It's amazing what you can do

It's amazing what you can do when you set your mind to it

I want you to know you are not too old, it is never too late and that you can and will achieve all that you set your mind to.

I never thought I would leave my abusive marriage. How could I support myself? I liked the big lifestyle, I hadn't worked a full time job in years.

(Yes, I was working full time with him in our business but not one that actually gave me a paycheck)

When I left I was just starting a new business. I was scared, he made me scared. He constantly told me I couldn't do it, that I would be living in a box under 95 without him, so I never thought I could do this.

I never thought I could do a triathlon, I couldn't swim for God's sake? Hello??

I hated running, so what made me think I could do this?

Determination, the unstoppable will to say I can, I will, you watch and see, honestly that was it.

Look I get it, you have all these voices in your head telling you I'm to stupid, to scared, to weak, to old, to out of shape....fill in the blanks of your inner voice or the voices in your life that someone put there.

Yes, they don't believe it, and will tell you that all the time and yes, you might not even believe it but when you set your mind to something, oh watch out! Things happen, things you couldn't even imagine will start happening.

The only thing that is stopping you is .....YOU! Yes, you! You are your biggest, worst enemy, you tell yourself you can't do it.

I failed before, they said I can't...

You have to change your mindset, you have to want it so bad that it becomes your mission to prove them wrong.

Let me tell you how many times in that pool I looked like a drowning cat, coughing and swallowing water. I couldn't get my head in the water, arm thing together for months, I was a spaz!

I couldn't run around the block without thinking I was going to have to call 911!

Yet I refused to give up, I was afraid of the ocean, yet I was not going to let that stop me. Nothing was going to stop me. If I came in last, if it took me all day to finish, I was going to do this.

I kept going for months, not quitting, holding on for dear life, but holding on nonetheless. And guess what? I did it, with a broken toe, a stung ass and a torrential downpour with lighting and thunder!

I finished and I even surprised myself by placing 3rd in my age group! Let me tell you I never envisioned that but my point is nothing is impossible.

Hell if I can do it, you can definitely do it.

So today my friends, don't let anything stop you. You can do this, leave that marriage, let go of that horrible relationship, start a new business, run a marathon, do things you never thought you could got them, let them eat their words, and shut up that voice in your head for good!

You can and will do it...just hold on, keep the dream, nothing is impossible if you believe!

"Be the change you want to see"
