Let your mind see every detail

“Let your mind see every detail of your own special version of the very best that life can be. If you could make the world exactly to your liking, consider very specifically just how that world would be. If you could spend your time doing precisely what you wish, how would the moments of your life be lived?” _Ralph Marston

I read this article ‘Here Are 5 Ways To Face Your Demons And Free Yourself From The Pain Of The Past’ by Tony Fahkry.

In the article, Tony Fahkry detailed how to face and overcome your demons. I was drawn to this quote by Brendon Burchard which Tony referenced;

“Our internal demons poison us with worry and fear whenever we might be vulnerable, stunting our growth and vitality. Our destiny is decided by how well we know our demons of Doubt and Delay, how well we defend against them, and how many battles we win against them each day of our lives.”

Tony referenced a few other quotes although this one struck a chord.

As a creative, there is the issue of imposter syndrome, fear of failure, fear of rejection, the fear that your work will be ill-conceived, fear that your work will be judged harshly, and the list goes on. One is overwhelmed by the angst which creates doubts in ones ability leading to a lack of confidence, and the inability to strive forward.

We are all faced with our own inner demons whatever your status, and the best way to overcome these demons is by facing it head-on as the quote suggests.

I battle mine constantly on a daily basis. I will strongly recommend that you read Tony Fahkry’s article at your spare time. It is an interesting read.
