Stop Interrupting Yourself

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it

-Chinese Proverb



I never wake up early.


There was no way I was going to voluntarily wake up early to run.


Even if I got out of bed, I had to drive 20 minutes in the dark and snow.  I won't do it.


I am supposed to run SEVEN MILES.  That is FORTY-NINE TIMES around the YMCA track.  


(I don't run alone in the dark outside.  It's always dark right now.  Why bother?)


I will get bored, lose count, or I will slow down and stop.  I can't do 49 times around the same track.


I won't.


I might.


I'll try.  (Reluctantly.)



I'll believe.



I'll move.






Do not tell anyone that something can’t be done. 

Including Yourself.
