Losing confidence in your goals

Think of the way you felt about goals and dreams when you were a kid. It was straightforward, simple, and beautiful. You just thought, “I want to do that” and your brain didn’t start pitching you all the reasons you couldn’t do it, the way it does as we age. Social media can make that trend even stronger, unfortunately. Hussain says those who spend a lot of time on it, “They experience a lot of self-doubts, questioning who they are and what they are doing in life. They may ask questions like: Can I really make it? Am I enough? Who am I to think I can do this?”
