Dependence on crowdsourced confidence leaves you on shaky ground.
Your intention is what you want. Your attention is what you focus on. To make progress consistently, your intention & attention must be aligned!
Keep going. You will want to quit. You won't want to do the work. You will be tired. There will be excuses and exceptions. You've taken those detours before and you know how it feels. Don't quit - stay the course - keep going!
We listen to our internal dialogue all day long. As Ben Bergeron says, "No one will coach you more than that voice" and it will either be your best coach or your worst coach.

“Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not.

"We are drowning in information while starving for motivation"
Former United States Supreme Court Justice William Douglas shared a very candid truth about how decisions are made in the high court:

Your fears are merely paper tigers - don't let them stop you!
We focus too much on changing our behavior. Our behavior is driven by thought. If you want to change what you do, change how you think.
"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity and an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." Winston Churchill
