It’s easy to come up with an excuse why you’re not persuing what you truly want. It’s easy to come up with a beautiful story why you shouldn’t. To voice it to others while they nod in approval regardless of the decision you made. Cognitive dissonance is tricky. We believe what we want to believe and when we do, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But sooner or later that little whisper comes back. You don’t feel good because you know you’re not what you’re suppose to be. The whisper questions that maybe you’re in your own way. Maybe it was self-doubt all along.
I know this: Self-doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.
