We are quick to pass judgements on what is possible.
Before we take measurement on what we are capable of learning, building, achieving, our thoughts gravitate to the magnitude of the obstacles ahead. And we pass judgement, based on our current state of affairs.
In doing so, we fail to realize how powerful we truly are.
Instead of looking at tasks as “possible” or “impossible”, ask ourselves â€“ how hard as we willing to work?
If we donâ€™t have the skills required to get the job â€“ we can learn them.
If we donâ€™t have the 400lb back squat â€“ we can forge it.
If weâ€™ve never ran more than a mile before, we can build our capacity to run in the Boston Marathon.
Itâ€™s not whether itâ€™s possible or not â€“ letâ€™s take those out of our vocabulary.
Itâ€™s how hard we willing to work. How much we are willing to sacrifice.
How far, we are willing to go.
