Shakespeare and turning doubts into the “to be” of success.

Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we often might win, by fearing to attempt.” – William Shakespeare

Yes, when we think of Shakespeare we think about, “To be or not to be, that is the question”.  The meaning, in this case, “to be” is to be engaged in your business or life itself. We do have a choice “to be” or not “to be”. That is a question we need to ask. If we are not ready to “bring your best” each and every day perhaps it is time to look for another career, maybe another life.

But we really have the choice “to be”.

As far as our doubts, yes we always have a few. Though doubts are feelings that come from ourselves and ourselves alone, they are not the best feelings to have. In a sense that they are “traitors,” they are certainly are not there to help us.

Doubts prevent us from so much from attempting to achieve and there is no way to achieve something without attempting it first. I have spoken about doubts and fears and how to overcome them in the past. It is very important to make every effort to lessen the impact of our doubts and fears because they become a barrier to success and happiness.

I think the bottom line is to remember that every day we have the choice “to be” or “not to be”. That IS the question we need to ask ourselves as we pursue our own personal and business growth.
