“There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt
separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and
breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and
hurts; it is a sword that kills.” – Buddha

We tend to be our harshest critic. We often put ourselves down when
we are unsure of ourselves and minimize our accomplishments when we
go unrecognized.  We often call someone a “liar” when they offer us
a compliment and criticize ourselves if someone tells us we look

From here on out, I want you to make a promise to yourself. I want
you to stop doubting yourself, and start accepting everything that
is wonderful about yourself. I want you to work on accepting
compliments with gratitude and love.  And when you start accepting
the love of others, I want you to hold that love in your dantian
and allow it to grow so strong that it rids your body of all doubt
and insecurities.

I want you to replace the word “doubt” with “believe.” Believe in
yourself and in all around you.
