Is doubt or self doubt second name to you? Do you believe that asking questions is a better way than giving answers to somebody?

Then there is a high probability you are in your mid twenty or at least still under a hangover of it.

Most mid-twenties have an immense sense of awareness about their past failures and mistakes. And one learning that cuts across all is that they feel they trusted something or somebody too quickly. Hence risk taking ability reduces and the drive to doubt all increases by leaps and bounds.

Excess of everything is bad. So where blind trust is detrimental, doubt hampers progress. A balance of both can result in huge amounts of success.

Firstly why do mid twenties doubt everything? Or ask questions at every juncture? Because they have baggage, they have carried their failures on their shoulder and the thought of another one scares them. Hence every single step they veer into is a conscious one, a backed up one.

This of course results in them losing out on many other things. People don’t have patience and hence don’t entertain a lot of questions and life doesn’t wait for too long for your doubts to subside, opportunities run away.

What must one do?

Identify what you need to know only on the basis of present coordinates. Past is irrelevant for future plans
Doubts may be used constructively, not to avoid a plan but to enhance it. Positively frame or inquire questions
Doubt may still be dealt with but self doubt can never be. Believing in yourself is the first step, and forgiveness is its pre-cursor
Remember this time too no amount of questions can promise perfection. Failures are part of life

You tell us, do you too ask many questions? Do you believe you can only operate once backed up with data or assurances?
