The only mistake you should be afraid to make is not trying.
Sunday, May 13, 2007
This a such a good piece of advice. How will you ever know if you can do something if you never try. We put such limitations on ourselves when we
tell ourselves that we cannot do something. What is there to be afraid of?
A lot of the time we are afraid because we focus on the goal, and not on what it is we need to do to make that goal a reality. It just seems so overwhelming. Instead, it helps to just look at what we need to do today.
Exercise for 15 minutes. Eat within our points range. Drink those 8 glasses of water. Okay, if 8 glasses is too much for now, drink 2 or 4, then gradually work your way up to 8. If you can't exercise for 15 minutes, then do something for 5 minutes today. Then six tomorrow.
The only limitations are the ones we put on ourselves. We can do anything we set our minds to do! We can choose to tell ourselves that we can't do something, or we can tell ourselves that we CAN do it.
