Whys Not vs Why Not?

Human nature....every reason in the book why we can’t do things. How many times have you heard yourself saying "This is why not"...... "I can’t do that"......"I’m MUCH too busy" or "I’ll try it one day" but never do. Preacting. Lists upon lists of the whys not. We don’t have any problem with making those lists. They come SO easily. But what if? What if we DID try what we’ve dreamed about for so long. And if others can achieve their lifelong goals, why not you? They’re not better or more deserving than you. Rather they have the attitude, why not try.... succeed.....and stretch farther and succeed at that too, at least in the doing if nothing else.

What if you never attempted something you’ve had in the back of your mind and have been dying to do for years? It sits there, somewhere in the recesses of your mind, festering. That feeling, those thoughts that you’ve never really accomplished much of anything isn’t true, but, because you haven’t attempted that which is close to your heart, those feelings persist. But why not try? What’s the worst that can happen? At least you’ll know, and will be all the smarter for trying. It might not be as incredible as you made it up to be, or, it might be the start of something extraordinary.

So why not give it a try. Here’s to your success in doing, in taking that first step.
