Difficulties are in the seeing - or not seeing. Perhaps we should say in the not recognizing what is trueabout life.
Think about how frequently you tell yourself, or feel, “I can’t”, vs. how often you think, “I can do this, even though it’s hard.”
You can if you think you can.
And you must if you want change.
Remember that saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.” You can change what you are doing.
Let the connections to why you “can’t” go. Let the too’s go - too old, too young, too poor, too uneducated, too inexperienced.
You are perfectly imperfect, and perfectly capable of changing, one tiny step at a time.
The difficulties will become smaller. You will become bigger. You can. You will.
Start meditating every day. Start saying three gratitudes every morning before you get out of bed. Start eating more vegetables. Start reading a few great pages every day. Start talking to people who motivate you. Start loving people like crazy.
Go out there and start. Life is too good to wait. It’s wonderful to start. It’s wonderful to succeed.
