Doubt Is A Snake

I have a confession. I live in my head, and it's exhausting.

I've always been one to live in my head, but it wasn't until recently that I realized how bad it had gotten.

Running your own business does that to you.

My brain runs like a ticker-tape on the bottom of the TV screen. A constant scroll of updates of useless information not even worthy of headline news. But it's there, scrolling away, waiting for that one word to catch my attention.

I don't need to tell you what the scrolling says. You already know because you hear it too.

Most of the time it's harmless - "What should I have for dinner? I don't feel like cooking. I hate the color beige. Did that guy just check me out? PUPPY!"

Sometimes the scrolling starts to pick up a theme, and it sneaks up on you like a snake. It's not until you hear the rattle of its tail that you discover you are way too close.

Doubt is that snake.

It is the killer of ideas.

It's the annihilator of dreams.

It's the reason you gave up painting.

It's why you never asked that guy (or girl) out.

It's why you stopped building your business and went back to the job you hated.

Doubt is a dream killer.

Don't let the doubt win!

If you feel like you are losing the fight against doubt, let's talk before it's too late!
