That's what we're constantly telling ourselves.
It doesn't matter what I think.
It doesn't matter whether or not I stand up for something.
It doesn't matter whether or not I put my work out there.
But the truth is that it does matter.
And even if it doesn't matter, it matters that you tell yourself that story.
It all starts with that story. It all starts with that story you tell yourself. That story that it does matter.
Because it all starts with you.
But if you think that it doesn't matter, it won't matter.
If you think you won't be able to make a difference, you won't make a difference.
Because everything you think, do and say will be a reflection of that story you tell yourself.
Make it the best story ever told.
Is that too simple?
It probably is.
But why make it any more complicated?
