A lot of people ended up where they were not supposed to be because they refused to say no when yes was not the first answer that came into their mind when the question was asked. This is called doubt. The following are my favourite quotes on the topic.
“When in doubt; don’t.”
“Whatever decision you make after you overcome doubt is the right decision.”
“Wise men; when in doubt as to whether to speak or remain silent; give themselves the benefit of the doubt and remain silent.”
“It’s better to be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”
“When in doubt as to which story to tell; tell the truth.”
“Listen to other people’s opinions, not their doubts.”
“When doubt moves in so does procrastination.”
“When you remove doubt; you remove your fears.”
“The intelligent as so full of doubt when the ignorant are so full of confidence.”
“No is a perfectly good answer if you are unable to overcome your doubts.”
Doubt is an interesting topic, you can spend a life time wondering if you’ve made the right decision or you can spend a few nano seconds saying NO!
