Empowering Tip: Just start the journey

Author Stephen King said something that really hit me, because it’s so true.  He said:  “You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”

This is so incredibly deep.  And yet I think it’s where society today is going awry.  Everyone is so pushed down by limitations.  People tell you, you can’t do that, you’ll never make it.

For instance, I want to be a music teacher.  But I don’t know how many people have told me I can’t because there aren’t any jobs.  For a while, I believed them; and then one day, I realized, I CAN get a job.  And if I work hard enough, and am brave enough, I WILL.

That can be with anything.  If you work, and if prove yourself, you can get what you want.  But you won’t know until you start that process.

I’m here to tell you guys right now, that you can do anything you put your mind to.  Sometimes it may take a while – it may take years.  But if you want it bad enough; and you know you can, and you know you should … then the only thing left is to start that adventure.

Don’t let people, and things, and society, hold you back.  You can do whatever you want to do, as long as you start that journey.
