If you can't, you must. If you must, you can

Earlier today, I was having a discussion with my friend about how I was planning to re read some of the books that I had read at a younger age. As we age, we transform due to our experiences. Looking at the stack of my books, I found Anthony Robin’s book Awaken the giant within. A well meaning friend of mine had gifted the book during the days I had less inclination for this genre of books. So I picked up the book and started reading. There was an interesting quote which caught my interest. 

If you can’t, you must. If you must, you can.

How often do we stop pursuing our dreams, interests only because we think we can’t. We prefer to have an easy life with less investment. There is a hidden price tag for success and happiness which is hard work, grit and determination. The price tag becomes apparent when you take the first baby steps. As soon as we realize the cost, it becomes easier to put off the pursuit by saying that it’s something we can’t do. There are many things we do to ensure our basic necessities are met only because it falls into the criteria of ‘must be done’. Most procrastinators have a large list of what they can’t do rather than what they must be doing. My friend has written a nice blog about procrastination and techniques to overcome it.

Consider you are preparing for your exams, you end up managing to reading the whole reference book within a day before the exams which you would have considered as a herculean task months before the exam. It’s only when there is a deadline and certain panic which sets in helped in completing the herculean task. Clearing the exams became a must and hence reading the reference book within a day became a must.

Though the above serves as a simple example, some of pursuits which have a large impact in life have been left behind only because we think we can’t. Transform those pursuits into something that you must do and see them coming into fruition.
