Do you know how many times in my life I have been told that I can’t do something?
I have never been a great listener. That has worked to my favor and hurt me at the same time. I never really cared what anyone thought of me. It is a very difficult task to say or write something that offends me. Yet, those same characteristics were what allowed me to try and do things in the face of “reason” from friends and family.
I am just writing to give some encouragement to those that need the last straw to get them going. People are sedentary by nature. Change isn’t a comfortable situation for most people. I have been cautioned by many people for choices that I have made, and I have been told by others that my chances for success were limited at best. Some people opined out of genuine concern, while others did it out of a sense of resentment that I was trying something that they knew they wouldn’t/couldn’t try themselves.
The simply fact is that you CAN DO IT! Whatever it is you are trying, with enough effort and desire you can make it happen. I am not suggesting that you take unreasonable risks, but all efforts that are truely worth it take some risk. Don’t give in to the nay sayers. They are the “do nots” of the world.
Now people will look at my situation and say I got where I am because of “chance” or “luck”. Rubbish! Sure, nothing is guaranteed, but I would have no chance of success if I didn’t get out and try. That is what I want you to do. Get out and try, and put the reaons why you can’t behind you. Sometimes all it takes is someone to say they believe in you.
