My dear,

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Go out and make something. It doesn’t have to be meaningful or change the world in a positive way. It just has to be.

It just has to be something you created from the void of nothing. For making something from nothing breeds confidence and courage. While inaction gives you time to think. And time thinking (over-thinking) breeds doubt and fear. Doubts about whether it’s good enough, and fears about people hating it. When you’re in action, making, you have no time to doubt yourself. And by the time you’re done the doubts and fears are weak in comparison to the feelings of confidence and courage that consume your being.

Live in action, shun inaction.

Falsely yours,
Dale Breckenridge Carnegie
