Crippling Self Doubt by Meredith Farmer

Have you ever had to struggle with self-doubt and fears? I am sure all of us have had this experience in our lives. While a little doubt is useful and healthy in guarding against complacency and overconfidence, too much doubt can be crippling. The problem with crippling doubt is that fear paralyzes our actions.

Instead of seizing opportunities, we hesitate. We do not trust our ability to go forth and shape our future. Instead of growing with wisdom and experience, we remain in our comfort zones.

Procrastinating by Bruce

“It is not difficult to wield a sword in one hand; the Way to learn this is to train with two long swords, one in each hand. It will seem difficult at first, but everything is difficult at first.” Such are the timeless words of the famous swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi. Everything is difficult at first, but we should not let this hinder us from getting started. Instead, we should accept this as part of the learning process and take heart knowing that as we grow in experience, the difficulty will lessen. How then are we to manage the difficulty we face and reach that level of experience? In all things, there is a natural way of attaining success. I shall now share that way with you.
