I did not watch Monday night football, but I can guarantee that at least one player fell short of catching the football during a deep pass. Do you think it was the quarterback’s fault? After all, he runs the plays and it is his job to pass the ball perfectly to the receiver. Or is it?
Far too many times in life, we cut ourselves short from catching the touch-down pass because it was thrown a few feet too far and we do not push ourselves. We half-ass a project instead of full-assing it and then some, we stick with light work instead of taking on a heavy load and initiating beast-mode. Simply, we don’t work to our fullest potential.
The little train that could was wrong when he said “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.” That is weak, that is for four-year olds to say to themselves when they are reaching for the cookies on the top shelf.
You however, are Mighty, Powerful, Incredible and capable of achieving what you want.
Well, it is your choice now…
Why are you going to push yourself to reach that goal? Why are you going to push yourself to finish that project? Why are you going to push yourself to take those extra few steps?
“Because You Can. Because You Can. Because You Can!”
Be the football player that pushes himself to catch the ball that was thrown a bit too far. Don’t let the depth of the task prevent you from accomplishing it.
After all, the quarterback might throw you a farther pass because he knows you can push yourself to get it. The universe will never give you anything you cannot handle.
Stay Positive, Because you can.
