    It is good to read from someone I remember from the last year. Have a good month! I like your Comment Luv box.

    That’s incredible! I am trying to believe in myself these days. I fail at times. But I’m trying. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I completely agree with you. You can do whatever you set your mind to. I think small steps in the right direction are the way to go as well. Something that often helps me when things seem hard is remembering challenges from the past and reminding myself that I made it through those. If I could do it then, I can do it now!

    Very true, Parul. Mind is one powerful thing, and so.us perseverance. Tiny but determined steps and you shall succeed.

  7. The belief that you can will surely take you places. Right now, the only thing that’s bothering me is the fact that I may not be able to give my 100% to the AtoZChallenge. But you know what? After reading this post, I feel that maybe I can. If I stop thinking about all the reasons why I could fail, I will surely make every day of April a success. This is just what I needed to read today, Parul! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very well said Parul. Taking small steps towards our focus makes great difference. I too believe in living one day at a time. Uncertainties in life has taught me this mantra. In the most difficult way and in the most difficult times though but I keep taking baby steps. I would rather reach my destination late than give up half way.

    Thanks for the inspiring post. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers!

  9. That is so true! Progress no matter how slow is progress. But if we give up then it is certain that we can’t proceed. Loved this message ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. What worked for me is persistence. I kept doing the same thing, just slowly getting better as the days and years went by. Finally when an opportunity came, I found I won because I was ‘better prepared’ than anyone else.

  11. Tawnya says:

    I definitely think that we have to have a CAN DO attitude. If you go through life thinking that you are going to fail, then you probably are! It is a balance though for sure! Loved your post!

  12. Shilpa Garg says:

    Yes, it’s self belief! That’s the key to achieve anything! Our way of thinking creates good or bad outcomes, so if we can think it, we CAN do it!

  13. Kaddu says:

    As they say – it’s all in the mind. If you think you can, you can.

  15. Geets says:

    Our mind does wonders! And it is mostly the mental barrier that we have which curbs us from doing so many things we like!

    I like the tip and the positivity in the post, Parul!


  16. Aditi says:

    ‘I AM Possible’ is such a positive mantra. Believing you can, can do wonders! Great reminder, Parul!

  17. upasna says:

    RIght Parul, everything starts in mind. But still 100kms is a lot. I ran for 5 kms and I was drained out. I believe what we should talk about it often, the thing we aim for.

  18. Kalpanaa says:

    One of my favourite quotes. There’s a lot of wisdom there.

  19. Lalita says:

    The Oxfam 100 km walk changed my life too. It was like a crash course in perspectives, priorities and personal development. Thanks for letting me relive those potent emotions through your post.

  20. If you think you can, you can; if you think you can’t, you can’t. It’s all about the mindset. The way we think affects how we feel and behave.

    Very inspiring thought .
    Loved it

  22. Neha says:

    The day we start believing and stop doubting is when we will become a different person! Great thought

  23. Soumya says:

    You can do anything you want to do as long as you “want” to! The mind is a powerful tool and once it is set on something nothing can stop one. But yeah, it is important to set realistic expectations and goals.

    VT walked a 100kms in 48 hours? Let’s talk about this when we meet.

    Yes… I can commit to my Gym! I keep saying this everyday then I back off. Lazy me!

  25. Duncan says:

    The Henry Ford quote sums it up perfectly! We are what we believe

    Absolutely Amazing Alliteration

  26. Sreesha says:

    100km?! Ooooook! I’m not sure if I could do it (oh dear God, does admitting that go against the essence of the post?? Forgive me!)
    The thing is, determination and willpower are both important, but this little thing called self-doubt keeps resurfacing every time I tell myself I can do something. Will work on that!

  27. Thaks true. Its the mind that dictates us, telling us what’s possible and what’s not. But getting our mind to believe mAY seem a Herculean task, but well its not impossible.

  28. Jaishvats says:

    The problem of putting ones mind to something comes when we have a choice of not doing it at all…. Otherwise if we had a necessity for something to get done we would not think about putting our mind to it… We would not have a choice at all… Thats the approach we must take… You walk a few steps today or you trip and fall it does not matter…. You keep going as you don’t have a choice ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Wowza a 100 kms – I broke into a sweat just reading it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes our belief keeps us going and what one thinks is impossible; another completes it with a sense of pride!!
    Mind over matter!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your writing is so positive and encouraging- I love reading your posts Parul – more power to your pen!

  30. It all does start in the mind. Baby steps work for me too, Parul. I don’t get overwhelmed that way.

  31. Rajlakshmi says:

    The kind of self motivation that one athletes have is unbelievable… Yes, to reach higher goals, we need to believe first that we can. I remember reading your 100 km post… That’s quite a feat by V๐Ÿ˜€

    Visiting from A-Z challenge. Appreciate the encouragement – I’m struggling to believe I can do this challenge with all the rest of life going on around me. Your post is timely – I can do it if I believe I can! Thanks for that!

  34. That’s a lovely lesson, actually. We can do anything we put our minds to, provided we work hard of course. I saw this lovely TED talk on the importance of grit and why it is necessary that we work hard to achieve something and that’s the true secret of success.Will see if I can find the link.
