Self-Doubt Kills Dreams

An expert in your field or starting a new career. A shared obstacle is that most face self-doubt. You may feel you don't belong or that your work doesn't measure up. But you're in good company. Many wrestle with self-doubt before making history. Sometimes it's our doubts and anxieties that push us to accomplish greatness.

John Steinbeck - thought he was a fraud as an author.

Michelangelo - told the Pope he was not good enough to paint the Sistine Chapel.

After being elected, President George Washington - told the Supreme Court, "I greatly apprehend that my countrymen will expect too much from me."

John F. Kennedy - once told a friend that his older brother Joe Jr. was far smarter than he was.

After his success at the 1860 state Republican Convention, Abraham Lincoln told the lieutenant governor of Illinois, "I am not well," referring to his depression.

Da Vinci - wrote in his diaries, "Tell me if I ever did a thing."

Van Gogh - struggled with self-doubt. He once told a friend, "If you hear a voice within you say you cannot paint, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."

The other common trait they all had was the ability to push through that self-doubt. When self-doubt creeps in, keep pushing or painting as Van Gogh would have it.

Hard Easy


What if I told you there are two ways to live: Easy Hard or Hard Easy? Would you rather live an easy life now—eat whatever you want, buy whatever your heart desires, avoid the tough conversations that can come with true human connection—and deal with the consequences later?. Or would your life be better in the future—meaning, would you rather be healthier, have financial security,. have better relationships, and have a sense of peace and fulfillment in your life—if you tackled the hard decisions now?
