Overcoming Self Doubt - a Quiz

Write down the answers to each of these questions on one sheet of paper.

4. How do you feel when you have a project, idea or dream?

5. How do you feel when you prepare to start the project, idea, or dream? 

6. How do you feel once you have started the project, idea, dream, and you get that feeling that what you are doing doesn't matter, or no one will like it, or something along those lines?

7. How do you feel when you completed a project, developed the great idea, or fulfilled that dream?

Without patience, ingenuity and persitance, anything you want to create will not make it to completion.
Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do."
So with that in mind, it's time to start a project we've been putting off, work at it a little bit each day, from planning, to gathering materials, to working on it step by step.  The more we practice starting, following through, and completing a project, the more likely we are to succeed at the next project.  What be…
