Conquer doubt with action

As you think, so you are. Whatever you think you can do, whatever you think you can become, whatever you think you can have, is yours. Unless you doubt it. Your thoughts have the power to become reality, only to the degree they are free from doubt.

Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.

It’s a very simple equation. When your goals are strong and highly focused, and your doubts small by comparison, that leads to success. If your doubts are bigger than your goals, watch out!

To conquer doubt, we must act as if there is no doubt. Of what use is it to repeat your goals every morning, then spend the rest of the day living as if they will never be a reality? Doubts are stong and persistent. You can’t simply THINK them away -- you must ACT them away.

Follow your goals with action. Act as if you have no doubts. That action will eliminate the doubt, and, as it happens, lead to the fulfillment of your goals. Action is the key that conquers doubt, and turns dreams into reality. Start walking, and you’ll know, without a doubt, that the journey is possible. Because it has just become so.

— Ralph Marston
