InspirEmail No 263 - August 5th, 2013 - It couldn't be done
'Inspirational messages to refresh the spirit and boost the emotional bank account'


It couldn't be done

Somebody said that it couldn't be done, but he with a chuckle replied that 'maybe it couldn't,' but he would be one who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin on his face.

If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed . . . 'Oh, you'll never do that; at least no one ever has done it' . . . but he took off his coat and he took off his hat, and the first thing we knew he'd begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, without any doubting he started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, there are thousands to prophesy failure; there are thousands to point out to you, one by one, the dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, just take off your coat and go to it; just start to sing as you tackle the thing that 'cannot be done,' and you'll do it.

Another Chance

How often we wish for another chance to make a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes and change failure into winning.

It does not take a new day to make a brand new start,
it only takes a deep desire to try with all our heart.

To live a little better and to always be forgiving
and to add a little sunshine to the world in which we're living.

So do not give up in despair and think that you are through,
for there's always a tomorrow and the hope of starting new.
