There comes a time when we realize our problem stems from the fact that we are pretentious. And judgmental about ourselves. And that we are so afraid of mediocrity, that we would rather not do something than to do it badly. Which is worse, of course.
There also comes a time, roughly 20 seconds after the previous epiphany, where we drop the unnecessary garb of the royal "We".
Very Ayn-Rand-ish, but not too bad for a Friday. For which "I" am Thanking God. Profusely.
