How often do we underestimate our ability? We really so rarely think about this. And it costs us dearly.

An “aha” moment last night watching a portion of American Idol, when judge Keith Urban told a contestant to stop under estimating his voice. The judges see his potential, but the contestant doesn’t.

He’s a great singer, but doubts he is phenomenal.

And this applies to each of us as well.
