    Free will works hand and hand with your consciousness and conscience. Doubt is a emotional feeling that hampers one's ability to execute an action.

    Example: I'm a pretty good pool player and at times I have my doubts about making a shot. My free will continues to operate based on my own self-esteem, confidence and experience, providing I've been in a similar situation or circumstance.

    Free will if strong enough can push doubt out of the equation and so your actions can be fluid.

    Doubt if strong enough will stop or force you to change direction of thought or actions.

    Hope that was helpful.
