Pick something. Pick something today that you’ve always told yourself “I could never.” Then go and try it. Get a little dirty. Fall flat on your face. Fail miserably. Then go back and try it again tomorrow. Repeat this pattern every day until the thing you said you would never be able to do, becomes the thing you’re doing. Only then will you realize that you were never a failure, just a slow success. With the right attitude you have nothing to lose. Effort means you can only gain. You gain wisdom, you gain knowledge, you gain strength, you gain endurance, you gain self-discipline, you gain perspective and you get to learn a whole lot along the way. Once you understand that you are capable of so much more than you give yourself credit for, the possibilities are endless. Then you get the privilege of encouraging others on their journey.
