“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs

I’ve been thinking about this topic quite often lately.

I mean.

What DOES it take to have sheer determination?

To have that ‘thing’ inside you that says:

“I’m going to make this happen, now matter what!”๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ


It’s not an easy thing to do.

Plenty of people start.

Few finish.

That’s why.

Your new catch-phrase needs to be:

I can do it!

See, the struggle is real!

I’ve written about this before.

The Lotus Tree.

How the Lotus Tree grows in a dirty pond.

And it takes years for it to actually grow out of the pond.

But, once it does grow.

It’s absolutely magnificent.

The MOST beautiful plant ever.

Only, for it to get to that place.

It had to go through all the muck first.

It usually takes five years.

Five years of preparation.

All those years.

And nothing is happening.

Only then.

One day.

It blooms.

What a beautiful thing!

Keep saying it:

I can do it!

Well, that’s what it’s like birthing a new venture.

Being the best.

Doing your best.

Making something from nothing.

That is not easy folks!

It takes sheer determination to make it happen๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And I know.

Many are reading this.

Saying, ‘I can’t.’


You absolutely can!

You just have to be the right mindset.

And belief in yourself that you not only CAN do.


Work for it everyday.

Keep saying to yourself:

I can do it!

No risk, no magic.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

That says it all right there folks!

In this game of life, you also need to be willing to take risks.

Because, playing it safe.

Is not going to get you where you want to be.

Like the saying goes: “your comfort zone will kill you”.๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

My latest risk, going on TikTok.

Totally out of my comfort zone.

And yet, it’s going well.

Do I have a million followers?


I do not.

Last time I looked it was 120.

Not bad.

That’s what I’m talking about.

You have to be willing to take risks.

And fall flat on your face.

Because, if that does happen.

And it’s happened to me several times over the years.

Then guess what?

Now you know what NOT to do.

Or, how you can do it better!

Keep telling yourself:

I can do it!

That’s really what it comes down to.

NOT giving up.

And you will want to.

Trust me.

You will have days where you will say to yourself, ‘I’m done’.


On those days.

You have to dig deep.

And remember your WHY๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And keep reminding yourself:

I can do it!

Ancient Chinese Proverb

I cannot stress enough this statement โ˜โ˜โ˜

Fall down.

Make mistakes.

Have a good cry if you want (you will, trust me).

Take a break if you need to.

Then, get back to it.

There’s a great Tom Hank’s quote:

“If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great!”๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

And oh so true.

Because let me tell you.

This sh*it is HARD!


We were never taught that.

Most of us.

That’s why so many give up.

When it gets HARD!


When it gets hard.

Is EXACTLY when we need to keep at it.

Be creative.

Try something new.

And, just keep telling yourself:

I can do it!

How courageous would you say you are?

I have to say.

On a personal note.

I never knew I could be this courageous.



What I’m trying to accomplish.

It takes a lot of work


The way I look at it.

You have to ask yourself.

How bad do you want it?

And if you want it bad enough.

You’ll figure out a way.

I mean.

That’s what all the other successful people did.

They figured out what worked for them to be successful!

I can do it!

Here’s what I’ve figured out for myself.

You literally have to think yourself ‘successful’.

Even before you truly are!

Because, when you start seeing yourself as a success.

You will start thinking as a success.

And what do successful people do?

They get more successful.

You will level up.

Your thinking will shift.

The way you view the world will change.

And the world will view you differently.

Things and people that used to mean so much.

Probably won’t so much anymore.

Not everyone is meant to go to the end with you.

That’s leveling up.

I can do it!

One decision away.

So everyday when you wake up.

Ask yourself?

What can I do today to get me one step closer to where I want to be?

For me?

It’s a no-brainer.

‘I switch into high-gear once I’m up.’

I can do it!

Want success?

Be willing to let go of everything.

And everyone that doesn’t serve you.


Where you are going.


Going to take every ounce of energy you have.

And then some.


You can’t be carrying anything that doesn’t serve you.

Be it people, things or situations.

No bs allowed. NineFrogs Daily:


How far are you willing to go to make it happen!

I can do it!
