Stepping onto the stage to speak or into a contentious meeting, I always pause for a moment to remind myself that I am meant to be here and that I can make a difference. It’s not arrogance, but confidence. Similarly, standing chest-deep in a river, casting time after time for hours, I continue to watch the fly disappear under the surface of the water knowing that this is the cast that will catch a fish. Moments of self-doubt can start to invade, but you must dismiss them knowing that you are in the right place and doing what you are meant to do. It doesn’t always go your way in the end, but your odds of success drastically improve if you enter with positive thinking.
