"The most rewarding things you do in life are often the ones that look like they cannot be done."
You can't do it. You're not smart enough. You're not good enough. You don't have what it takes. There's no way you can make it happen. You don't have a chance. You'll never get the job done. Who hasn't heard these less than encouraging words way too many times in the past? Spoken by our friends and foes alike, these discouraging words can break us down and if we're not careful, can break us apart.
People are more than willing to chime in with their two cents when it comes to what we are capable of doing. Casually tossing out a million or more reasons why we can't do this or why we don't have that, the list of our limitations appears limitless if you listen to what they have to say. Some are well intentioned, while others are merely trying to tear you down. Either way, you need to make sure you don't listen to a negative word they have to say.
Especially about you.
"Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway."
Mary Kay Ash
Now that's not going to stop them. They're still going to constantly bombard you from every angle, continuously reminding you of your numerous weaknesses and shortcomings. If you buy into their nonstop negative nonsense, your confidence can become shaken and your spirits left in shambles. And if you're not careful, they can cause you to stop believing in yourself as well.
What others say or think about your capabilities means very little unless you allow their opinions to undermine your confidence and feelings of self-worth. So don't. The only thing that counts when it comes to how much you accomplish is what you BELIEVE about yourself. PERIOD!
"Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway."
Dr. Robert Anthony
That's right; the only thing that matters is what you believe. And you've got to start believing in yourself if you truly want to achieve the goals and aspirations you hold dear. Don't listen to the garbage the cynics constantly spew. Instead, listen to what your heart tells you to do. And then get busy following your heart as you passionately pursue your dreams.
The power of self belief is truly amazing. When you fervently believe you can do it, and I mean really believe it with all of your heart and soul, it's a cinch you'll get it done. On the other hand, if you believe you can't do it, it's a foregone conclusion you're going to come up short.
Isn't it high time that you started believing in your God given abilities?
"Some days there won't be a song in your heart. Sing anyway."
Whenever someone says you're not good enough, don't worry about it. Just knuckle down and do it anyway and show them you're plenty good enough.
Wherever someone tells you that you're not smart enough, just shake it off. Show them you've got more than enough smarts to accomplish anything you set your sights on doing by doing it anyway.
The moment someone tells you that you don't have what it takes, go ahead and do it anyway. By rolling up your sleeves and getting to work, you'll get the job done.
Happiness is about chasing your own dreams, pursuing your passions and making your life all it could be and more. And doing what others say can't be done.
Who says you're not good enough? No one worth listening to, that's for sure.
The Bottom Line: Do it anyway and you'll get it done.
