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?
Why hasn’t anyone tried it that way before?
What if I did it anyway?
Why can she do it, but I can’t?
What if I say no?
What if I say yes?
What’s the worst that could happen?
What am I waiting for?
Will I be happy in ten years if I don’t do this now?
