You really can do anything that you can think of doing, you truly can.
Gandhi said, "Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability."
As a manager of people and processes, I talk to people for a living and it never ceases to amaze me how often we all limit ourselves by how we think. The world can often be tough on us, but too often we are harder on ourselves.
We tell ourselves that we can't do something or how hard things are for us to change, but we don't try to actually do what we what.
People do amazing things everyday, all over the world, because they know they can.
You just have to try.
Go make a sales call, put that idea on kickstarter, write that book.
People do it every day.
“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
