“Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.” ~Sophia Loren
I think the same thing goes for other areas of our lives. It is easy to believe that we are not talented enough, accomplished enough, smart enough, or skilled enough to pursue an activity, career, or dream.
I have often felt that I am not ready yet or that I need to get much more education or experience before taking on a new challenge.
But the truth is, there are people who do not let that stop them. They may not even be as talented, accomplished, smart or skilled as us, but through their drive and persistence, they are able to realize their dreams.
So do not hold yourself back by thinking that you are not enough. You have talents and strengths that are needed in this world. You are good enough. You are smart enough. You are strong enough. Don’t wait – start now.
