Often we get in our own way. We come up with detailed reasons as to why we shouldn’t win. We do our research and even get other to co-sign why we can’t do it. We sike ourselves out completely. We compare ourselves to people way ahead, that put in the work, and we say it’s impossible.
Why not put that effort and much more into saying you can? If we used all of that whining and self-doubt as fuel to do something productive we’d all be better off.
Put the energy where it’s useful and not useless.
