Consider the possibilities

Before you decide something is too much trouble, step back. Is it really, or are you just making excuses?

Before you conclude something is out of your reach, pause and ask yourself. Is it really, or are you just reluctant to venture away from what’s familiar and comfortable?

There are many factors that can hold you back. Don’t let your own thinking, your own assumptions, your own generalizations be among those factors.

It’s easy to know something is possible and practical if you’ve already done it. For everything else, don’t let yourself be too quick to dismiss it.

Think of things you now take for granted that were once considered out of reach. Some of your assumptions may no longer be valid, even those that were once indisputable.

With each day, with each discovery, with each turn of events, new possibilities are born. Don’t let the best ones pass you by just because you think they’re not for you.

— Ralph Marston
