Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.
This was said by Mahatma Gandhi. I read it on my friend’s facebook and it hit me in a good way. A few years back there were things I thought I couldn’t do and flash forward to now and I’m doing them.
- I am a mother and wife
- I live in a beautiful home
- I run my own business
- I sew
- I crochet
- I color, highlight, and cut people’s hair into a miracle
- I transform people with makeup
- I have an amazing supportive family
- I have friends that love me
- I am HAPPY everyday
These are all things I thought I couldn’t do or couldn’t have. Make a list of your accomplishments. When I do this, it reminds me that I am capable of many things and I shouldn’t let my insecurity or doubt get in my way. I encourage you guys to think of something you think you “can’t do” and DO IT. You just might surprise yourself. If you ever feel a doubt just remind yourself of everything you’ve already accomplished. You can do anything you set your mind to. I believe in you 🙂
When I was in middle school, my principal would say every morning on the announcements – “Have a super, fantastic, wonderful day. You have the power within you to make it so. It’s up to you.”
I heard that everyday for almost 3 years and never thought twice about it. Now at almost 30 years old I apply it to my life each day-wisdom doesn’t always come in shiny packages.
