No doubt

All the doubt in the world cannot stand up to one little positive action. Doubt has no power when you decide to act in spite of it, and doubt cannot stop you if you refuse it attention. It matters not who doubts you, or how much, or why. What matters is what you do.

A thousand people, or a million, or a billion, could say it cannot be done. Yet that does not in any way have to stop you from doing it.

Just because there are obstacles to overcome does not mean it cannot be done. When you focus not on the obstacles themselves, but rather on how you’ll get beyond them, it will be done, and you’ll be the one who does it.

Doubt exists entirely in the mind and when you put it out of your mind it ceases to exist. Rather than struggling to fight doubt, or to conquer it, or to live with it, you can simply abandon it and it will evaporate into thin air.

Fill your mind with positive thoughts, fill your moments with positive, productive actions, and doubt will have no place in your life.
