You can do it.

I know you don’t think you can do it. But you can do it. I can see you can do it.

To me it’s so obvious that you can do it. I believe in you.

But you don’t think you can do it. And I think I know why.

A lot of people told you that you couldn’t do it. But that’s mostly because they haven’t seen it done before. And they’ve told themselves it can’t be done over and over. They told themselves that they couldn’t do it — which was negative enough all by itself. But at a certain point, something flipped over in their brains… and not only were they convinced that they couldn’t do it, but they were convinced that no one could do it.

They told themselves no so much that they started to say it other people. And you were one of those people.

And you believed them. Because why would they tell you that you can’t do something if it’s not true?

It was always about them though. It was never about you.

You can do it.

Now, does that mean it’s going to be easy? No. It’ll probably be really hard. It’s going to be more work than anything you’ve ever done. But I know you can do the work. The good news is that you don’t have to do it all at once. You have so long to work out the details.

But you need to start.

You don’t think you can do it. But the good news is that thinking you can do something and actually doing that thing have less of a relationship than the Disney movies led us to believe.

In fact, it’s possible to not believe in yourself, not emotionally — but do the work anyway — and to wake up one day having done the thing everyone said was impossible, completely amazed.
