Am I good enough?

Most top performers never feel good enough. They have fears and doubts but they don’t let them stand in their way. They just keep working, doing and improving.

Am I smart enough?

Probably not. That’s what resources (i.e. libraries, people, etc…) are for.

Am I pretty (or handsome) enough?

Yes, to the people who matter. The rest of the world doesn’t.

What if I fail?

It will hurt but how you respond is up to you. You’ll either use it as fuel to propel you forward  or use it to poison and destroy you.

Do I have what it takes?                          

Deep down you already know this. You know whether you have the ability to stick with something for three months versus fifteen years.

Don’t be ashamed of being honest with yourself. You know yourself better than anyone. So only follow the paths that truly interest you.

Need some motivation (and brutal honesty mingled with humor)? Try this video:

My latest non-fiction title, 10 Things to Forget: to be Creatively Free was a blast to write. On this blog, I’ve been writing on topics that didn’t make it into the book and others I’ve expanded on. You can read the other posts here.
