You are more capable you think.
I had this “a-ha” moment at the gym yesterday. Doing one of those
Pilates classes and the teacher wanted us to do this move that was a
handstand. I thought there’s no way I could that, maybe if I was 9
years old. She said, “just look forward and your body will follow
you.” So I tried, and it worked! For about 5 seconds.
I didn’t stand on my hands for long, but I realized I did something I
never thought I could, just because I tried. Because I had the guts
to look forward.
I read this today and it gave my handstand a deeper meaning:
“Sometimes you underestimate yourself and what you are capable of
accomplishing. Just look forward, make a conscious decision to stop
worrying and start believing in yourself, and the power of God within
you. Say yes to life and try new things.” –(www.dailyword.com)
Rise, let us be on our way.—John 14:31
Here's a great example of a person doing that:
Ernestine Shepherd did the thing that most women fear, bathing suit
shopping. She took reinforcement, her sister was there too.
They didn’t like what they saw, so they banned together and resolved
to start exercising.
Well, shortly after that monumental shopping trip, her sister died,
and Ernestine got to work at the gym.
She is now 75 years old, and is the world’s oldest competitive female
Oh and by the way that infamous bathing shopping trip when she
started working out, she was 57.
