Do you ever look at people who are jogging down the street, lifting a really heavy weight and think "Wow look at them go they are so fast, so strong, so...insert anything you think you are not. I often see other runners going fast and I think "I'm not a runner, I can't go fast" I see people who are fit and skinny and think "why can't I be like that" The truth is we can all be what we want to be if we just change our thinking. No I don't run fast this is true, but I run and it is just as challenging to me as it is to them regardless of the pace. Am I fit and skinny when I look in the mirror no I don't think so, but the truth is I am fit I workout and while I'm no fitness cover model I can push and challenge my body to do all kinds of fitness activities, skinny no that is not me nor do I want it to be, because skinny isn't all it's cracked up to be, I wouldn't trade being as strong as an ox for a movie star body because my strength is what helps me do my job and makes me useful at helping friends move, working on houses, and doing my career. To answer the question in the title If you can, why can't I, its because my thinking holds me back from thinking I am something, my newest challenge to myself is to continually think I can and let the others in the world wonder why they can't!
