But you can.

"If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves." 
- Thomas A. Edison
I think what it comes down to is that little voice inside your head. It will either tell you you can do something, or you absolutely cannot. There is generally no in between. I find most of the time that little voice is putting ourselves down, telling us we're not good enough, we will fail, no use in trying or believing. 

Enough is enough. 

We are capable of so much, we each possess so much power to achieve greater things, be whatever we want to be, change the world. Do not listen to that little voice in your head, doubting you. It wants to hold you back, challenge you and you need to push past it. If you don't like yourself very is going to seem a whole lot longer than you like. We need to our thoughts, get a different handle and perspective on ourselves, our life and others and start to believe. Have faith, and make the voices in our heads believe in us, encourage us and help us achieve the level of possibilty that we each possess.

If we believe we can grow, learn, achieve, love...our worlds would be limitless. The idea that we are powerful and capable, scares us. Frightens us that our worlds possess so much possibility that we think that there is a chance we might fail. Stop, re-train, re-charge.. you can.
“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” 
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
