Start. Start something. Do not wait for the perfect to start something. Whatever you want to do with your life, start it today. As Ausonius once said,” Begin; to begin is half the work. Let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished.”

How To Overcome Self-Doubt

When you focus on doubt, you will have more doubts. When you focus on faith, on love, on happiness, you will have more faith, happiness, and love.

Doubt is the beginning of all failures. If you want to succeed in life, you must NEVER doubt yourself. You must always believe in yourself, in your power to get things done. Just because you didn’t do well yesterday does not mean you are not going to do well in the future. You will do really well if you believe in yourself, if you have confidence in yourself, if you have the courage to do things differently, if you have the courage to face your fears, if you have the courage to try something new.

You cannot succeed while doubting yourself or thinking thoughts of failure.”- Orison Swett Marden

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” No matter how tough,do not quit. Do not give up on yourself. Do not give up on your dreams. Because you are not going to succeed if you quit. The best way forward is to try something different. It is not to quit. When you quit, you are done pursuing your dream. But when you do something new, you still have a chance to make your dreams happen.

Take a chance. Do not let your past failures stop you from taking a chance. Do not let your past failures stop you from doing something new. Because you cannot live your life unless you stop doubting yourself. Do not doubt yourself. If you want to climb the ladder of success, you must believe in yourself. That is the only way.
