“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right!” – Henry Ford
The fear of doing something is often consumes more energy than simply doing it. Those fears are compounded by inaction, heightened by vacillation, and magnified by short-sightedness. That said, fears are best overcome by action.
The pattern of action in your life shapes your pattern of attitude. I suppose the reverse is true, as well, but the point is that developing a habit of stepping up to the plate and swinging no matter how inadequate you may feel will create creative momentum in your life. And that creative momentum is both sufficient and necessary to escaping the vortex of lethargy and mediocrity into which many lives are poured.
