Is your vocabulary filled with “can’ts?” Do you come up with one reason (aka excuse) after another of why you can’t live the way you want to? Are you discouraged because you believe you can’t have what you want?
What if your “can’ts” are just a typo? What if you really can?
Can’ts exist because you’ve erroneously decided that you can’t do or have something… and in doing so you’ve squashed your own hopes and dreams. No one else does that for you… you do it to you. The cool thing is that you CAN do the exact opposite and be just as successful at doing as you have been at “can’ting”… if you want to.
For years I told myself I’d never be as successful as my boss, my best friend or even my sister. The funny thing was I didn’t really want to be what they were. I didn’t want to be a corporate employee. I didn’t want to be a nomad and I sure didn’t want to be miserable. Somehow though I saw myself as less than… but it wasn’t until I realized I didn’t want to be them that I realized I could be the person I wanted to be.
What about you? What if you dropped the “t” and decided you can:
- Be happy
- Take a risk just to see how it works out
- Decide every morning to do the best you can do
- Bless the people around you
- Be grateful for what you do have
And if you do all of those things you’ll also realize that you can take the steps necessary to live your dream, to love without conditions and be a blessing to the world.
You CAN do or be whatever you decide you CAN do!
