MUSIC, QUOTES, AND COFFEE TO GET YOU INSPIRED AND READY TO CRUSH YOUR DAY
Let’s start the day, and what better way to kick it off than by getting your dose of Music Quotes and Coffee. Today it’s Monday, November 4, 2019.
Today I want to talk achievement. About finding out what we are supposed to be and about reflecting if the resistance that we are finding is real, or something that we are self-imposing. Or sometimes we just don’t start for the fear of failing. But I can’t imagine myself living with regrets and not going after my dreams, or my goals.
And as I was thinking about this in the morning, I read this marvelous article about impostor syndrome. And that is another way of resisting.
“But impostor syndrome is rarely a sign that you’re going down the wrong path. Most of the time, it’s simply a defense mechanism against failure and disappointment. When we try to talk ourselves out of pursuing our goals, when we try to convince ourselves that our work isn’t important, we’re avoiding whatever it is we need to do. We don’t want to falter, so we never start. And when we never start, we never succeed.”
