Read this when… you’re self-doubting

Dear you,

You have a dream that you can’t get over, it’s something that doesn’t leave your mind no matter how much time passes.

“I need it. I need it. I need it.” Your mind screams

Then your mind starts going threw the hundreds of things that could go wrong.

All the reasons you’re not good enough.

How you’re not strong or smart enough.

How other people are ten times better at it than you.

Guess what— you’ll always have a reason not to do something, you’re never going to be ready.

So in that case, you need to start now.

Go ahead.

Start planning, sketching, investigating, saving up; do whatever you have to, just start now. Pour your soul into it, give it everything you’ve got.

Time passes by so fast, and when you least expect it, you’re going to be so much closer.

You shouldn’t care about the consequences, how hard it is, or if your parents and friends agree with you.

At the end of the day, you’re going to have to live with yourself the rest of your life. So you need to make sure you’re happy with what you’ve become.

It might take you some time, that doesn’t mean you are a failure. As long as you are taking small steps, you are making progress.

Please, please, please be patient with yourself. You are doing the best you can and that is worth so much.

Here’s a cookie to get you started: 🍪

Now, get out there and change your world.
