“There can be moments when our situation seems dismal. During these moments, a seed of doubt can grow. Although it is a thought that simply crossed your mind, if it is not addressed, it can lure you into a pitfall of doubt. As the manager of your thoughts and emotions, you have the authority to prevent doubt from taking up residence in your mind. Doubt is a breakthrough blocker. Think about it. Your victory begins in your mind. So, if you have lost the battle in your mind, you have lost the battle. Period.”
