Motivational Quote - A great pleasure in life is doing something that other people say you cannot do.

SparkPeople's Comments

There will always be people who will try to sabotage your weight-loss efforts. They might tell you you won't be able to do it, or that it's not worth it. But don't let their harsh words get you down; use them to motivate you to be better. The satisfaction you'll achieve when you prove those people wrong will leave you feeling on top of the world!

After telling ourself we can not do it, others are the greater roadblock.

This is very true. The people who do not believe in me are the reasons I will do what I am after!

This reminds me of past relationships (ex-husband) that used to do that. What a way to turn it around to better you! Who says we can't!

This is so me. I have a history of saying " watch me" when someone say's " you can't". I went for my motorcycle license, my pistol permit and renovated a bedroom when my husband said I couldn't. Well he has learned to be very wise with his words now. hehehe.

I've kind of based my life on proving people wrong about me. Nothing energizes me more or fuels my passion more than doing exactly what others have told me I couldn't possibly do either because I wasn't smart enough, young enough, strong enough, industrious enough, committed enough or had enough money or knew the right people. The quality I like about myself the most is that I am stubborn and tenacious and I never give up once I decide I really want something. The only person who can prevent me from reaching my goals is myself.

Yes, I remember in the '80's when I met with someone from HR to discuss my getting my MBA. Since I lived in a fairly large metropolitan area, there were a few colleges/universities to choose from. The male HR manager indicated that I probably wouldn't do well at a specific university because it was a very-math oriented program, and females weren't usually good at math (yes, he actually said that), Well, needless to say I went to that university and received my MBA with a 3.6 (out of 4.0) GPA. I made sure I framed my diploma and hung it at a prominent point in my office.
