Is it impossible, or just intimidating?
Think of whatever challenge is currently in your way, no matter what it is.
It’s probably something that’s taken either a huge mental or physical toll on you, or maybe even both. It’s probably stressed you out a lot just to think about it, yet you probably can’t stop thinking about it.
If it’s something you’re doing for the first time, like running your first long distance race, it might seem impossible and almost incomprehensible.
But, is it truly impossible, or just intimidating? Odds are it’s just intimidating, and it is fully possible to achieve and overcome the challenge at hand. You just have to believe in yourself and your ability to make it happen. It may get tough, and it may even be the hardest thing you’ve done so far, but then again nothing worth achieving should be easy. Just do the work it requires, keep moving forward and don’t stop believin’!
