I just can’t….
- Climb Mount Everest
- Lose 30 pounds
- Run a race
- Live out my dreams
- Structure my day to workout
- Eat clean
You may never, but it doesn’t mean you can’t.
We tell ourselves all the time that we ‘can’t‘ do something, when we actually choose not to do something. There is no reason I have to do anything. Every single thing I do or don’t do in my life is a choice.
Stop playing the victim and get on with your big, audacious life.
There are a bazillion and one things that I am not going to do or accomplish in my lifetime.
My next goal in life could be a myriad of things such as scaling high mountain peaks, rappelling off cliffs, lifting small cars off the ground, running a marathon, or swimming the English Channel.
Plain and simple, I don’t want to.
It is more than ok to not want to do something. Give yourself permission, in fact choose, to not do things; many, many things. You are unique and have a specific purpose in life. If you try to do everything you will find yourself doing little to nothing.
- Are you passionate about it?
- Is it good for you?
- Will it help or hinder your life goals?
- What will you gain?
You can, but will you?
