We've all been there. Here's a trick: Don't say it out loud. Just pretend to be confident. Fake it till you make it. It's scary, but I promise you this: When it's over, you are going to say, "It wasn't as bad as I thought it was." Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will.

The point when you are just about to give up is the precise moment when the other guy gives up. At some point you are going to ask yourself, "Why am I doing this?" You better have an answer. What is driving you? Is it something someone said or did to you? Is it a competition?...
At some point, you are going to say to yourself, "I've never done this before" or "I don't know what I'm doing."
There's an old Russian saying, povtorenie mat ucheniya, which means "repetition is the mother of learning."
The more you perform the same activity, the more confident you become. Confidence is a tangible thing--it comes from practice and repetition.
You are seeing your progress in real time. By nature, you are going to want to push the envelope to find out your boundaries. You will find yourself saying, "I wish it would suck more." It's our human nature to know what we are able to overcome.
The first step is always the most uncomfortable. All you have to do is show up. The battle is half won if you just show up. I get it. It's uncomfortable to start something.
Remind yourself that you made a decision. You are already committed and there is no going back.
Create a support network. Talk about your experiences. The worse the experience it is to you, the better the story it is to everyone else.
Soon, you will be seeking uncomfortable experiences to share with your friends. Be a good storyteller.
Just when you think things couldn't get any worse, he shows up. "The suck" is here to make you tougher. He's a friend that arrived to make you better. Instead of complaining, celebrate the blessing that is the suck.

This norm serves a great purpose in that bad ideas can be debated and debunked. However, it also kills a lot of good ideas as well.
FIX: Stop yourself from first pointing out what's wrong in a situation, and make it a habit to jump to what's right instead.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
