We all know people held back from achieving their dreams
and most times,
the people holding them back is themselves.

I read this brilliant advice
from writer Elizabeth Gilbert...
http://www.elizabethgilbert.com/writing.htm

"Magazines, editors, agents – they all employ young people making $22,000 a year whose job it is to read through piles of manuscripts and send you back letters telling you that you aren’t good enough yet: LET THEM DO IT. Don’t pre-reject yourself. That’s their job, not yours. Your job is only to write your heart out, and let destiny take care of the rest."

So no more pre-rejections.
Delegate that role to someone else
(customers, business partners, employers, your Mom).
Don't worry.
You'll have plenty of volunteers.

Great advice. I'm not a writer, but I always run my ideas by my wife for feedback or brainstorming. Sometimes just hearing myself explain my thoughts aloud makes me realize how they would or would not work. It's amazing how dynamic a simple idea can become when people simply communicate it. As the saying goes, we are our own worst critics...tis true.
