Julie’s Blog: “I could never do that!”

If you’re thinking, “I could never do that!”…about anything in your life…re-think your position. I say, “I could never do that!” about things like climbing Mt. Everest, enjoying a glass of top-shelf whiskey, and…ice fishing.

Do I really believe I could never do those things?


It’s just that I don’t want to.

Have caution when you talk yourself out of experiences in the name of ability, courage, character, skill, creativity, etc. I’m sure I could climb Everest…if I wanted to. I bet I’d learn to appreciate a finely crafted whiskey…if I wanted to. And ice fishing? Yeah, I bet I’d learn to love it if I was hanging out with a loved one and a hot mug of coffee (and several space heaters, and five layers of blankets, and….;)

My point?

It’s okay not to want something outrageous or unreasonable. Just don’t tell yourself you can’t.
