A little known secret about creation is that even the best creators doubt themselves in the process of creation.  At first they get excited about the desire to create something and what it will feel like when their desire becomes a reality.


Then almost immediately after the excitement starts to fade, genuine doubt sets in.  What if I can’t actually do it?  What if I tell people and don’t deliver?  What about all the people who will be counting on me?  What if I am not as good as I think I am? What if I just fail?  And the doubting questions continue.

So right from the start, instead of focusing all of your energy on manifesting your creation, you are diverting energy into fighting fears that have seeped into your consciousness.  It happens to almost everybody, although most of us feel like we are alone when this difficult pattern emerges that derides our creation attempts.

This past week I was in NY working with the leader of our NY office and I sensed he was experiencing this exact pattern.  He is smart, focused, talented and self-assured.  He is genuinely confident that our NY sales office will be a great success, yet the fears of bringing it to fruition and the pressure to launch this entirely new sales division are wearing on him.  So I shared a lesson I recently received from a mentor of mine of how to shift the pattern and deal with the doubt that crushes creation.

It is actually simple.  When you begin to have a thought or desire and can actually feel the excitement of your desire manifesting into reality, just stay there.  See it more clearly.  Hold that space and just smile and enjoy.  Just know it is true.  Skip that whole doubt step.  It doesn’t serve you and it creates so much resistance against the desire you want to create.  There is literally no need to protect yourself against a failure that has yet to happen.
