(If you missed Part I of this series, you may wish to go back and read it. This passage builds off a central theme of that first piece.)
Sometimes when we hear the exploits or passions of people or groups that are highly successful we think, “That’s great, but that can’t be me.” We often tend to downplay our own impact on others. We doubt our abilities to make a positive difference.
And, bluntly, sometimes that is easier. It is much easier to say, “I can’t” than to go out and try to change the world, or if not the world, something in your own life. Often times, we look at the roadblocks, real or perceived, that will prevent us from working towards a worthy goal.
