Doubts, disbelief, the subconscious will to fail, the not really wanting to succeed, is responsible for most failures…A person is a product of his own thoughts. Believe Big.

Faith and Doubt in Science

“Doubt is an unavoidable part of belief. In the words of Paul Tillich, ‘Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith; it is an element of faith.’ If the case in favor of belief in God were utterly airtight, then the world would be full of confident practitioners of a single faith.’ But imagine such a world, where to opportunity to make a free choice about belief was taken away by the certainty of the evidence.” (pp. 33-34)
