“The expert in anything was once a beginner”

Oh how we forget this… We look at people and admire them for their skills and knowledge in certain areas. We allow that admiration to morph into intimidation. We start to question our own abilities and tell ourselves we are good enough to match those experts. We sell ourselves short.

We end up not applying for that job, not going out for the team, not bothering to delve deeper into our hobbies.

What if all the “experts” of their fields would have thought like that? It sure would have been a waste of unknown talent…
