When Someone Tells Me "You Can't."

When someone tells me "you can't" or "that's not possible" something inside my core ignites.

I will prove that someone wrong.

I can and I will.
Oh, you don't know what you just did, someone.

You thought you were discouraging me. Instead, you are egging me on.

You thought you were telling me that you knew more than I do.

Well you don't.

Now, you've presented me with a challenge, not a road block.

I can.
I will.
Step aside.

By saying the words " Sorry, you can't accomplish that." What you did was make me 100 percent sure that I will prove you wrong.

I will succeed.
I'm stronger than your words.

In fact, thank you for telling me "you can't." I'm going to take those words, put them in my internal gas tank and rev my engine so loud it will deafen your ears.

I'll win the race.
I will do what I set out to do.

So keep telling me "you can't."
Because I can.
And I will.
Watch me.


  1. I wish I was like that...I do. But I'm easily defeated these days. :(

    Power to you though! You go girl!

  2. Oh I've been there. And I still go there. I just happen to feel like this today. :)

  3. In the immortal words of the internet, "Hater's gonna hate!" Be strong. Carry on.

  4. Yes! Also, when someone tells me I "have to" do something... I want to dig my heels in and refuse.
