All great success and achievement is preceded and accompanied by hard, hard, work. When in doubt, 'try harder.' And if that doesn't work, try harder still!
I'm a super-duper over-analyzer. You mix that with self-doubt and pressure, and that's never healthy.
My philosophy is very simple: when in doubt, take a bath.

In this pleasing contrite wood-life which God allows me, let me record day by day my honest thought without prospect or retrospect, and, I cannot doubt it, it will be found symmetrical, though I mean it not and see it not. My book should smell of pines and resound with the hum of insects.

Without a doubt, I'd love to do Broadway. I actually can't wait to get back to musical theater.
I wake up every morning feeling lucky - which is driven by fear, no doubt, since I know it could all go away.

Tolerance, openness to argument, openness to self-doubt, willingness to see other people's points of view - these are very liberal and enlightened values that people are right to hold, but we can't allow them to delude us to the point where we can't recognise people who are needlessly perpetrating human misery.
I don't mind talking about 'what might have been,' but I am not one to doubt or regret most of my decisions.
