“If I can do it, you can do it!”
I HATE that saying!
Why? Because I’m different than you! Because you’re different than me! Because there isn’t a right or wrong way to walk this journey! Because there ARE things that I can do that you just can’t! Because there ARE things that you can do that I just can’t!
You’re doing amazing things! I worked my ass off to get here. If you work your ass off, you’ll get there too. That’s it!
No gimmicks, no double back guarantees… but wait there’s more!!!!
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE: you become an inspiration to someone! You drive them to keep going. You show the world your capable of amazing things and maybe, just maybe, someone else will think well that person looks like they’re having fun and I want to try that too! Maybe it will work for you…..maybe it won’t….. and that’s OK! We’re all made differently and shouldn’t be compared by someone else’s bar.
So, instead of “if I can do it, you can too”, let’s try for “I did it, now you go try!”
