Doubts and Fears

“Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson ~ 1803-1882, Poet and Essayist

What work is before you today? How will you tackle the doubts and fears that keep you from taking action?

When I asked best-selling author Becca Fitzpatrick, (Hush, Hush and Crescendo) how she gets through negative reviews and comments on her work, she replied, “I find my favorite authors on Amazon or Goodreads and read the awful reviews even these  authors get. And I realize you can’t make everyone happy.”

Is your doubt and fear coming from an external source or from within?
