You may be an adult being told by parents that you will not amount to anything and that you will not be able to survive on your own. You may be a woman being told by your spouse that you will never learn to drive on the highway or handle the banking. You may be a man who has always been told that you cannot cook to save your life. You may be an employee who is being told that you will not be able to handle the senior position in the company that you are applying for. Without realizing it, we allow others to convince us that there are many things we cannot do, and even that we are not worth anything.  

How do you gather courage in the face of negativity? Start out slow. Take baby steps. Solicit help. Do small things. Score small victories. When someone says that you are incapable of sending an email, become all the more determined to accomplish this simple task. Learn from others who know how to do it, ask questions, make mistakes, and learn from them. Also know that if one person can do something, everyone else can do it also.

Determination and effort will work hand in hand to give you success. Once you are determined, you will find that the entire universe will move to help you. You are a special child of God and you can do anything you want to do. Believe this. Believe in yourself. Have faith in God. You can accomplish the most challenging task. However, do not think that you will be able to change yourself overnight. Change will come gradually.  

Gather courage and move ahead.



Yours,
