Some People Say It Cannot Be Done, But Just Do It!

Have you ever noticed that whenever someone is successful all those around them are ready to declare that success was easy? But those same people before you begin are the very naysayers who say, “give up now; it’s too hard, no one has ever done it before.” forecast all of the troubles and obstacles which will block the way to your goal.  They’ve always given up before they even tried. Now, is your time to show them that what looks like impossible can be done. First, you have to start. Second, you move forward, one step at a time. Third, take rest as needed, Four, don’t be afraid to reassess and be flexible.

Let me leave you today with some words of encouragement:

It Couldn’t Be Done

By Edgar A. Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,

But he with a chuckle replied

That ‘maybe it couldn’t,’ but he would be one

Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin

On his face. If he worried he hid it.

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;

At least no one ever has done it”;

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,

And the first thing we knew he’d begun it,

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,

Without any doubting or quiddit,

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn’t be done and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,

There are thousands to prophesy failure;

There are thousands to point out to you one by one,

The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,

Just take off your coat and go to it;

Just start to sing as you tackle the thing

That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.

  • I LOVE this! Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂 It isn’t always a bad idea to listen to advice or concerns from those around us, but we must always consider the source and then listen even more carefully to that small still voice inside of us that will never lead us astray.
