The beauty of the world has two edges, one of laughter, one of anguish, cutting the heart asunder.

Beyond a doubt

The surest way to move beyond your doubts is with experience. You can go from merely believing to knowing for certain by putting those beliefs into action. Do you believe you can earn more money, or learn to speak another language, or build a great relationship? Believing that you can is great, and yet as long as it is just a belief, it can be destroyed by doubt. By putting real action and experience into any belief, it moves past being a belief and becomes something you know for certain.

When you know for certain, doubt has no power. When you’ve actually experienced yourself doing it, nothing is ever going to make you doubt that you can.

The way to move toward anything you desire is to begin experiencing the reality of it. There is something you can do today, right now, some action you can take in the direction of your most treasured desire. As soon as you take that step, you’ll begin the process of knowing for certain. Whatever you believe, put yourself into it and as you do you’ll be pushing your doubts out of it.
