potential and triumph

ok, so I survived. I actually went into work, and I made it through the day, even though I felt like something someone brought in from the bottom of their shoe.

I’ve come to realize that I often underestimate myself. I am frequently faced with what seems like my own inabilities, yet I find that I can actually succeed at what seemed so daunting. All I have to do is push forward. That sometimes seems like such a huge step, but once it is done, it loses its intimidation factor. It is no longer something I can’t do… but merely something I did, and can do again if I really wanted to.

I think most people probably feel this way. I have heard that we only use a small percentage of our brain power. Just think of what could be accomplished if we believed what we are actually capable of. That’s terrifying, yet liberating.

So, I am going to make a conscience effort to take those steps that seem so futile. After all, the only way to fail is to not try at all.
