The root of the fear.

The root of the fear is not being enough.

The fear of not being enough is rooted in a lack of self-love. Self-love is important because it allows us to accept ourselves and others. It is the foundation of all other forms of love (including romantic and platonic), personal growth, appreciation for art and culture–everything good in life!

Do it anyway.

So, what can you do?

  • Focus on the present. The past is gone, and the future hasn’t happened yet–you can’t control either of them. You can only control how you react to what happens in the here and now, so focus on that instead of worrying about things that haven’t happened yet (or are out of your control).
  • Take action! If there’s something you want to do but feel like it’s too much for you right now, don’t let that stop you from doing something small, just so long as it gets one foot in the door so that eventually those big dreams become attainable goals instead of pipe dreams forever lingering in your mind like an annoying mosquito buzzing around at dusk while everyone else is enjoying summertime activities outside together because they had no fear or doubt holding them back from achieving their goals earlier on down life’s path…

Celebrate past successes.

When you’re feeling down and out, it’s easy to forget about all the great things in your life. You might feel like nothing matters anymore–but that’s not true! You have achievements and successes that are worth celebrating, even if they seem small compared with other people’s accomplishments. Here are some ways you can celebrate:

  • Celebrate your past accomplishments. If you’ve accomplished something significant in the past (such as graduating from college), list everything that went into achieving that goal and reflect on how proud you feel now that it’s done!
  • Celebrate other people’s successes by congratulating them or sharing their stories online so others can be inspired by them too!
  • Or maybe there was a moment when everything seemed okay again after feeling bad for such a long time…celebrate those moments, too!

Use positive language.

You can overcome your fear of being insufficient by using positive language and affirmations. Positive language is when you use words that describe what you want rather than what you don’t want or are afraid of. For example, instead of saying, “I’m not good enough,” say, “I am capable.” Instead of saying, “I’m afraid I won’t get this job,” say, “I’m excited about the opportunity.”

A positive affirmation is a statement that affirms something about yourself or your life that is true for you at this moment in time–and can be repeated over and over again throughout the day until it becomes part of who we are as individuals! Here are some examples:

  • I am strong when faced with challenges.
  • I am kindhearted towards others even when they aren’t kind back to me first (or ever).
  • My dreams do come true one day, every single one!

Surround yourself with people who love, support, and challenge you.

  • Be open to criticism.
  • Ask for help when you need it.
  • Find people willing to challenge you but also support and love you.

You are enough just as you are right now!

You are enough just as you are right now!

You have much to offer the world and it’s time to start believing in yourself. You may feel like your life is not going how it should but remember: it’s not about what has happened or what could happen in the future; it’s about how we choose to live our lives today.

Our perspective on events determines how we feel about ourselves and others around us. If we focus on our shortcomings instead of on all of our strengths, then that’s where our energy goes–and this can lead us down a path where self-doubt becomes rampant and self-confidence dwindles ultimately. But when we can see ourselves through clearer eyes (and maybe even ask someone else), everything suddenly changes!

In the end, it’s time to start the process of overcoming the fear of not being enough.

You are enough just as you are right now! You don’t need to be perfect or have it all figured out. You don’t need to be a certain way or have certain things for your life to be meaningful. All that matters is what you do with what you have–and that is up to each of us individually. So take a deep breath and remember that this moment, right here, right now: that’s where we find our power.
