Inspirational Stories~When Doubt Comes Calling


Are you holding doubt close to the vest when Hope want to whisper sweet nothings in your ear?

Are you your own best friend or your own worst enemy?

You are the only one who can choose between the two

When Doubt Comes Calling

When doubt comes calling

Show it some teeth
Bear your stance steady
Leave it to misery

When doubt comes calling
Erase it from your mind
Ease on memories more fond
Craze on better emotions

When doubt comes calling
Do not be doubtful of all those around you
Be not doubtful of the steps you take
The choices you make
And the direction you choose
In essence, presence, breadth, life, and depth
Be not doubtful of you

When doubt comes calling
Stare it down with all your might
Let it not enter your mind
Let it not seek your soul
Turn away

When doubt comes calling
Never have a doubt
Of how you may, can, will
You do already
In essence, presence, breadth, life and depth

When doubt comes calling
Know that you are at the steady
Prefer to be slow and steady
The tortoise wins the race
The hare is selfish laced

When Doubt Comes Calling

Brush it Off your Vest
Let it Slide from your Shirt Sleeves
Let it Grovel at Your Knees
Pay it No Mind
Listen to the Sweet Nothings
Hope Whispers in Your Ear
When Doubt Comes Calling

Hopeful entrepreuners encourage success


Hope Keeps Good Company,

Hope cures cynicism. Hope increases productivity. Hope needs no justification.- Seth Godin

"If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream."- Martin Luther King Jr.

"Hope is a waking dream"- Aristotle

"Hope is the thing with feathers--That perches on the soul--And sings the tune without the words--And never stops--at all--"- Emily Dickinson

Doubt does the most damage. Just suspend disbelief. Act like you have complete faith. When you believe in yourself, others will believe in you too.
