"Ever notice that 'what the hell' is always the right decision?"

- Marilyn Munroe

"Never ask whether you can do something. Say instead that you are going to do it, then fasten your seat belt."

- Julia Cameron      


"Life is easier than you'd think; all that is necessary is to accept the impossible, do without the indispensable, and bear the intolerable."


-Kathleen Norris


"So much attention is paid to the aggressive sins, such as violence and cruelty and greed with all their tragic effects, that too little attention is paid to the passive sins, such as apathy and laziness, which in the long run can have a more devastating effect."


-Eleanor Roosevelt

Watch ME

Yes, you can watch ME. I won't succeed every time, but I will succeed.

Those who say I can do it, or it can't be done, watch me. Watch ME do it.  With determination, focus, and practice I can do it. You telling me I can't do it only motivates me all the more.

You can do it, too, if you believe you can. We can all do more than we think, if we work at it and ignore those who say we can't.

Life is to be lived, to be experienced, and to go, do, and be. We are to stretch, we are to learn, we are to succeed. We just need to work at it.

How many times have you heard, 'It can't be done?" Look back over history, how many things have been done that were thought to be impossible to do?

People run four minute miles on a regular basis. We have landed on the moon. We have computers and telephones that do more than ever imagined. Most of what we use today on a daily basis was impossible, or thought to be impossible one hundred years ago.

Ours is a continually expanding universe. What was impossible is now the ordinary. What was unknown is now known. We advance more and more each year.

Don't let others hold you back or tell you 'NO'.  Who are they to tell you what to do, to judge you, and to decide what you can or cannot do?  Whose life is it? Who is the captain? Who has to live with what was or was not done?

If you want to see what can be done, watch a child. The first five years are all doing, doing things they couldn't do. Have you ever watched a baby learn to walk? They fall more than a thousand times. Yet, they keep getting back up and trying again. They try until they get it. Then, they move on to the next impossible thing to do. They do that also.

The babies don't know they "can't".  No one has told them, so they do it.

When we were young we never knew the word 'failure'. We only knew, instinctively, to continue to try until we did it. Failure was not an issue or an option. Learning how to do it was the goal. Learning how to do it is what we did.

Watch me fail.  Each time I fail I am closer to doing it.

Watch me try, watch me study, watch me practice, watch me do it!
