When Something Is Everything And Anything Is Possible.

Anything is possible.

Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it won’t ever happen.

Just because you’ve tried and failed doesn’t mean that’s how it will always be.

Times change. People change. Your situation can change.

Your situation will change.

You’ve got to work like you believe it’s just about to happen.

You’ve got to put in that final burst of effort you get when you see the finish line just ahead.

Even when you don’t.

You have to remind yourself that anything is possible.

Take a deep breath.

Remember back to when things were different than they are now.

Where you are now is different than where you used to be. And you’ll be in a different place again soon.

But until you get there, you’re dealing with right now. Right here. This moment. This obstacle.

The choice is simple.

You can remain paralyzed and hope that your circumstances automatically change. Or you can do one thing that matters.

You can take back control of your destiny. Even though it feels awkward and uncomfortable. And mostly a waste of your time.

You can make progress — small amounts of improvement. Even though you’re tired and frustrated.

You can do that.

Just move a little bit closer to where you want to do. Don’t try to do 10 things or 5 or 2. Just focus on doing one thing that matters.

It will feel like nothing. But it will be everything.

In that moment, you’re doing the only thing that matters. Something.

And that something is what eventually makes anything possible.
