If You Think You Can’t, Think Again

If You Think You Can’t, Think Again | Righteous Cacao
I would love to share my story of how I came to playing musical instruments at 60 years of age!!! I would love to hear your stories of things you went after and achieved against all odds and never thought you could achieve because people told you that it wasn’t possible. Send me an email or write me on Facebook. LinkedIn, Instagram or wherever @Righteously Raw Chocolate or info@earthsourceorganics.com. I spent 57 years of my life thinking I was tone deaf!!! I was told over and over that I was not “musically inclined”, could not carry a tune, etc. etc. I became exactly that story of who I thought I was defined by those that didn’t believe in me. I became the biggest non- believer of me. Until one day I broke away from a long relationship and felt so free that I went out and bought a guitar just to see if I could play it. That was three years ago this month. I not only play acoustic and electric guitar now but also drums, a little bass, a little ukelele and I am learning Music Theory too. I play with jam bands and call myself a musician now!!! Moral of this writing is never take on someone else’s story about who they think you are!!!! Never believe you can’t do something because someone else said you can’t. I have no business degree and was told ten years ago I didn’t have what it takes to start a business. Well you know the outcome of that story(www.righteouslyrawchocolate.com). I started my company with a huge vision that I would build a food empire and I was told it was not possible because I lacked business education. For so many years I stifled myself in business because I became what others told me was not possible. I am back to believing that I will build my food empire even bigger than where it is today. I am a Visionary who has a dream for the future of food. Never again will I ever allow the words “I can’t” enter into my daily thoughts. Today I want to start a self-love movement to show the world IF YOU THINK YOU CAN’T, THINK AGAIN! I don’t want any of you to spend another day of your life believing that you can’t do something because someone else didn’t believe in you and told you it was not possible. My favorite song is sung by Nina Simone called Feeling Good. I play it every morning. Every day that I wake up is so exciting because I wonder what else can I achieve in this lifetime that I thought I couldn’t???? Make today and tomorrow a YES I CAN awesome day! Thanks for reading. Blessings, Audrey Darrow (Owner of Righteously Raw Chocolate).

    I love your story Audrey! You’re so right that our only limitations are the ones we believe to be true. I began my singing career at the age of 60! I had never had any musical training and had never sung or performed in front of an audience or a single person for that matter. Within just a few years of my decision to get out there and sing I had my own band and was performing regularly. Following my inspiration to do something I had always wanted to do but hadn’t ever perused because of self doubt has brought a tremendous amount of joy and fulfillment into my life. Your message and your story are the inspiration the world is desperately in need of right now!! Wishing you much joy and success, Dhyana
