough to handle.
You probably feel this very same fear, these bouts of self-doubt that hit you at different points in your freelancing career.
You think to yourself, ‘I’m not good enough to take on this project. I’m still new at this thing called freelancing!’
You see other freelancers and you’re certain they’re going to get the project, not you.
You’re reading the job description and feel discouraged to pitch because you’re not sure you’re qualified.
At the end of the day, you back out and stick to the sides where it’s safe and certain.
Here’s the hard truth though: this fear isn’t going to go away.
At least, not until you do something about it.
And the first step is to understand why this fear will always be around to haunt us, and why it’s silly to let it win.
