Isn’t it always the case? There are always 100 reasons not to make a difference. They run through your head when you consider doing something big and as soon as you mention the idea to your friends and family they will give you whatever is missing from the 100 as negative comments on your Facebook status.
I don’t know how to do this.
I don’t have the right education.
I’ve never been out of the country.
We’re in a recession. No one will donate to a good cause.
…and the biggest lie of all…
Someone else will do this if I don’t.
Victory goes to those who do and those who look down at all the potential problems usually don’t make it to the doing stage. Don’t let the 100 reasons get in your way. In fact, if you want a fun exercise in overcoming the hurdles, just list the reasons you think of and the ones people throw at you and then cross them off with better reasons to do something. I’ll get you started.
Someone else will do this if I don’t. If I do this, someone else will too (maybe lots of someone elses)
