Never get what those feel good positive books says along those line “You have to tell yourself you can do this. Tell yourself every morning.” Stuff like that.
Now, really. Sorry to be that guy, but if you have to tell yourself that, you probably can’t do it. Whatever it is.
Courage is how you are being able to move forward in total darkness with your heart crippling in fear legs shaking to bones.
Your determination is determined by how much you are willing to sacrifice to go further. You know the price and accept it.
It’s more about “it’s okay if I fall or die trying” than setting up for an impossible bullshitting yourself you can do it over and over, then fail and hurt later looking like an idiot.
And seriously, who does that anyway? Who wakes up saying “I can do it!” Every morning? That’s just weird and creepy. Just tell yourself to go get a coffee, sheesh...
