One year ago, I believed in the word impossible.
Now, I think it’s so foolish!
Are you someone who believes in the statements, “I can’t,” “That won’t work for me,” or “I’m not good at that?” I was, for a long time. I believed I was going to go to college, graduate with my bachelors, become a nurse, get my masters, get married, buy a house, start a family….
I didn’t believe that much outside of that itinerary would “work for me.” This was always my path, and I was meant to follow it, right? This is the stable path, the one my family and friends would be proud of, the one they expected me to take…
But it wasn’t the most fulfilling one. I’d always wanted to start a blog or a Youtube channel… but I didn’t know what to write or talk about. I’d love the opportunity to travel the world and make money from home… but I’m no good at sales and don’t want to ask people to buy things from me. So, I would just stay this set path… happy – but feeling something was missing.
Getting off that path took a leap of faith. It was when I enrolled to be a health coach – I had NO idea what I was going to do with that certification or what would come after. But by taking several more risks after that – including actually announcing to people my plans and putting myself out there – I started to realize that “impossible” doesn’t exist.
I think that “impossibility” is just fear.
It’s an excuse that holds you back from having what you want. It gives you reason to accept the way things are and bury any desire for change. The word impossible prevents you from taking action and makes you believe that something is, unfortunately, impossible.
However, that’s not the truth. The truth is that you can have and accomplish everything and anything you desire. There are no limits. While some things do take time, you may be surprised at how fast you can achieve something once you finally believe it’s POSSIBLE.
So, how do you start?
I know it’s easier said than done. BUT, think of your ultimate goal. Buy a planner – even just a $3 one. Every morning and every night, write it down. Make your goal something REAL, even if it’s just pen on paper – it’s more real than just floating around in your mind!
Now, when thinking about the day ahead, think – “What can I do today that will bring me closer?”
If your goal is to lose 20 pounds, maybe today you could go for a 20 minute run. If your goal is to start your own business, maybe today you schedule an hour to research what avenue to take. If your goal is to become a Youtube sensation, maybe make a list of what kinds of videos you want to make. There is always something you can do every single day to bring yourself to your goals.
The hardest part is to not lose hope. That’s why I recommend writing down your goals every day, twice a day. Let that be your motivation, until you truly BELIEVE that this is possible for you. You’ll begin to see results, I promise! And the act of writing down your goals will help to retrain your brain into BELIEVING your goal is right around the corner… because it is!!!
Go get ‘em!
