Welcome to today’s Daily Motivation which is a poem by Edgar Guest entitled ‘It Couldn’t Be Done.’   I often turn to poetry when in need of inspiration or motivation and this is a particularly fine example of verse that speaks to the heart and mind, refreshing that will to win.

Read it out loud or to yourself…read it more than once and whenever you need to…Poetry speaks to us so effectively thanks to its precise use of words and rhythm that tap in to that deeper subconscious, bringing about profound changes over time.

It Couldn’t be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
But, he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, as he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one we know has done it”;
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle right in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That cannot be done, and you’ll do it
