5 Ways to Use Your Inner GPS to Overcome Doubt and Worry

Here are five ways you can use your inner GPS to overcome doubt and worry, so you can gain more clarity and make better decisions.

1. Practice meditation daily

This is the quickest and easiest way to access your inner GPS. You can do this any time and receive answers that will keep you moving forward.

A key aspect of meditation is to notice your breathing and train yourself to observe your thoughts without being attached to them. Meditating for as little as five minutes daily will make a difference.

2. Notice your emotions anytime you’re triggered

Your thoughts cause your feelings, so anytime you react to something, pay attention to what you’re thinking. Question your thoughts and what you believe to be true.

For example, if you doubt your ability to do something, ask yourself why you believe that. When you question your thoughts and beliefs, you will gain new insights and awareness.

3. Be totally honest with yourself

Even though people like to think they’re honest, they often lie to themselves. People buy into their lies, which can include why they cannot do something.

Being honest with yourself involves contemplation and challenging your preconceived ideas about yourself, others, and what’s possible for you.

4. See situations from multiple perspectives

You may see a situation one way, while another person may see the same situation differently. If you’re experiencing doubt and worry, consider how someone else would deal with your situation.

How would they resolve it? That will allow you to practice using your perspective to overcome your problems.

5. Consider how your best self will deal with doubt and worry

You have unique gifts and qualities. The best version of yourself will deal with problems better than the version that’s overcome by fear, doubt, or worry.

A question you can ask is, “How would my best self or my higher self deal with this situation?” You will receive powerful insights, which will help you handle anything you’re going through.

Final Thoughts

You have a power within you that can help you navigate through life. It’s available to you right now and you don’t need special tools or techniques to access it.

All you need is to quieten your mind, ask for guidance, and allow insights to come through.

Action Step: If you’re dealing with a challenging situation that’s causing you to experience doubt and worry, give yourself at least five minutes to be quiet and ask for a solution or the next step you need to take. Make this a daily practice and aim to give yourself more quiet time.
