"You must do the thing you think you cannot do." –
Sometimes we just get in our own way. Like when it comes to making or breaking a habit. Sometimes we don’t start or stop a habit, make a change, take a bow or forge a new beginning because we don’t think we are able to.
Somewhere along the way we get convinced or convince ourselves that we just really aren’t the kind of person who can (fill in the blank) exercise, lose weight, quit smoking, start over.
That conviction that we just can’t
because we just aren’t
that sort of person is a really comfortable excuse. I know. I used it for years.
But you know what? You are exactly
that person and there’s nothing that changes an opinion of yourself faster than to go about doing the very things you think you can’t.
Maybe you didn’t take me up on my January 6th double-dog dare. You can take me up on it today. Just for today. Come on. Just for me. Do the one thing you think you cannot.
