Absolutely, you can definitely do anything you set your mind to, it takes action, it takes perseverance, it takes facing your fears and most likely getting out of your comfort zone but nothing worth having comes easy in life.
“You can do anything you set your mind to” is a popular phrase, I’m sure the majority of you have heard it multiple times but maybe never gave it too much thought. Growing up, I used to think this phrase was mostly a lie. I used to think it was impossible to achieve everything that “I set my mind to”, I thought to myself, “you couldn’t fly if you put your mind to it so whoever said that must be full of nonsense.” I didn’t fully believe this until I started to look at the intended meaning and took a step back from the literal, that’s when this began to make sense to me. As I grew up, I started growing a new mindset and realized that it is completely true, the problem is that this phrase is often misinterpreted.
Certainly, if you’re looking for an unrealistic goal, you are going to fail from the beginning, however; if we take a realistic goal, for example, you dream of owning a place of your own, you want to buy a house. You feel lost, you don’t even know where to start because you have no money for a down payment and most of your paycheck goes to rent and bills. I totally understand, this can be very frustrating and you may feel trapped, I’m sure the majority of us can relate and have felt like this at some point in our lives, but you CAN’T give up, because this is YOUR dream and If you truly dream of buying that house then you will make it happen somehow. It may take some time, a couple of months, years, but making it happen is what matters, achieving that goal. Now, realistically you will have to make several changes in your life, most likely you will need to cut down on monthly expenses to boost your savings, maybe lowering your cell phone bill , not eating out so much, shopping for unnecessary things, and you will eventually get there because that’s what determined people do. The process may not be easy but it will be worth it and there is no better feeling than that. At the end of the day, it’s all up to you, it can be tempting to just throw the towel and give up, but hang on , believe in yourself and you will find the courage to take action on your goals.
“You take a crash, you get back up and next time you succeed and that’s a great feeling.”
Unfortunately, the majority of people are cramped to a life of mediocrity because they don’t make an effort to achieve what their heart desires. They live their whole lives scared to move out of their comfort zone and afraid of taking their life to a new level, not realizing the potential that they have and what they’re capable of. I believe that everything starts from your mind, your beliefs are what dictate how you live your life. Your age doesn’t matter, your past doesn’t either, what you did or did not do, what matters is your consistency and determination for doing what you set your mind to do. I personally integrate this quote to my everyday life because everything that I have really put my heart into I have accomplished. From graduating from University with a bachelor’s and a master’s degree, to running a half-marathon (trying to complete a marathon by next year) and now being an intern at a non-governmental organization after pursuing working opportunities for a WHILE.
Believe in yourself, if you don’t believe in yourself then you won’t be able to achieve what you set your mind to, at the end of the day, I can provide you with all the motivation and research in the world, and tell you that “you can do anything you set your mind to” but it’s completely up to you if you’re going to set your mind to passing that exam, getting that degree, buying that house, getting that position, making that change you’ve been dreaming about for so long and overall, making it happen.
“The only place where your dream becomes IMPOSSIBLE is in your own thinking”.
YOU CAN do anything you set your mind to do. Your mind affects your attitude, behaviour and it takes over your actions and reactions. Your life is guided by your own thoughts.
Determination + Hustle = Success
