You’re good at it

Even if you’ve never done it before, you can do it. There was a time when you had never done even those things at which you’re now most skilled. But you learned how, and you did them. You learned some more and improved.

You did it before and you can do it again. Think of all the things that at one time were new to you. Everything you know right now was at one time something new. You’ve discovered. You’ve learned. You’ve improved. You’re very experienced at going through that process. It has been happening from the moment you were born.

What you need to learn, you can learn. What you need to do, you can do. What you need to achieve, what you desire to achieve, you can indeed achieve. How intensely do you want it? What are you willing to do? How clearly can you see the reward? Those things matter very much.

You’re good at achievement, so choose carefully what you decide to achieve. Because you’ll get it.

— Ralph Marston
