I've quoted this phrase many times since as I completely believe it.
This morning I saw this photo up on facebook
My first thought was.... this is great, here is my inspiration for today.
Then I got thinking about it a little more and CAN'T popped into my head. What exactly can I not do? I suppose if my thought process was, "geez if I cannot fly to space today then I suppose I am not gonna go for my run tonight"
However if I look at it in the form of WHERE I am right now then I suppose I could say, "I am unable to run 5K at this time in my life so why bother running at all tonight"
But I WILL run 5K..... maybe not today, or even tomorrow..... but I WILL run 5K by the end of June.
I won't even talk about my future goal... it is too big right now and scares me too much to think about it... instead I will focus on the 5K race July 1st.
This quote is more appropriate.
Take baby steps along the way and in the end you will have reached your goal
