To put it bluntly, you’re afraid. Afraid of not knowing it all. Afraid of looking foolish. Afraid of what other people think.
Look, whatever your fears, you’re either going to face them or you’re not. Nobody can convince you to do it but you.

When faced with situations where there’s a gap between what you’d like to know and what you actually know, you go into “Google” mode, seeking out more and more detailed information to fill in every blank.

You need something compelling to aim for and you need a solid plan of attack for how you’re going to get there. Otherwise, you’re just treading water – surviving instead of

Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.”
