InspirEmail No 282 - August, 2014 - 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 or quiddit, 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.

Inside Of You

There is inside you all of the potential to be whatever you want to be . . . all of the energy to do whatever you want to do.

Imagine yourself as you would like to be, doing what you want to do, and each day, take one step towards your dream.

And though at times it may seem too difficult to continue, hold on to your dream.

One morning you will awake to find that you are the person you dreamed of . . . doing what you wanted to do . . . simply because you had the courage to believe in your potential and to hold on to your dream.
