It’s tempting sometimes to look at envy upon those who are living the life that we dream of and think that this isn’t possible for us.

We assume that others are luckier or made a certain way.

Perhaps we believe that we are somehow incapable or less deserving of success.

But let me ask you…

If others can have a fulfilling career, why not you?

If others can learn new skills, why not you?

If others can have meaningful relationships, why not you?

If others can set bold, audacious goals that are as scary as hell, why not you?

If others can get up at the crack of dawn to maximise their day, why not you?

If others can be optimistic about the future, why not you?

If others can improve their fitness, be disciplined in their eating and get their weight under control, why not you?

If others can read everyday to expand their minds, why not you?

If others can take substantial risks, believing in their skills and God-given purpose, why not you?

If others can build a reputation for excellence and world-class work, why not you?

If others can pray, meditate or spend time reading scriptures regularly, why not you?

If others can write a book, create art or perform in public, why not you?

If others can be vulnerable, why not you?

If others can be successful, why not you?

No more excuses.

Other people can do it.

Why not you?
