Everything in the material world is first created as someone's thought. Therefore, to create the result you want, shape and control your thoughts and feelings.
It's natural to make excuses but if you're truly committed to figuring things out, all excuses have got to go. Be honest about how flimsy excuses are and move forward.
Accept that at one time or another you're going to do something dumb. That's OK - everyone does it. Just remember a fall is never final unless you stay on the ground.

Whenever you strike out and do something new, you'll be criticized and judged. This is normal. Ignore what people say. Let put-downs fire you up.
You're unique. You're a one-time mega event in the universe. Therefore, when you have an idea, bring it to life. The world values diversity. There's always room for you.
