Try before declaring anything

Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy when it comes to taking on challenges to foster growth: 

You might tell yourself that you’re not ready. 

You might tell yourself that you’re not capable. 

You might tell yourself that now isn’t a good time. 

You might consider the challenge in front of you a foregone conclusion & tell yourself that it’s simply impossible

The worst part? The more you say these things, the easier they are to believe. 

But here’s the truth: 

Whatever project, responsibility, or task that is intimidates you…

Maybe you can do it. 

Maybe you can’t. 

But you the only way to be sure is to try in earnest. 

Before you resign yourself to not being ready, try

Before you resign yourself to not being capable, try

Before having the audacity to declare that something is impossible, try

Resolve to try before declaring anything.

It’s that simple and that hard.

You will find that following this principle will help you get out from under the self limiting beliefs that perhaps you never realized you had. 

simplest things are the hardest to pull off.. probably because we don't believe it can be that simple

Just read this and thought you might like:

JO : I heard this quote, from the guy who owns Harry’s Bar in Venice, he said, “Simplicity is beautiful when it is full of many small details.”

JZ : Exactly. Not minimalism, simplicity. It’s shocking, too, when you encounter something that’s truly so simple. For me it’s like tonkatsu! That’s truly the spice of life for me—whenever I find something so simple that is so amazing, I usually try to cling on to it, to bring it into my world.

JO : I like that idea, I think that’s what we’re talking about. It’s simple, but there’s so much to its simplicity. That relates back to what we were talking about, the process of developing a recipe, paring back everything that’s not essential. So it ends up being very simple. Simple but full of attention to detail. That's it.
