I used to say, “When in doubt, bounce,” which means leave wherever your at if there was any doubt of the outcome or felt slightly uncomfortable.
Now I’m on the lookout for those same situations to see what and why causes those feeling of unease. I want to uncover the meaning that brings up the doubt or uncomfortableness. Facing them head on and work my way through them.
I wonder how many opportunities I lost because I couldn’t deal with my own insecurities and wanted to just be “comfortable.”
What would’ve happened if instead I had said to myself, “When in doubt, seek within and press on.”
