I want to help people but I'm stuck with the belief that I may not succeed.
The questioner's philosophy
So you want to help people? Are you prepared to do the work necessary to achieve your goal?
Do you know what "courage" is? Courage is what we demonstrate when we face our fears and doubts and do the unimaginable anyway. That's right. It takes courage to assert our goals. It takes courage to face our fears. It takes courage to overcome our doubts.
How do we increase our level of courage? By sharing our hopes and dreams with reasonable people, people who are open to the kinds of ideas we are playing with. If you want to be lifted up, talk to people who are positive and have faced some challenges in their own lives. Do not share your ideas with people who are stuck and want you to remain stuck.
If you want to help people you have to help yourself first. Yes, being a coach or therapist means you have to get to know yourself at a deep level. That means facing your fears and doubts and working through them. That means getting all the right resources that will benefit your personal growth. That means uncovering all the gifts God placed inside of you.
If you want this - then go for it. Who cares what others think. They can stay stuck in their own psychological muck. You want more. So go for it!
