If someone talked to you the way you talk to you, you’d never get coffee with him.
You’d tell him they were really discouraging and hurtful.
You’d wonder why he doubts on your dreams so much.
You’d never call him for advice or ask for their help.
If the inner voice in your head was an actual person you would have stopped listening to that person a long time ago.
So why then, are you still listening to him?
Today, evict that person.

When doubt gets loud, and it will, imagine that doubt was sitting across from you at a restaurant. Would you sit there for hours and hear about all the ways you suck? Would you let someone constantly rattle off all the ways you’re failing and inadequate over and over again?
Or would you get up and walk out, perhaps even turning over the table for good measure?
It’s time to move on.
It’s time to flip some tables.
It’s time to stop listening to that internal doubt.
