What if you?re wrong. 

What if everything you?ve bet on loses.

What if the very things you believe in are false, hollow, weak.

Doubt creeps into even the most resilient. Late nights, lying awake in bed, doubt and fear creep in and shake our foundations. 

They tell a tale of our foolishness, a tale referencing our past failures, the long road ahead, the words of those that doubt. 

It?s such a believable take they tell. 

It?s a lie. 

It?s all a lie. 

The truth is that you have a purpose, you have a reason to exist. You have gifts that should be shared with the world. 

You are valuable, you are important, you are useful, you are needed.

So often it?s hard to see, hard to believe, hard to admit. 

The truth is scary. 


It?s scary because if you DO have value if you DO have purpose, then you?re responsible to act. You have an obligation to take action and do what you need to do. 

What is that? It?s different for everyone. For some it might be as simple as encouraging those around them, for others, it might be developing a cure for a disease, for others, it might be writing that book, shooting that video, taking that picture, starting that company. 

It doesn’t? matter ?what? it is. It only matters that you take action. 

Stop doubting yourself. Stop doubting your purpose.

Never doubt yourself, your tenacity or your purpose.
