On one hand your mind is your best friend and on the other hand it can be your worst enemy. In a spit second, it tells you go for it you can do it then, it tells you, you’re crazy if you think you can do that. How do you know you’re making the right decisions when it comes to living your dreams if your own mind is limbo?
You must recognize that self talk gets louder when you enter unfamiliar territory. Your mind doesn’t have a reference point for the unknown so it responds with doubt and fear. It wants to protect you from what bad might happen. But the unknown is where dreams come true and life is the sweetest.
