"It's interesting to write down all of the negative or limiting beliefs you can identify and then see if you can detect the original source," Taliaferro says. "Is this truly your thought, or is it a thought someone gave you? Do you truly believe you 'can't do it' or were you simply told you 'can't do it' as a kid?  Insecurity is a feeling. Feelings originate from thoughts. Some people feel helpless when they have a certain feeling, as if they are a victim and can't really control it. But see if you can identify the thought that led to the feeling. Then try to upgrade or change that thought, and your feelings will change." - Dallas Morning News, Getting to the root of your insecurities -- and how to fight them

Then she encourages them to remove several drains per week. “Taking charge of your life is always energizing,“ Taliaferro said. - Psych Central, 4 On-the-Spot Energy Boosters

"One of my mantras is: Be willing to be awkward if you want to create change. If someone is uncomfortable being insecure, they may shut down and stop trying. My advice is to be 100 percent OK with feeling insecure and then take action regardless. The insecurity will transform into confidence, since confidence comes from doing. That's a key point." - Dallas Morning News

"If you find yourself in the grip of insecurity, try literally gripping a pen, holding it horizontally. As you're gripping the pen, notice the insecure feeling you've been gripping," Taliaferro says. "Notice how this fear has shown up in the past week. Did your fear of not being good enough coax you to lower your standards in some way? Did it cause you to be silent during an important meeting? Simply notice -- don't judge yourself. Then set an intention to release the insecure feeling. As you do this, open your hand and release the pen. Notice how that felt. Repeating this exercise anytime you're feeling trapped by insecurity can help train your brain in the openness and relaxation it feels when you drop the pen and the insecurity." - Dallas Morning News
