The battle is not yours.

I've had lots of dreams and goals throughout my life.  I'm guessing you have too.  Some I have been able to accomplish easily and others are still an uphill battle.  When it seems like the odds are stacked against me, it's easy to give up hope or start to believe the negative voices that say "I can't do it".  Some of those voices belong to family or friends, who mean well, but in trying to protect me from disappointment, inadvertently make me doubt myself.  Some of those voices belong to people who don't have my best interest at heart and want to be a roadblock, preventing me from reaching my goals.  And one of those voices often comes from inside of me.
