Why You Can Always Do More Than You Think You Can But Won’t.

You can work harder than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try. You can learn faster than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can keep giving longer than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can dreams bigger than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can live more boldly than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can push the limits a little bit more than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can dig deeper more than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can fight through the fatigue longer than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can take being laughed at more than you think you can. But if you think you can’t, you probably won’t even try.

You can always do more than you think you can.

But you won’t find out if you’re not willing to try.

And sometimes trying means you get hurt and fail. That you have to pick yourself back up off the street and get back headed towards where you want to be.

Trying is your way to ‘win in the moment’. It’s your way to take a risk on “you”. 

And if you won’t do that for you, why should anyone else believe that you are worth it?

Believing in yourself doesn’t magically solve your problems, but it solves the biggest problem of all — getting started in the first place.

Chances are, you’ll surprise yourself with how good you really are after taking that first step.
