“Not knowing you can’t do something, is sometimes all it takes to do it.” ~ Ally Carter

It’s funny to think that you may accomplish things without even knowing that you couldn’t do it. It’s kind of like the placebo effect, but in reverse. If someone would have told you you couldn’t do it, maybe you wouldn’t have been able to do it. Think of all of the things you think you can’t do, and question why you think you can’t do them. Can you not do them because you know you can’t, or because you tried them and were not successful? It may be time to try things you once thought you couldn’t do.

It’s a two-edged sword that you want to be on the right side of.
