You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Strength inside you

You can handle a little risk. You can handle a little discomfort.

You can handle a little pain. You can handle a little inconvenience.

You can handle a little embarrassment. You can handle a little effort.

You can summon a little patience. You can summon a little discipline.

You can do whatever must be done when the reason is meaningful enough. You can get yourself to take the necessary action when it serves a worthy purpose.

What have you avoided, made excuses about, or put off until later just because you thought you couldn’t handle it? Imagine all the good that will come when you go ahead and utilize the strength that’s already there inside you.
