It takes effort to move forward. It takes courage and determination. Fortunately, you are filled with courage and determination. Yes, you may feel some fear and trepidation. But courage is not the lack of fear. Courage is the ability to feel your fear, to listen to what it has to say, to allow it to prepare you, and to move forward. Determination is surely yours. You know what you desire. You know why you desire it. Just keep those things in your mind and you’ll have plenty of determination. It’s not complicated. It’s within your reach.
Yes, you have your limitations. Yet no limitation can hold you back when you’re determined to transcend it. Everything you have ever accomplished has been done in spite of your limitations. Over and over again you’ve proven that the limitations, whatever they may be, need not stop you. They challenge you and make you stronger.
Are there obstacles? Yes, of course there are. Nothing worthwhile comes easy. In fact, it is precisely the challenge involved in reaching it that makes anything valuable.
What is the most positive, wonderful thing you can imagine for yourself, for your life, for the ones you love, for the world in which you live? When you can imagine it, you’re well on the way to making it a reality. If it were impossible there would be no way you could even conceive of it. Live with the knowledge and the assurance that the best you can imagine is indeed available to you, is indeed possible for you.
You are filled with valuable experience. The things you’ve done and learned and seen and lived through have left behind a unique and powerful substance of experience which is yours alone. It would be a shame for that to go to waste. It is yours to make use of, yours to build upon, yours from which to grow. By making this present moment count, by tapping into the value of your experience and doing something productive with it, you also make all the past moments count even more. You cannot live in the past, yet you can draw from the value you created there. Invest today’s actions with the wealth of experience you’ve accumulated, and that investment will immediately begin to pay dividends.
You are just as good, just as worthy, just as valuable as anyone. No one is better than you. You are the best there is. Inside you is the potential to do, or be, or have anything you desire. No one has more than that. Some may have progressed farther down the path at this moment, but that doesn’t make them any better than you. Your life is filled with possibility. You are worthy of reaching for the greatest of accomplishments. And you are worthy of achieving them, no matter what other people think of you, no matter what your job title is, no matter what you have done up to this point in life. You are worthy of the best.
