Excuse #1: “I’m Not Expert Enough”

I’ve heard people who have invested thousands of dollars and countless hours into their education or certifications say this. It is so easy for us to feel inadequate. It is so easy for our insecurities to shout more loudly than our confidence.

Excuse #2 “Someone Else is Already Doing It”

No kidding.

And that’s it.

I know it’s easy to feel like you’re not enough, and to seek the comfort of just one more course, or to avoid the competition with and comparison to someone else. But these are just self-defense strategies to keep you small.
