Preparing for a New Challenge

If you are about to embark on a new challenge that you worry you may not be able to accomplish, one way to motivate yourself into tackling it is to think of past goals that you've successfully achieved. Think of rather big milestones that you've reached such as finishing university, having a child, buying a house. If you were able to do those things which require considerable commitment why can't you face the next milestone ahead? Once you have listed some past accomplishments, try to think about how you felt before you actually started to work towards your goal. Were you nervous? Apprehensive? Afraid you could fail? Are they similar feelings to what you have now faced with a new challenge? If so, you've already proved to yourself that despite past apprehensions or doubt you were able to accomplish the tasks at hand so what is stopping you from doing it again.

What you can and can't do is all in your head.
