You can

How much time do you spend telling yourself all the reasons you can’t do the things you want to do?

How much energy do you put into telling yourself what you can’t accomplish?

I’m willing to bet that you sometimes imagine another life with a new job, wealth, travel, or whatever it is that represents the life you want. What would happen if you spent more time with your dreams and less time coming up with reasons they can’t come true?

The fact is, you have more potential than you will come close to reaching in a lifetime. The odds are in your favor as long as you put in the effort. Even so, it may feel like the cards are stacked against you. It may feel like you can’t pull yourself up or like you can’t escape your present circumstances. It’s okay to feel this way sometimes, but remember that it’s not the truth.

Look to nature to understand the reality that your growth is not dependant on your surroundings. Flowers grow through cracks in city sidewalks, trees grow from the edge of cliffs, and great women and men grow out of adversity.

No amount of dirt or decay will change the fact that life finds a way.
