Today's episode of "Quotes to Live By" is something I wanted to address because of how two things, doubt and failure, have impacted my life.
"Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will."
Everyone experiences self-doubt. It stems from fear; fear of failure, fear of being judged, fear of not being good at what you dream of doing. This quote from Suzy Kassem is a sad truth. Most people kill their dreams simply from doubt, whether that is doubting themselves or letting others doubt of them dictate their decision to more forward in the pursuit of that dream. The truth is that when you finally get over that doubt in the pursuit of your dreams, and if you fail as most everyone does at one point or another, you realize that failure isn't quite so bad. You can dust yourself off, learn from that failure, and you'll be a little more prepared and seasoned for the next thing that comes your way. Don't let doubt be the thing that keeps you back and from achieving your dreams.
