How did I end up here?
Why don’t I believe I can do it?
What limits am I putting on myself that I’m not even aware of?
What am I really capable of?
How can I change the world?
What’s holding me back?
What am I so afraid of?
Who says it has to be this way?
Who would join my cause?

What am I waiting for?
Will I be happy in ten years if I don’t do this now?
