“Successful people have fear, successful people have doubts, and successful people have worries. They just don’t let these feelings stop them.” –T. Harv Eker

I know sitting and reading this right now, you have a million and one dreams and aspirations that you will aspire to attain.

You want to be an author, finish school and work at that amazing publishing house, get your degree in medical school, be a motivational speaker, and so on and so forth.

The possibilities of what we can attain in life are endless. 

But a lot of us don’t believe that we can actually do what we set our minds out to do and because of this, we never do it.

We die having dreamt that we could accomplish all of the things we lusted over other people for, without knowing that all along, we had the power to do it ourselves.

My two main goals as a professional writer are to write books, my first, a quote book or confessional guide, geared towards millennials, and I want to get my writing in print in magazines. 

This is what I want to do, but how I think can really determine if that happens or not.

I can start my book right now, drafting out my chapter, pray over it, and write this book with the intention to save someone life or inspire them.

Or, I can doubt myself, and say, well, look how many people have been rejected? I can’t do it.

Excuses on top of excuses as to why it can’t be done. 

If you take a good look at all of the people you admire who really set out to do what they say they would so, they had the intention of doing it and they worked to make it happen for good.

Yes, they are like any other person who from time and time again, became shocked by their sudden success, but nonetheless, they executed what they set out to do.

So for you, the person who has dreams that you believe are unattainable, I need you to really believe in yourself and go after what you say you are going to do.

Ask yourself what is really stopping you from being an author, a speaker, or whatever it is you desire to attain. What is it?

Is it fear, doubt, insecurity? 

All of these things come with success, so you really can’t avoid it. As humans, I truly believe we think less of ourselves than we really are and we put limitations on ourselves based on how we measure our worth.

But you can do what you put your mind to because you are the master of your own destiny.

I don’t want you to end up wishing you wrote the book, wishing you gave that presentation, wishing you did all the things you thought of in your head but was too afraid to do.

I just want you to do it because you can. TC mark
