“Doubt, of whatever kind, can be ended by action alone.” – Thomas Carlyle
I think we all spend too much time worrying, wondering “why?” or “what if?” and creating doubt in our minds without having the courage to find out the truth. Like Carlyle says, all it takes is action to make all of this go away.Instead of assuming how others feel or what they think, ask them. Instead of doubting you are able to do something, try it! Just act. It will save you so much time. I do this every morning at boot camp. At first I doubted myself and my ability and there were some things I was scared to try. Turns out I can do most of them (outside the realm of my injuries of course) but I can.
Just thinking about the progress I wouldn’t haven’t made if I hadn’t acted on my doubts and worries makes me angry. Just do! Just ask! Just share your feelings! As they say, they only stupid question is the one that is never asked. This is the same thing. Be honest and give everything a shot. You don’t know the outcome of anything unless you try. I can promise you that we are all a little stronger, brighter and able than we give ourselves credit for.
