Wise Words: Shock Yourself

by Britni Danielle

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” – Thomas Edison

Have you ever thought you couldn’t do something, but you tried it anyway? After you completed the task, you probably looked back and said, “Damn…I did it!”

In that moment you felt accomplished, powerful, and able to take on the world. But somewhere along the line we lose that feeling, we begin having doubts and begin to question whether or not we’re smart enough, powerful enough, or strong enough. You are.

Believe in yourself–without question–and you will be amazed at what you will accomplish.

Happy Thursday!
