How To Deal With Self Doubt (Motivational Video)
– The amount of times when I was, just waking up in the middle of the night, also due to jet lag, but worried about my future in literal fear, infinite. I’ve had these times so many times, I’ve had this like every other day, where I would just wake up in fear, not even doubt, but it was fear, like, “Where’s this gonna go?” “What do I do if this doesn’t work out?” Like, “How can I pay for the next food like I?” I was scared.
But you know what I did every time I was scared? I opened my laptop, and I went to work. I would just work until I felt better, you know, that’s something that I’ve always had. And the beautiful thing is sometimes people say, like, “Oh, Max, like you’re only making money, because of your brand.
” “You’re only making money, because you’ve had mentors and so and so forth.” Of course, it’s true. That’s the point? Get a mentor, god dammit. Don’t try to deal with these things alone. I’m here because I’ve had great mentors, but I also was able to actually implement, the things that these mentors told me.
And there’s other people who had the same mentors, who were not nearly, as successful as I was, because I put in the work. So take everything away from me. Take away my brand, take away the money, take away all my assets, take it all away.
At rock bottom is where I feel, by far most confident and comfortable. I have been at rock bottom for years. You think I give a damn about the watches I have? You think I really, deep down inside, give a damn if I’m working here, in this home office, or if I’m working at some stinky, Airbnb, sleeping on a couch.
I don’t give a damn, take it all away from me. I’ll be able to work myself back up, because I have the work ethic. That’s all I’ve ever had. I wasn’t particularly talented, I’m not good with numbers. I don’t have the entrepreneurial spirit.
I’ve never even, thought about having a business. I didn’t understand nothing. I had no clue. So this is not some guy, who was always entrepreneurially minded, who just kind of did it. This is about a regular folk, person who just stumbled in it, and then started taking responsibility, and then starting to, put in the god Damn work, and then continuing the work, regardless of what’s going on up there, in his brain, the worry, the fear, the self doubt, none of this matters.
Go let it fuel you, and get to work. You might complain right now, because others are doing better than you. That so-and-so makes it look so easy. Maybe you think like a Max does it makes it look so easy? Yes, for me it god damn is, because I have nothing else, and this is all I’ll ever have, putting in the work.
So please understand, if you’re doubting yourself, that’s normal. Everybody’s doubting themselves. I’m doubting myself. I’m pretty sure that god damn Michael Jordan, doubted himself every single day, when he was about to, become the MVP for the fourth consecutive role, or whatever.
everybody doubts themselves, please don’t let Hollywood, or the mainstream narrative, make you feel isolated. Please don’t let them make you feel ashamed, that you’re not confident. I would go as far as to say, the more self-doubt you have the better, right? Just that stuff can actually make you work, and work is the only thing, that will get you to the end goal.
Have a clear goal, have a clear path that you can follow. Ideally have someone that has followed that path, has created that path, and you just have to execute that and then go get to work. (soft music)
