Dreams and Doubts
By Alfonzo Tucker (Columnist)
Published January 27, 2012

Hello World! I’ll start this article with a question, “Are your dreams consumed by your Doubts?”

I ask you to read this article with an open and clear understanding of your personal worries, fears, qualms, uncertainties or what choice of reservations you choose as doubts! The goal I desire to achieve within the few words you read is this, “Allowing the energy within your doubts to fuel the accomplishment of your dreams!”

Energy is exerted in many different ways as both a negative and positive expense! Every thought you conceive has the opportunity to breathe. Those thoughts may breathe life into the behaviors that cause the energy you evoke as negative or positive. For example, you may be tired, unsocial and reclusive within your personal behavior! Those are energy expenditures of doubt. The operative word within the previous sentence was “expenditures!” If your mind and body are capable of spending precious moments of negative energy on doubt, imagine transferring that same expense to a positive state of mind. The physical effort alone will lead to a positive prospect.

For those of you who have a perfectionist mentality, and often fall short of pursuing your goals because your results are not flawless. Please take heed to the following! Your personal idea of perfection may be higher then those who will either patronize your work or follow your services. Thus the customers you desire to target are deprived because of your personal doubts.

Your dreams have enough energy to challenge any negative thought your doubts will produce! When you are experiencing a moment when your behavior and decisions can alter your life, for the better, use whatever energy within you to move forward. You may be pessimistic, you may be insecure, and there may even be challenging persons around you with adverse banter and decorum. Take that energy and use it in a transverse fashion!

Trust that all you strive to accomplish will come true! I know this for a fact as I have blossomed within the mentality of allowing my dreams to become a pursuit! I regards to short comings and insecurities, I have never known my biological mother, while living with my biological father he was addicted to drugs and as a result of that, I grew up as a depended of the state of California in foster care.

I discuss that aspect of my life because it is no longer a negative; I have transformed those issues to positive experiences, which give me the energy to accomplish my dreams. From a cliché standpoint, “I am only human” yet my abilities as a human allow me to have limitless dreams! And the common doubts within me grant me more energy when I am in need!
