I can’t tell you how many jobs I approached with fear. “There is no way I can do that!” or “I will never be as good as <predecessor>.” Almost every time, I was able to do the task and sometimes as good as those who came before me. I learned there is an initial fear of the work ahead. Once I understood there was a learning curve and knew I would have to work to learn, my journey was still arduous, but it was possible in my own mind. Don’t look at the next thing with fear of what you can’t do; rather, think about all of the times you did succeed.
