Working out can teach you a lot about yourself. I can do a hard 45 minute run on the elliptical, really pushing myself, and I’m fine the whole way through… until the last 5 or 10 minutes.
At which point I am convinced that I can’t possibly make it, that I will never make it, and that the end is impossibly far away.
Even THIRTY SECONDS to the end, it’s all I can do to stay on the elliptical, so certain am I that I’m never going to make it.
I’m the same way with my WIP. At the eleventh hour, I feel like all hope is lost.
Same with life.
I wish, at times, I could change the timing of my self-doubt, but it seems fixed. I wish I could change the existence of it, too, but such is life. One foot in front of the other, though.
What about you? At what hour is your self-doubt the greatest? Is there a point at which you have to muscle through on blind faith that things will work out, even though you can’t see it?
