Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (2024)

Happy Motivation Monday! Last week we celebrated ourselves, and this week’s theme is related, but not the same. When I talked about celebrating ourselves, it was about looking at things we have already accomplished and pausing to recognize the wonderful things that we have done.

This week, I’d like you to think about the self-doubt that inhibits you from taking action towards accomplishing your goals in the first place. So many times, we let self-doubt overshadow our self-confidence, derail us from moving forward, and feel uncomfortable with ourselves. I’m sure you’ve been there: whether it was walking into a crowded room and thinking everyone might be looking at you because you looked stupid or were doing the wrong thing, giving a presentation at work and doubting that your boss would be impressed (despite the hours of hard work you poured into it), or telling yourself that there’s no way you’ll be able to eat healthily for a week or stop bingeing after dinner.

If you think about it, in most situations, that self-doubt does nothing but hurt you. You may still achieve your goal, but what if you had not spent the time and mental anguish worrying about how youcouldn’t orwouldn’t before actually achieving? What if you felt truly confident in your abilities, your body, your personality? I challenge you to make that happen today – and all of this week – by recognizing and admitting your self-doubt, and squashing it with your self-confidence.(picture source)

I mentioned in my Brazil recap that I used to struggle (and still do, although I’ve improved a lot!) with negative self-talk. After a great conversation with Kevin this weekend, I picked out another book to read on the topic, called “The Pursuit of Perfect” by Tal Ben-Shahar (a professor at my alma mater). Although I’m not finished, it’s been amazing and eye-opening to read research on what I’ve known to be true for myself all along: that my inherent (very strong!) perfectionist tendencies contribute to me doubting myself, fearing failure, and telling myself that I may not be good enough (or smart enough, fast enough, pretty enough, well-liked enough … fill in the blank for any situation here). Ben-Shahar describes that the best situation is to be an “Optimalist,” which is basically a person with high aspirations (like a perfectionist) who also expects, recognizes, and accepts reality, and doesn’t consider every small failure alife-or-death situation. I have yet to learn what it takes to become an Optimalist (since I haven’t finished yet), but I thought I’d recommend the book in case any of you are interested! (picture source … I think this is one of my favorite quotes ever, and unfortunately I can’t find the “real” source!)

MMAZ: Simple Butternut Squash Dip

I know … it’s Monday, and I don’t usually share recipes on Mondays! But I love participating in Heather’s Meatless Monday A-Z, and the butternut squash chips I tried to make for Friday just didn’t work out, so I wanted to take another crack at this week’s ingredient: squash. (By the way, do you see what I did in the title? SQUASH Self-Doubt? I know…)

Anyway, it’s a good thing I did try again, because the result is delicious … and pretty much the simplest thing I’ve made in a while. You can throw it together in 5 minutes flat (after baking the squash), and I’ll bet that if you serve it at a party, your guests will think it’s far more complicated than it is. It’s creamy and rich, and complements fresh vegetables or crackers very well. Enjoy, and check out other squash recipes on Better with Veggies today!


So tell me in the comments …Do you deal with self-doubt? How do you squash it? And what’s your favorite recipe with squash?

    Reeon March 12, 2014 at 6:24 pm

    I have dealt with self-doubt for as long as I can remember. Even way back in public school. I’m slowly learning to accept myself just as I am. I try to remind myself about all of the things I didn’t think I could do..and then I did them, and did them well! I’m 37 years old and just getting it. I’ve heard your 40’s are the best years for self-confidence and I’m so ready 🙂 Thanks for the book recommendation. I’m totally checking that one out. ~Ree

      It’s amazing how many comments have hinted that it gets so much better with age, Ree! I’ve definitely seen huge improvements in my own self-doubt over the the past 5 years or so, so I’m excited to see it get even better! Hope you like the book!

    I can confidently say that a lot of my self-doubt is GONE!!!!!! Only when I am in a bad mood do I have a tiny bit of self doubt, but overall, I know that what I am doing is going to work for me! Everything happens for a reason, and the reason I am doing what I am doing is because it’s going to pay off in the end!!!! 🙂 YAY! SERIOUSLY YAY! I am so flipping happy. HA!

    So clever! And I’m in love with squash. And I have to agree with many above, as I get older, don’t less I care about those doubts and the more I brace real faith


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (14)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      Thanks, Lindsay! I loved hearing your (and others’) comments about self-doubt improving with age. I can tell you that, while mine isn’t gone (yet!), it has gotten SO much better over the past 5 years. I think it’s a combination of just recognizing that it’s there, reading about strategies to deal with it, and consciously forcing away those thoughts … plus the age-inherent self-confidence, of course! Looking forward to the trend continuing!

    Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeetson March 11, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    This dip looks really good; what a creative use of the squash!

    While I have doubts from time to time, I’ve actually got more confidence than I probably should. Maybe we could combine my ego with your doubts and come out to a happy medium. 🙂

    Truth: I find the older I get, the more self doubt dissipates and the more my confidence grows. Or maybe I just care less what others think. Either way, it gets better.


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (16)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:40 pm

      Haha, funny thought about combining your ego and my self-doubt :). I have to agree, though … while my self-doubt is still not GONE, it has gotten SO much better with age. The part about caring less what others think is a complete win (over time) for me, and I am proud of my improvement there. It’s just still my own thoughts that I battle sometimes. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes! I love your linkup too much to let it slip by, so I’m glad I took another cut at it, too! Fake it till you make it sounds like a good plan for self-doubt!

    Arman @ thebigmansworldon March 11, 2014 at 3:01 am

    I sometimes feel like self doubt is one of my best friends….the one which everyone tells you to drop because they are toxic but you can’t help having there. It’s a work in progress to remove them by my side but after it being so ingrained and commonplace in day to day actions…. its mentally tough!

    That dip on the other hand….anything with full fat yogurt is a winner!


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (20)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:38 pm

      That’s an amazing analogy, Arman! I completely know what you mean about the friend that everyone tells you to drop but you just … can’t. Well, I’ve been dropping my friend slowly but surely, and she seems to be hanging out a whole lot less than she used to be, but she’s still not gone for good … hope your friend follows the same trend :).

    I had a lot of self-doubt when I hit the wall on Sunday, but I kept thinking of all the inspiring runners I know, like you, and it helped me get through those last miles. Please tell me that running marathons gets easier!


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (24)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:37 pm

      Aww, you’re sweet, thanks, Jillienne! I am SO proud of you for finishing – that darn marathon wall is brutal on the body and the mind!! I’d love to tell you running marathons gets easier, and I know it does, but the truth is that they are still very hard for me after having done 5. However, I can also tell you that after 25 half marathons, I have them “figured out” and they definitely get MUCH easier (even for a “good-for-me” race where I’m pushing myself a lot, it’s mentally SO, SO, SO much more doable now!). So, looks like we both need to run a bunch more marathons :).

    Wow- that dip looks awesome!! You’re so right about self doubt. I have a great exercise I do with my health coach clients around fear and brainstorming what would you do if there was nothing holding you back? We are very often our own stumbling block!

      Thanks, Amanda! Well, good to know that in 1 year (when I hit my 30s), my voice of self-doubt will be gone forever :). Kidding, of course, but I do find it very true for myself that the self-doubt has faded with age, so I hope it continues on! Glad yours is much better!

    Annaon March 10, 2014 at 11:42 am

    I very, very often deal with self-doubt, and you described the emotions associated with that to a t! The things that helps me deal with it are occasional self pep talks, staying busy with things that will contribute to my work/growth, and thinking positive thoughts. Unfortunately that last one is where I sometimes get stuck. I tend to be hypercritical of myself and everything I do, so when one thing doesn’t turn out as I had hoped/expected, that gets the ball rolling for self-doubt. But I’ve been getting better at keeping those unnecessary, useless feelings out and focusing on the things I need to be doing to prevent them!


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (32)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:29 pm

      Thanks for the thoughtful comment, Anna! It’s funny – I LOVE positive thoughts, motivational quotes, and the like, but I still have that voice of self-doubt lingering around sometimes. And the keeping busy one – well, my problem is usually that I get myself TOO busy and then become stressed over things that shouldn’t be stressful. I think the moral of the story is that we all need to find what is right for US and learn to believe in ourselves, and I’m so glad you and I are both making great progress on that!

    Amy @ Long Drive Journeyon March 10, 2014 at 10:44 am

    Self doubt is definitely something that I have struggled with in the past. It’s so easy to let that voice inside your head dictate what you can and can’t do. And it’s hard, because it’s YOUR voice, and how do you silence yourself? What I’ve found is that there is an equally strong, albeit sometimes quieter, voice in my head that is cheering me on. That voice tells me I’m strong and beautiful, and that I can do the things I put my mind to. Sometimes the two voices duke it out, but the second voice, the good one, ends up winning out. I have learned (and am still learning) to own both of the voices, but choose which one I will listen to!


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (36)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:26 pm

      LOVE that idea of the two voices duking it out! It’s never realistic (for me) to believe that the self-doubter voice will NEVER appear again, but I have lots of techniques to silence that voice. Now I’m going to think about another little person inside my head that’s my advocate voice :). Thanks, Amy!

    Self-doubt is a hard thing. In so many ways I think that we can be our own worst critic. I try to focus every day on just doing the best I can. Some days that is more than others and that is OK. It’s even to fall back into the self doubt trap every now and then and it’s important to be able to recognize it before it takes over.

    Great post for a Monday morning 🙂

    I do deal with self-doubt all the time. The whole not smart, pretty, talented, creative enough. I find ways to support those theories too, which is worse, like not having dated in FORVER. But that’s me not putting myself out there…maybe because of failure? It’s a vicious cycle and something I connately have to work on. It’s not all areas of life…but some.

      I’m not sure Jillian Michaels is really the person to listen to in terms of relationship advice, but have you by chance listened to her podcast? She always playfully makes fun of her producer Janice for not putting herself out there dating-wise, and it turning into a vicious cycle where she doesn’t attract anyone because she’s not confident. Dating is so uncomfortable, but I hope you get out there and realize that you are an AMAZING person and there’s someone else out there who is a great match!

    I have a rule specially when racing … “no negative thoughts allowed” and as they come, which they inevitably do, I make a conscious effort to push them aside. If I compare myself to others I despair. If I compare myself to the person I used to be, I can usually hold my head a bit higher. Have a great week!

    Well, early Monday morning and you set the bar pretty high for ‘worst pun of the week’! 🙂

    The funny thing I have also read is that in the land of self doubt, getting praise, especially effusive praise, can actually cause MORE self-doubt because it makes us feel like the person giving praise is missing seeing how undeserving we are. Talk about a destructive cycle!

    And I totally get it – I was basically a ‘closet runner’ for 23 years due to self doubt. I was sure people would laugh as they waited for me because I was the absolute slowest …

    The squash dip looks really, really good! Definitely want to try that!


    • Squashing Self-Doubt (and a Butternut Squash Dip recipe!) (51)

      Megan Lyonson March 12, 2014 at 9:09 pm

      Glad the squash dip looks good – SO easy! Hope you make it! I’m interested to hear more about your comment. I guess I see how effusive praise could increase self-doubt (in an extreme case such as, “oh my gosh you filled out that tax form SO wonderfully! You are amazing! You have incredible handwriting!” <-- this is my example of over-the-top praise, if you can't tell). However, in almost all instances, I actually feel like praise DOES help. Maybe I'm gullible, or maybe the praise just isn't as effusive on my end, but I do think that the boost I get from others (in terms of compliments, encouragement, praise, whatever) are very helpful. If you disagree, let me know! (As a side note, my mom read this comment and thought I had written it ... and stayed up late last night worrying about whether it was a hidden message to tell her that she was praising me too much. Aww, how parents love their kids and agonize over everything :)).
