“The next time you feel like you are incapable of doing something new, say yes anyways. Then look for help to learn how to get better. Recall the times you embarked on challenges that were very difficult but turned out okay. Think about how you succeeded in spite of your reticence. Hold onto that feeling of bravery and savor it. Envision ways you would like to challenge yourself. Visualize opportunities coming to you or you seeking out the chance to change and grow.”
– Elad Levinson, 2015
