All too often self-doubt and self-criticism hold people back. They tempt us to stay on the safe side, to stick to who, what and the places we know, and sometimes lead us not to undertake any of our little plans at all, for fear of failure. They subtly divert our focus to the imperfections, to what could possibly go wrong, as such clouding our imagination about what could come out of our dreams and aspirations. They make it hard to picture ourselves in the person who we could possibly be, if only we are willing to take a plunge. One need not resort to recklessness though, for this would be an all too hefty drugs. But a small dose of audacity is always worth taking, as if it were a daily health supplement.
