I saw this bumper sticker on a car on my way to work this morning, and it got me thinking...
I know that something like this typically has religious overtimes, but what is to preclude its application to other aspects of life, too? I mean, if you have no hope achieving a goal, then you're most likely not going to work very hard to get there, right?
I think that this has beena big gotcha for me for a very long time... I have had people telling me I would never amount to anything for most of my life. After hearing it long enough, it became difficult for me to believe otherwise.
More recently, though, I have been able to make changes for the better in my life. I'm beginning to believe that I can succeed in achieving my goals, as long as I focus on small steps and small successes.
I think that losing the weight and getting fit is probably the most difficult task I have ever set for myself, at least from my point of view... but now, I am starting to feel that I can do this... yes, there is hope for me yet.
