The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

Chinese Proverb

Old wisdom for a modern time.

How many people have you run into that says that it cannot be done? Most likely a lot. In our life we will run into a lot of people who are doubters. These people are only relaying the fact that they believe they cannot do it. It’s their own insecurities about their lack of self confidence in themselves.

In no way does this reflect the reality that someone else can and will do it. Having the right mental attitude and the abilities to obtain the resources that will allow you to achieve it are the keys. You possess these then you can do whatever you set out to do.

Never allow the doubters to steer you away from what you know you can accomplish.

Teachers open the door;

you enter by yourself…

A very profound statement that I think most people read the words but they don’t truly understand what they mean.

You see, a teacher can give you a lesson but it is up to you to truly understand what the lesson really means. Just not the obvious.

A teacher can give you something to practice but if you don’t practice the way it is suppose to be done……

A teacher is but a stepping stone on your path through life but if you don’t want to step on that stone…….

A teacher is not responsible for your failures if you don’t choose to follow the lessons.

Not taking full advantage of a lesson is like not entering the door at all.

A teacher may open or close the door depending on the readiness.
