Here’s a great rule to adopt in your own life.
A quote from Theodore Roosevelt:
“Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell ’em, ‘Certainly I can!’ Then get busy and find out how to do it.”
The heart of this message is in showing the confidence necessary to accomplish something difficult. Whether or not you believe in your ability to carry it out, it’s important to realize that, given enough time, anyone can solve almost any problem.
But it begins with confidence.
Never before have we lived in a time when we’re most equipped to gain the knowledge necessary to accomplish almost any task. Having access to Google is one of the key tools of some of the smartest people I know.
Want to learn to change your own oil? There’s hundreds of YouTube videos for that.
Want to learn a new language?
Want to learn to code?
Next time you’re faced with a difficult task and the question of whether or not you can do it, there’s a simple answer.
Certainly I can.
