Is it Possible?

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“I Can’t” is dis-empowering.  I lived in “I Can’t” for a very long time.  It was not until I began to live in “I Can” that my life began to change.  But it took disgust for me!  I had to look myself in the mirror and admit that the way I was living was not that way I wanted to live anymore.  I was disgusted with myself!  I was sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I have had it, I am mad as hell and I am not gonna take it anymore!  What is “IT”?  Very simple alcoholism, addiction, being broke, POOR, not keeping a job, relationship ruin, simply not being happy, joyous or free.  I was a slave to addiction.

I remember when I began to attend college, I never one time in my life believed that I was smart enough to attend college.  College was not an option for me.  I remember one day bumping in to Billy Warry the quarterback of my high school football team.  We were talking a bit and I mentioned that I was home from college.  He looked at me and said, what?  You are in college?  He could not believe it, he was a carpenter and did not attend college, he was smart and me?  Well, not cut out for college.  Monday I will be starting a doctoral program.  Possible?  Probable!

The question is not “Can I”?  The question is “Will I”?  Will I look myself in the mirror and say I am done living like this?  I am mad as hell and I will not accept this any longer!  Disgust is a negative emotion, but today it is my friend!

Go, Go, Go…
