Why Not?

People will give you thousands of reasons why you can’t.  The world will point out where you lack, your failures, and do its best to keep you distracted.  You will have your own, personal, self-doubt, fear, and anxieties.  This life is a constant, relentless, beautiful struggle.  But at the end of the day, if there are goals you want to accomplish, if you have dreams you want to pursue, you have to look at yourself in the mirror, and ask, “Why Not?”  There will always be negativity.  People will always make sure you know why you can’t, remind you of the others who have tried, but failed.  Point out the odds and obstacles that stand in your way.  The world will constantly offer you an alternate path, always the well-traveled path, the easiest path.  The world will offer you plenty of distraction.  Opportunities for you to lose focus, lose sight of the goal, the dreams.  You have to rise above.  You have to block out the noise, block out the distractions, you have to constantly keep in the forefront of your consciousness, “Why Not?”  It doesn’t matter what people say.  It doesn’t matter what the world may offer you.  It doesn’t matter what your self-doubt, anxiety, and fear may say.  You, each day, get to choose how you will live.  What steps you will take to pursue and eventually accomplish your goals and dreams.  You get to choose who you will be, who you will become.  You write your own story.  No one, nothing, can write the story for you, your story.  Don’t become overwhelmed.  Overwhelmed with all the noise.  The grandness of what you want to accomplish.  Simply, take each day, one step at a time, one task at a time, looking not too far behind, not too far ahead, but tirelessly focusing on, “Why Not?”why not
