The question many of us often ask ourselves.
Am I good enough, clever enough, capable enough, pretty enough, thin enough? This question helps us stay focused towards becoming a better version of ourselves.
The quality that differentiates the doer from the over thinker is that he acknowledges this thought/fear and is constantly doing his best.
The following quote comes to my mind this Saturday morning.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs; who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
What will you do from now on to first acknowledge, then silence this fearful thought and move onward, forward and upward?
