Many people don’t want to take risks or dream or admit they’d like to accomplish more in their lives. They see other people doing things they want to be doing, but they say it’s not possible for them. If others can do it (write a book, start a business, master an instrument, etc.), why can’t you? And even if they didn’t do it, why couldn’t you be the one to do it? It’s all based in self-belief.
