It’s amazing what you can do when you set your mind to it


This week as I continue the series of changing your life, I want you to know you are not to old, it is never to late and that you can and will achieve all that you set your mind to.


I never thought I would leave my ex, how could I support myself, I liked the big lifestyle, I hadn’t worked a full time job in years.

( yes, I was working full time with him but not one that actually gave me a pay check)

I was just starting a new business, I was scared, he made me scared, I never thought I could do this.


I never thought I could do a triathlon, I couldn’t swim for God’s sake? Hello??

I hated running, what made me think I could do this?

Determination, the unstoppable will to say I can, I will, you watch and see, that was it.


You think I’m to stupid, to scared, to weak, to old, to out of shape….fill in the blanks of your inner voice or the voices in your life….


Yes, they don’t believe it, you might not even believe it but when you set your mind to something, oh watch out! Things happen, things you couldn’t even imagine will start happening.


The only thing that is stopping you is …..YOU! ¬†Yes, you! You are your biggest enemy, you tell yourself you can’t do it,

I failed before, they said you can’t…

You have to change your mind set, you have to want it so bad it becomes your mission.


How many times in that pool I looked like a drowning cat, coughing and swallowing water, I couldn’t get the head in the water, arm thing for months, I was a spaz!

I couldn’t run around the block without thinking I was going to have to call 911!


Yet I refused to give up, I was afraid of the ocean, yet I was not going to let that stop me. Nothing was going to stop me. If I came in last, if it took me all day to finish, I was going to do this.


I kept going for months, not quitting, holding on for dear life, but holding on non the less. And guess what I did it, with a broken toe, a stung ass and a torrential downpour with lighting and thunder!

I finished and I even surprised myself by placing 3rd in my age group!


So today my friends, don’t let anything stop you, you can do this, leave that marriage, let go of that horrible relationship, start a new business, do things you never thought you could do…you got this…show them, let them eat their words, shut up that voice in your head for good!


You can and will do it…just hold on, keep the dream, nothing is impossible if you believe!


Be the change you want to see”
