We do that to ourselves regularly.
I’m not good (fill in the word) enough.
We ARE good enough. We are sufficient to the task. Sure we need help and as we take the action the answers are there.
You are needed. Remember these wise words from Helen Keller:
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.
Never tell yourself no
How do you grow?
In February 2005 George O’Kelley taught me “Nothing changes if nothing changes.” Mostly I focused this outward viewing others and their actions but recently realized my lack of change.
My comfort zone has been reading the same types of books. Really I had not realized the depth of things until I read The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. I have changed and grown mightily through reading yet now realize I have really not achieved escape velocity.
Has my growth been stymied? Have I been comfortable in my learning/growth and perhaps even proud?
Like in an old movie fight scene; my head was rocked. I was accepting the status quo by doing what I had always done. My comfort zone evaporated. Would I patch it up and continue the status quo? Afraid not.
Walking outside my comfort zone bears out the the truth Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. proclaimed; “Man’s mind stretched to a new idea never goes back to its original dimensions.”
I am stretching.
“But a man who doesn’t dream is like a man who doesn’t sweat, he stores up allot of poison.”
Judge Cool taught me this today in The Grass Harp.
No dreams = poison
Sounds like the person you want to avoid (being or being around).

Do you capture your thoughts so you get better/more thoughts? You will improve your thoughts as you assign value to your thoughts. Practice writing them down, recording them, or by what ever means excites you.
Here is one I captured today while reading Jason Salamun’s blog. Those crazy dreamers has a sweet flavor.
Hmm ~ How about capturing your dreams?
