Past the doubts

Let your doubts alert you, then let them go. Don’t let them linger.

Ask yourself what you must learn, do, or change in order to let the doubt go. Then make that happen, and get past the doubt.

Your doubts challenge your decisions. The purpose of those doubts is not to stop you from making decisions or from acting on them, but to strengthen your decisions and actions.

Life can be dangerous, and you’re smart to be wary. Yet the best way to deal with the danger is not to retreat from it, but to find a way to act and to thrive in the face of it.

Take up the challenge that your doubts offer. Respond to your doubts by preparing, improving, strengthening yourself and your plan of action.

Then go ahead and take that action. Let your doubts tell you how to get past them, then do what they say and leave those doubts far behind.

— Ralph Marston
