He can who thinks he can, And he can't who thinks he can't. This is an indisputable law.

Just one

When it seems that you’re overwhelmed with problems, pick just one and go to work on it. Suddenly the momentum will shift in your favor.

When you feel helpless to make a difference, stand up and take just one small step forward. And you’ll discover that you can indeed make a difference.

You’re not going to solve all the problems of the world before bedtime. Yet you can take many positive, productive steps in that direction.

It sure beats sitting around worrying about how bad things are. All the worrying in the world cannot equal the power of just one positive step.

Once you take that one step forward, you’ll find yourself wanting to do it again and again. Just one step can ignite your passion, and there’s no telling how far that will take you.

When you feel that there’s no use in making the effort, that’s precisely the time when even the smallest effort can make an enormous positive difference. Commit to taking just one step, and feel how great it can be.
