I can do it.
I can! I can! I can!
I have always known in my bones that if I wanted something all I had to do was work hard and never give up. I feel that I am one of those lucky ones that have it easy. Have a goal, strive toward it and you will have it.
I know that in the ‘real world’ sometimes hard work and persevering is not enough. No matter how hard one works they will not be able to achieve their dreams. Although I know this I don’t believe in it. All my life, I have gotten what I want as long as I sweat for it. Cry, struggle and almost giving up but in the end the result is always the same I get what I want if I try at it long enough.
I have to remember this and I constantly remind myself that ‘where there is a will there is a way’. I might seem pessimistic at times but I am not like that because I think one cannot achieve it. I am like that because I know how hard the journey will be and it takes a lot of guts to begin with the first step. Every time I think about this I tend to not even want to try. It is only when I close my eyes, take a deep breath and jump do I remember how great the sensation is to throw oneself into something head on.
I do prepare for the worst, I do know that the risk of failure is always higher than chances of succeeding. I know that sometimes I am at a cross road with my morality, ethics and principles, knowing that I will have to forsake something to go forward. With all this I still think that if one works hard enough nothing will stop them.
Nothing will stop me but me.
By the way I love this song.
