Do I hold myself back?

Have you ever felt sometimes that the only thing that holds you back is yourself? I had an experience like that today. I was offered a great opportunity, and all I could think about was about my inadequacies and limitations.  But then as I talked to my family about this privilege, they were excited for me and complimented me on strengths and no one mentioned any of my limitations. I realized then, that I am the only one holding myself back. Wow, even at the ripe age of 51...I have a lot to learn!  Good night dear friends!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go.
~ Dr. Suess
