A man Is what he thinks
A man’s thought is like a garden, whatever he plants he gets it as a result.

The environment we grow in plays a very vital part in how we think of ourselves, if People plant a seed of self-doubt in our brain, we doubt our own capabilities even before giving it a try, those limitations become our comfort friend in situations where we just have an absolutely pathetic excuse of “ being not good at it ” just to avoid the situation.


We also sometimes feel what will happen if I try it and then it all goes wrong, I’ll be making a fool of myself in front of all those people and the person who told me it was not a good idea would be like “ I told you
