In one of his first interviews after retiring, Kobe Bryant was asked about his doubts.

He comes off as a confident guy who is always willing to take the last shot, but he was asked by interviewer Jim Gray, “What doubts do you have about yourself?”

Kobe said, “Doubt is such a strange thing. There will be times that you succeed and times you fail, so wasting your time doubting whether you will succeed is pointless. Just put one foot in front of the other, control what you can control, and see what the outcome is. If you win, great - you will have to wake up the next day and do the journey all over again. If you lose - it sucks - but you will have to wake up the next day and do the journey all over again. Train as hard as you can and step out there and let it flow.”

All of us, including the great Kobe Bryant, have doubts. How you manage those doubts determines whether you will be the hero or the villain in your own story.
