These are the words on my favorite T-Shirt.  These are three words that I work hard to use in a positive way,  and it is not easy.  So the T-Shirt becomes a great reminder that we are only limited by what we think we can do, it also starts a lot of great conversations at the gym.

So let me ask you how many times do you find yourself saying…

  • I would do that but I don’t have ______
  • I should find the time for ___________
  • If I only had more ________ I could do_________

If we are not careful we can create a long list of would, should, could’s.

Now before you think I am Pollyannaish let me recognize that life is filled with limits.  I for one realize that I am not built to run a marathon.  As true of a limit as this is I have learned to enjoy high endurance distance challenges.  At the age of 40 I learned to backpack and gained enough endurance to complete a 50 mile back packing trip.  Not really impressive for top athletes but a big accomplishment for me.  It took controlling my thinking…and thinking “I would like to know how”, “I should carve out an hour a day to train”, and “I could do it since I had the interest and enthusiasm to learn”.  Life has limits but ask yourself…

  • What would I like to do?  Make a list and do it!
  • What can I accomplish?  Get out of your comfort zone a bit, you can do more!
  • What should I be focused on?  There are always distractions but focus on your passion.

“Don’t Should on Yourself!”  We all have a great life we should do more with it!
