Saying “I Can’t” do something is like giving all your personal power away and admitting you have none.
Sounds a bit harsh right? I know! I get so worked up over this topic and I’m not going to tread lightly around it. Enough is enough.
I’ve been there too…I’ve said it to myself many of times.
I remember telling my best friend in high school that I can’t go to college. He was like “yes you can”. You have to at least try. So I decided to take his advice and try to go. I applied for financial aid, I filled out the long tedious applications, I convinced my mom I would get a job and pay for my books and tuition, I decided to put some power in my own hands. Guess what? I went to college! My life would never be the same if I hadn’t tried and just gave my power away by saying “I can’t”.
What is happening in your life right now that you want to change, but you feel like you can’t?
Do you want to start working out but you can’t?
Do you want to eat healthier but you can’t?
Do you want to have more energy but you can’t?
Do you want to feel happier but you can’t?
Do you want a promotion but you can’t get it?
Do you want a different job but you can’t leave the current one?
Do you want a new car but you can’t afford it?
Do you wish you had love but you can’t find it?
What is it that you can’t do right now?
I don’t believe there is anything we can’t do. Why do I say this? I have experienced the journey in my own life, I have watched incredible people do unspeakable things on TV and in books, I have witnessed friends and family overcome the greatest obstacles. There is too much evidence in the world that PROVES we can do anything we want if we have the will and personal power to take action.
I know it’s not easy. I claim that anything is possible but I don’t claim that everyone currently possesses the strength to get after his or her goals and dreams. It takes practice, commitment, discipline, and much more to turn “I can’t” into “I Can”.
But stop saying I can’t! Just admit that you won’t. I can accept that answer. At least then we are being honest with ourselves and the universe, right?
We are all born with incredible personal power and potential. It’s time to harness that power and own it! If you aren’t willing to say “I won’t” then say “I will”.
I CAN and I WILL! What will you flip from “I can’t” to “I can” in your life?
