Do Not Let What You Cannot Do Interfere With What You Can Do

Do not limit yourself. You can do lots of things to change yourself if you focus on what you can do well. If you focus on what you are not good at, you will not do well. In the words of John Wooden, “Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.” If you try to do what you are not good at, it is going to cost you your happiness. In order to avoid that, you must focus on where you can do well.

You cannot do well at something you don’t like. If you want to develop yourself, you must focus on doing what you love. If you do what you love, you will love what you do. And if you don’t love what you do, you will not enjoy it. It is better to do what you can do than to do what you are not good at. Life is short. Don’t waste it on other people’s dreams.
