Most of our disappointments are internal. What holds you and I back is often the negatives, fears, and baggage we carry. Nobody is keeping you down but you. Whatever someone said has already disappeared into the atmosphere like a vapor. It’s your mind that holds it and replays it over and over again. How far could you go if nothing or no one was holding you back?
It’s ok to need help, pride is not your friend.
We live in a world of skepticism, sarcasm, and ignorance. It has always been this way but it just seems to me as if it is more pronounced today. There is still much beauty in the world but we chose not to see it, display it, or share it. Instead we focus on the rude, and the lewd. We doubt what is true. We prefer the lie. We make “alternative facts.” We use humor to mock what’s good, innocent or nice to be around. We lack the knowledge to appreciate what we have.
And because everyone is doing it, it seems ok. A skeptic is one who refuses to believe without direct personal experience.
What could you achieve if you weren’t holding yourself back? How far could you go if you weren’t afraid of failure, looking stupid, or putting your talent out there?
All you need after that is courage.
