Did you say from Bumps to Best?

Sometimes we are going along on life’s road, it is smooth sailing, and then we hit a bump.

That bump may be our testing ground. How we handle it will determine where and how far we go in life.
The first thing some of us do when we hit that bump is start telling ourselves all the reasons we can’t overcome this bump. Have you ever wondered why you start out telling yourself the reasons why you can’t make it?
Some of those reasons we use we heard in childhood and some we allowed to be dumped on us in adulthood and some we have spoon-fed ourselves.

We give ourselves mental beatings. It’s a wonder some of us can still walk. We spend our time convincing ourselves why we can’t do something when we should spend our time telling ourselves why we can do it.
Instead of developing fear, let’s concentrate on developing courage. It’s our life, let’s make the best of it.
