“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.” –Bertrand Russell
How do the demons of doubt show up for you?
They can creep in through various ways of comparing the present with the past or ourselves to others. They wreak havoc in terms of second guessing, hesitation, procrastination, and even paralysis.
I believe that our dreams require a good doctor’s advice of healthy diet and regular exorcise.
The diet might consist of restricting oneself to only consuming foods for thought of what one might contribute, the difference one could make, and who could possibly benefit by what our dream has to offer…vs. all those other fatty items of self-concern, trying to look good, and the dreaded possible mistake made.
Will we ever do it perfectly? Are we ever going to be the ultimate expert at whatever our dream is about? Probably not. Can we possibly have an impact anyhow? Sure.
I once heard this phrase: “There’s absolutely no way in the world you can do this wrong. And, there’s also no chance in hell that you’ll do it right. You’ll do it exactly how you do it.”
So, along with the healthy diet, adding a regimen of exorcise — casting out the demons of doubt for the sake of what might be possible — will likely pave a much brighter way for others…and ourselves.
What dream could you take a step forward in today to exorcise in faith?
Got doctor’s orders?
“Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.” –Khalil Gibran
