I have a friend who, after someone made a comment, would almost always reply, ‘No doubt. No doubt.’ That eventually began to irritate me. I thought, ‘Don’t you have anything else to say?’
One day, I listened to those two words. No Doubt. They began to take a different meaning.
How many times have we thought about doing something, had an idea or a dream, and let it die because of doubt? I have. But it wasn’t always that way.
When I was younger, I was the first to try new thing and take risks, most times uncalculated. If my friends said, ‘I dare you. . .’ then I would do it. No questions asked. I was in it for the thrill, and to see if I could do it.
Dale Carnegie, the quintessential salesman, once said, “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
Most of us have heard the term, ‘Doubting Thomas.’ It originated in the Bible. Jesus had to prove to Thomas, one of his disciples, that he had risen from the grave. For Thomas to believe, he had to put his hand on Jesus’ wound. He had to do something to erase his doubt.
What do you have to do to have ‘no doubt?’ What fears must you face to believe that you can. Whatever you must do, ‘go out and get busy.’
Just Do Your Dream.
