“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.”
More often than not, we know the actions we must take which would allow us to achieve our goals both personally and professionally. However, one key challenge often prohibits us from taking these actions: our own doubts. Doubts about our skills and abilities, our resources, our ability to overcome external challenges and internal fears, and even our worthiness cause us to avoid taking the actions we know will propel us forward.
These doubts may be externally or self-produced but are almost always severely overstated. The only truth is that failure to act is a guarantee for failure to achieve. Almost all doubts are exaggerated and can be overcome by the courage to act despite doubts and fears. The best news is that once you start taking action you will learn that most actions will be positive and even failure of a particular action will provide learning, enabling you to do better next time.
