"When you've got something to prove, there's nothing greater than a challenge."
There's nothing you can do.
I don't know about you, but I truly detest hearing these deflating, self-defeating words directed at me. Having someone tell me that there is absolutely nothing that I can do, nothing I can contribute really gets me riled up. Why? Because I know that there is ALWAYS something I can bring to the table. Being told that I can't do something just does one thing - it makes me want to prove that person wrong. And prove that person wrong right now.
Good grief, I'm supposed to buy into somebody's notion that there's nothing I can do to make the situation better, nothing I can do to help solve the problem at hand? Nothing whatsoever? Give me a break.
People can sell me short all that they want because I'm not buying. And when it comes to people ripping your abilities, neither should you.
"There is nothing impossible to him who will try."
Alexander the Great
Unfortunately, some people do buy into this kind of negative nonsense. And buy in big time. A lifetime of being told that they're not good enough wears them down. The endless array of unwarranted criticism wears them out. Constantly reminded that they're not good enough, they're not smart enough; they're not this or that or the other, their self confidence wanes, their outlook on life suffers.
Before long, they're so beaten up and worn out, they eventually give in and accept the tripe being dished out by those all around them. They end up accepting their paltry lot in life, believing that there's nothing they can do about their unfortunate fate. These people are shattered - and so are their dreams.
"The man who gives up accomplishes nothing and is only a hindrance. The man who does not give up can move mountains."
Let's face it; nobody likes to be constantly reminded of their shortcomings. We all have them; not even one of us is exempt. But then again, so what? Unfortunately, there will never be a shortage of people willing to detail our faults and weaknesses. Worse yet, some of these purveyors of doom and gloom are going to be family members and friends.
Regardless of who's tossing out the negative bouquets, I'd like to offer up one piece of sound advice. Don't listen to what the naysayers say, friend and foe alike.
You've got to forget about what others say you cannot do and get busy doing them. And remember this: you possess tremendous God given talents and gifts that can take you anywhere you have ever dreamed of going. All you've got to do is put these abilities to work - and you're on your way.
"There is nothing that cannot happen today."
Nothing can hold back an individual who throws his or her entire heart and soul into something he or she wishes to accomplish; absolutely nothing on earth. The only thing that counts, the only thing that matters, the only thing that means anything whatsoever is what you believe... about yourself. Everything else is just empty, meaningless noise.
The moment you believe you can do it, and I mean really believe with all of your heart and soul - you're on your way to getting it done.
The next time someone tells you that you're not good enough; show them what you're made of.
The next time someone tells you that you're never going to make a difference, get busy making one.
The next time someone tells you that there's nothing you can do, stand up and prove show them wrong.
Nothing on earth can hold you back, nothing can hold you down and nothing can keep you from fulfilling your date with destiny. Nothing at all.
The Bottom Line: There's nothing you cannot do when you give it your all.
