Henry Ford said a great many wise things.
My favorite: “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
And this is never more powerful to remember at a turning point, like the start of a new year, when we look forward with hope, excitement, and – yes – sometimes even fear.
It’s OK to be afraid. Just remember that it can’t stop you from doing what you need to do. And the key to overcoming that fear isn’t to wait for it to go away.
The key is to decide on the next right thing to do, acknowledge the fear, and then do the right thing anyway.
Your self-belief must be strong enough to propel you past the doubt. Call it faith if you want to – in yourself or something more powerful.
But hold onto that belief during the tough times because this committed mindset and bravery will be tested repeatedly.
- Can I have the healthy life I want?
- Can I be the kind of partner/parent/friend/employee I aspire to be?
- Can I love myself and those around me every day, even when it’s hard?
- Can I do something as big as a triathlon or Ironman?
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t… YOU’RE RIGHT.
Resolve to make a positive choice. To believe in yourself.
