Reasonable Doubt

Doubt is something that many of us fight against daily. We doubt our own abilities. We doubt the abilities of others concerning us. We sometimes think that it is unlikely that we will succeed in business, ever get married, ever buy a house, ever get out of debt, ever this…and ever that. When we are faced with the same dilemmas after putting forth the same effort to overcome those circumstances, it is reasonable that doubt would form. That is why it is important to maximize your efforts by engaging in actions that will move you forward and not keep you going in circles. If you have been doing the same thing that gets you the same undesirable outcome, it is not only reasonable that you would live in doubt, but doubt should be expected. Doubt can present itself in the form of uncertainty, mistrust, fear, and cause you to lack confidence.

In the United Sates, in certain cases before a jury is sent to deliberate, they are asked to find a person guilty beyond reasonable doubt. Proof beyond a reasonable doubt is proof of such a convincing character that you would be willing to rely and act upon it without hesitation in the most important of your own affairs. In such cases, some doubt may be present; however there is enough evidence that causes one to see beyond that doubt.

In your own life there are certain times when you need to see beyond reasonable doubt. That can be done if you have designed a plan of action that is so convincing that you would be willing to rely and act upon it without hesitation. The reason why most of us doubt is because we lack confidence in our own abilities, we are uncertain about the outcome, and we don’t trust ourselves anymore because of past failures. If you live a life that is intentional, spend time developing yourself personally and professionally, it is possible to live beyond a reasonable doubt.

Examine the evidence in your own life. Is there proof beyond a reasonable doubt that you will succeed? Is there evidence of your planning, preparation, and diligence? If you are found guilty of anything it should be of pursuing a desirable life beyond a reasonable doubt.
