If you think it’s at all possible for you to do it yourself, I encourage you to try. Too many of us go far too long between those times when we feel victorious. You know, the sense of pride in having surprised ourselves by stretching and accomplishing something that seemed, at best, on the edge of our potential.
It may seem inconsequential, in the big scheme of things, for you to replace a door or build a wall. But it is not. Build that wall, then stand back and look at it when it’s done, and you’ve sweated, and you’ve cussed, and you’ve made four trips to the store. Then look at exactly how that makes you feel. You’ll see that you’ve gained more than a wall.
The sense of accomplishment you gain from doing that project yourself will propel you into the week ahead feeling victorious.
That can change everything.
