You can do it! Whatever it is, whatever the challenge or goal, you can do it. Too often we find ourselves surrounded by naysayers and people who doubt us and question our abilities. And sometimes the biggest offenders are our own thoughts. So in case you haven't heard it enough lately, let me say it again... YOU CAN DO IT!
People do amazing things every day. They conquer new heights, set new records, traverse new ground. If they can do the unthinkable, the unimaginable, then I guarantee you, you can change your body, get that promotion, start a successful business, write a book, or save up for that trip you've always wanted to go on. It isn't always going to be easy, there will be struggles along the way, and you will fail, but if you try, if you give it your all, and you don't give up, you can do it.
So often we hit a bump in the road and decide we can't do it at all and give up. Too many times we let other people's opinions of our own abilities stop us dead in our tracks. If you knew you couldn't fail or did not fear the judgment of others, what would you do? That is the goal you should pursue. The old adage "If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life" is so true it's startling. And we all deserve to be happy with both work and play. Go after what you want, what will make you happy, and support those around you in doing the same thing.
Need a place to start? Pick one thing you've been wanting and meaning to do for a while and sit down today and do it. Just something small. Been meaning to go see that new movie? Do it, even if you can't get someone to go with you. Want to try that new restaurant in town, but no one's been free to try with you? Go by yourself and try a couple of dishes on the menu. Thinking about trying a new workout program or joining a class? Go check it out today (most places will let you drop in on a class or tour a place before signing any contracts). Do something you've been putting off because you don't think there's a good reason to do it or you think you need someone else to do it with you. It will be empowering and set you off in the right direction to make more of your goals come to fruition.
If you needed a sign, THIS IS IT! You can do it, I believe in you!
