What Do People Say You Can Not Do?

Don’t Let Anyone Tell You That You Can’t

Has anyone ever told you that you can’t do something?  The priest told my friend to ask me to move away from the microphone while we were singing.  That was 7th grade.  Now that I’m older, I’ve noticed that my voice sounds better when I sing next to higher or lower voices.  A wiser priest would have moved me next to a different person, not away from the microphone.  The moral of the story is, what someone else shares is a reflection of them, not you.

Ashlie once said that I succeeded in business because I always just knew I could.  It’s true.  I did.  I started out in business, in service to others.  I helped others.  I was lucky.  I believed in my ability and I knew I could help.  I had a proven record.  Then, because I helped my customers, they told their friends and word spread.  My business grew like a snowball rolling downhill.  Having other people see your value helps.  That’s why it’s important that you surround yourself with people who see you for your attributes. 

Our self esteem can affect our lives in relationships, academics, careers, mental health, and family.  We all have different feelings of confidence at times in our lives and none of us have more value than another.  



Signs that we are confident and can:

  • okay with fixing imperfections
  • able to set fair and reasonable boundaries
  • can handle reasonable conflict
  • are assertive but not aggressive

“Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” 

–Misty Copeland


It’s good to have a support system.

Have supportive friends.  That can include your friends on line, but have some live friends too.  Have a coach or mentor, either in business, health, or life or mental or spiritual health.  An accountability partner can help you stay on goal.  A group of people who are peers with similar beliefs and goals can be helpful to keep you attached and let you know you’re not alone.  Don’t forget family.  If you have a family member who you’re particularly close to, stay attached.
