I don't have time.
I am not ready.
I am not good enough.
I need luck.
I don't have money.
I don't have a good idea.
I will think about it.
I need to do something else first.
I will try next year.
We fear and most often hate rejections in life. Yet, we reject ourselves daily from everything we know we want.
We can blame the world for all the madness around us and the people who often get in the way to sabotage our dreams. But, there's only so much we can do to change others around us.
Blaming it on the boss will not take away your worries.
Blaming it on society will not make your work environment any more uncomplicated.
Blaming it on luck will not make it bounce back with a silver bullet.
Therefore, we should stop beating ourselves up and start giving ourselves the permission to do what our heart and mind somehow already know.
As Steve Jobs once mentioned, "..have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
