One of the worst things about doubt is if it becomes crippling. For one thing, it can cause people to be very scared of everything that has anything to do with what they are trying to achieve. One thing that could create a lot of doubt is that they can put a lot of stock into their goal and how it turns out for them. They put so much emotional investment into the project that if it fails them, it will be very emotionally crushing. Jason Hope himself has been faced with failures. This is one of the reasons that Jason has achieved such a high level of success. He did not let failure stop him from moving forward.
