I apologize in advance for the brevity of this post, but my dog and cat have a date with the vet; and yes they are super excited.
Okay maybe not.
However my time crunch is for sure a good thing because I could drone on and on about today’s subject, doubt. Doubt and I have met before and I am quite certain that many of you are familiar with it as well. Doubt is nasty little booger, arguably worse than fear. And we all know that fear, is a punk.
The other day I introduced my kids to this guy.
Buster Keaton, a brilliant comedian, epic stuntman, and innovative independent film maker. His life was full of ups and downs. He hit bottom, but rose up, surprising many people, possibly including himself. After learning more about him, I thought hey that might make a good movie.
Then I thought the same thing I thought when I started writing “Fred and Ethel”.
That can’t be a good idea, because if it was someone else would have done it already.
Doubt is easy, quite possibly the easiest human emotion. It seems that we jump at every opportunity to sell ourselves short. Then stories don’t get written, companies don’t get formed, and ground breaking discoveries go undiscovered.
The truth is, it’s you. You are the one, who can write the stories that no one else has thought to write. Discover the things that no one else has thought to discover. And create the company/product that no one else has thought to create.
All this potential awesomeness is just waiting for the right one. You.
Go write, create, and discover. The world is waiting for you to stop doubting yourself.
Until next time,
