I used to think I was fundamentally different than the people I admired.
I used to think they had something I didn’t. Or that maybe they just didn’t have the fear and shame and self-doubt that I did.
I used to think that either by nature or nurture, they were made different than me.
But now I know that’s not true.
Because all the people I admire have brains.
Which means that all the people I admire have the same voices of fear and doubt and confusion and overwhelm incessantly working against them. They have brains that whine at the work, cringe at the risks, fear criticism and failure, and offer mountains of excuses.
They have just learned not to listen to them.
There is hearing your brain. And then there is heeding your brain.
And while all brains are going to protest, nothing says you have to take any of it seriously.
My brain still has all of the misgivings and the doubts and the fears it always did.
I just finally learned that none of them matter.
Your ability to get what you want may simply come down to the difference between letting your brain have an opinion and thinking you need to pay any attention to it.
