Getting Rid of the ‘Pink Panther’ Cloud of Doubt

by Travis Wrightpink panther

Do you remember the old Pink Panther cartoon where he would walk around all sad and the rain cloud would follow him everywhere? Anywhere he would walk, that rain cloud would only rain on him. Do you ever feel like that?

I liken this rain cloud of the Pink Panther as our own personal ‘Rain Cloud of Doubt’. Doubt can get the best of you and leave you in a state of insecurity. Sometimes its difficult to get rid of that doubt and lack of confidence, however with a new technique, perhaps you can overcome this and move forward with strength and belief in your ability to conquer whatever is in your path.

What is Doubt anyway? Is it fear of failure? Is it fear of not being accepted by others?

Maybe you are terrified of speaking in front of others? Well, I do this everyday at my job teaching technical training to students who are wanting to become web developers and graphic designers. I got up in front of hundreds of people in the 90′s when I did stand up comedy. And Im still alive, no mob of people attacked me due to my performance on the stage or with my presentation.

Are we worried about what other people think about us? Well, if I go and talk to 50 different people. Well, those 50 different people are gonna have 50 different opinions about me. I am unable to control how they feel about me, however, I can control how I feel about how they feel about me. It is a conscious choice to not let others bring you down which sometimes triggers a feeling of doubt in your own abilities.

You have to confidence in yourself to make things happen, and that when you do them, you are confident that they are going to be done to the best of your ability. Just have faith in yourself.

Okay, how can we rid doubt? How can we eliminate the feeling of fear in any situation? Well, first we have realize that it is all mental imagery anyway that is really laying the doubt on us. So we need to change the visual pattern of doubt to visual image of total confidence.

Here is a method that I devised to get out of the feeling of doubt:

First, I imagine that I have a “Pink Panther Rain Cloud of Doubt” over my head, clouding my thoughts with a cloud of doubt…. it is right above my head, and somewhat over my eyes. So, Im gonna take 3 breaths and ‘vacuum’ up this cloud of doubt by breathing it in, and imagining the doubt going through my body and OUT my belly button area in a lightning bolt!

On my first breath, I breathe in deeply and vacuum up about 1/3 of the cloud of doubt… maybe a bit more than 1/3 of the cloud. I then breathe out and imagine it Shooting a rocket fast lightning bolt from my core. I already begin to feel better after this step.

On the second breath, I breathe in deeply and capture about another 1/3 of the Rain Cloud of Doubt… again, it shoots out my belly with a fierce lightning bolt of energy, which revitalizes my whole existence.

And on the Final breath, I breathe in and vacuum up the small remainder of the Doubt Cloud and exhale this doubt through my belly with the fierest lightning bolt that I can imagine.

By then, I am competely devoid of doubt, and I feel that I can accomplish anything at that very moment. This works perfectly if you are getting ready to do something that you feel is very challenging and are a bit fearful of undertaking.

Try it out, its my gift to you. Lets rid ourselves of unwanted doubt by visualizing it turning into unbelieveably powerful confident energy.

Much Love-

Travis Wright
