Motivation for all
Monday, July 16, 2007
I have realized many things about myself this past year. I know I have a lot to conquer in my own mind. Self doubt, fear of failure...of making the wrong decisions. Fear of not reaching my potential or letting myself and others down. This is an ongoing battle and something I struggle with on a daily basis. I know I am not alone in this and because of that I wanted to help others as I search for ways to get past my fears and "just do it" instead of fretting and holding back until I am "sure". How does one ever know they are sure of something? People would never do anything if they waited to be 100% sure their choice was the right decision. So. I am working on learning to be a "doer" instead of a "thinker".
This attitude needs to spill over into my weight issues too. I am focusing on the rest of my life, but this applies to losing weight as well. I just need to "do it" and know I CAN do it.

"A man's life is interesting primarily when he has failed--I well know.
For it's a sign that he tried to surpass himself."
"If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything at all"
