I'm not saying self-doubt is something that will ever go away. Even the people you look up to and admire feel it from time to time: it's a natural human emotion. But it's important to recognize self-doubt as a part of life and be able to move past it. If you never take any risks you'll never get rejected, but you probably won't succeed either.
We live in a time where validation is huge. You tweet something funny, and you want people to retweet it. You post a picture of your new outfit on Instagram and you measure your self worth in number of likes. It's not good, but it's something we all do subconsciously. Oprah recently spoke about how after all of the interviews she's conducted over the years, the interviewee always turns to her afterwards and asks, "Was that okay?" (Even Beyonce, guys. Queen freakin' B doubts herself from time to time, too.)
