MOVE AHEAD Why let one word stop you from achieving ? USHA JESUDASAN
There is very little in life that we can’t do, once we put our minds to it. If you want to, you can become an airline pilot; a poet, or a musician in a rock band. But you must really want to do this. There may be stumbling blocks, but the choice is yours. Most of us have become accustomed to the safe, predictable and boring choices our family and friends guide us into. Do medicine like dad; engineering like everyone else; get into the IT sector…
If someone says, “Let’s build a boat, sail around our coastline and write about our experiences,” most people will say, that it just ‘can’t’ be done. Have you ever built a boat before? Can you swim? What will you write about? Who will publish it? Who will read it?… and so on. The idea is shot down by the word ‘CAN’T’. It is interesting to note that some of whom we consider unusual and remarkable are the ones who became successful by doing what everyone else thought “couldn’t be done.” Dancer Sudha Chandran wanted to be an international dancer with her artificial leg; Mary Verghese was a paraplegic doctor who later became an excellent surgeon. Sir Edmund climbed Mount Everest. They all proved that what everyone thought couldn’t be done, actually could.
It took hard work, failure, practice, and more hard work…but it could be done.When it comes to making choices in life, ‘can’t’ is a provocative word which gives some people the energy, and push they need to go out and do it. Think of the many things you would like to do but don’t? What holds you back from doing them? Is it the word ‘CAN’T'? If it is, take a deep breath, and imagine yourself actually doing it, and go for it. Make your ‘can’t’ a ‘can’.
