You can do anything you want.
I know it’s something we say to each other all the time.
And sometimes we mean when we say it.
But usually we don’t.
We try and encourage each other to do things that are way out of our comfort zones.
And we see the role models of success around us.
So we say the words, and go to the seminars.
And do the affirmations and vision boards.
But we don’t believe it.
So I’m telling you with total honesty, as someone who has done some really hard things in the recent past…
It is really freakin’ hard.
But it is possible.
And the effort is worth it.
A few days ago I asked people what they were proud of.
Here are a few of the answers…
My sons who all turned out to be great guys,
and daughter who finished school with all A’s
even though she has been battling severe panic
attacks, Hashimoto Thiroiditis and depression.
My husband and kids
I am proud of myself… for having the courage
to start my own business and not giving up after
Helping people overcome some form of pain by
writing a book that helps others in a similar situation.
My college degrees! I still to this day am shocked I did it!
A website I’m working on right now. Incomplete but
I’m liking my thought process.
Just launched the first tangible product of my business.
My kids and grandkids. I’m also proud of myself…
went back to college while working a 7 day midnight shift.
Proud that I created a business over 40 years ago that
now is the main source of income for me and most of
my son’s and granddaughters.
I am proud that I can make wooden doll house furniture
look better then factory quality.
Hitting rock bottom and climbing back out.
See yourself in any of those?
Ordinary people who decided to put down their fear
and do something that made them feel alive.
Or help other people.
Whatever it is you’re looking to do…
You can be proud of the stuff in your life.
And you can make it something you do all
You are good enough to make miracles happen.
You don’t have to know it right now.
I’ll know it for both of us.
And you can do anything you want.
And if you want some help getting there, I know how to help you.
