Because you don't believe in yourself.
Well, maybe you do.
Maybe you really do.
But that's usually not enough to make others believe in you.
So what makes others believe in you when you have zero credentials?
When you have nothing to show?
Doing is the only thing that will ever convince anyone.
Sitting on your ass and doing stuff.
Over and over again.
Longer than anybody else.
And not just talking about it.
Or reading about it.
Or going to events about it.
What I'm talking about is the actual act of doing something.
Of creating something.
Of building something.
And putting your ideas into action.
Here's the thing...
Most people just talk about stuff.
About how they're going to do this.
Or about how they're going to do that.
But they never do.
And when you never do, then no one is going to believe in you.
Not your boss.
Not your parents.
Not your friends.
But just doing isn't enough.
It has to be more than that.
It has to be more than your average 9 to 5 thing.
You've gotta live it.
You've gotta breathe it.
Day in and day out.
And you've gotta believe in yourself.
Or else you'll get knocked out in round one....
