I love this. I have a lot of anxiety and unfortunately live in fear for the most part. I am looking for a new job and trying to be confident. Instead of looking at all my faults and how I wouldn't be good enough, this is the self-talk that would do some good. Thank you for posting this. You have spread some good through what helps you :)

"Simply start over. I want to know in advance every detail of my future course. Whether considering a new job, new friendship, new computer program, or simply ordering something new from the menu, I think I am due an exact accounting of the results before I begin. Since this is impossible, I never start. This is especially detrimental when I make a spiritual mistake and get bogged down over what went wrong instead of simply beginning again. To start over I must be will to take myself as I am, to work with what I have, and to do so in the present. Mistakes need only be corrected." Hugh Prather
