Here you are. Do you feel that sometimes you underestimate what you’re capable of? Even though you might project a certain level of confidence, you don’t really go for it. You might have reasons or excuses why this is so. We all do.

These limitations are based upon our perceived history and past experiences. We sell ourselves short. We’re more capable than we realize.

It builds from there. Success begets more success. But we have to put ourselves our there.

It’s not a straight climb. Along the way there might be a few detours and obstacles in the form of disappointments. It’s part of the journey. But we learn from these disappointments. We learn about our strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge prepares us to even go further.

When we have a purpose for what we’re doing it’s even easier.
Yes the obstacles will still show up, but know that they’re part of the terrain.

Imagine you are in a marathon, but it’s a different kind of race. The winner isn’t the stronger or faster one, but the one who thinks they can. You can. Life is challenging. So learn to enjoy these challenges. It’s what makes life most interesting. And it is what it is.

Each day and each situation is an opportunity for you to learn about your capabilities. Greatness awaits you. Move forward. You being you, makes a difference.
