I have to

Like most kids, I learned the little engine that could story: "I think I can, I think I can".

I'm here to tell you that's not enough.  It's nice to have positive affirmations.  Thinking is believing and having a belief is nice.  I would like to suggest there is thinking and just doing!

Earlier this month I had a couple small children to think about, work had a bunch of deliverables and school work piled up.  Frequently I found myself myself asking how I could get all the things done and give the amount of attention my loved ones deserve.  There was no 'think I can' it became 'I have to.'

I have to rings in my head when I look up a mountain I wish to run up.  Can I do it?  I have to!

I believe this fine gent said it best:

<<When I kill that guy, you got 30 feet to get to that guard.

Can you do it?

**I have to.>>
