Eliminate "can't" from your vocabulary
Can't - that little word that trots along with us, in our minds, in our speech, and in the plans we make. It can become a habit so engrained that it becomes part of our vocabulary without us even realizing it.
Today, I want to challenge you to eliminate "can't" from your vocabulary. Make the switch from can't to can. You may ask why?
Because when we say I can't, everything else in the sentence is false, Absurd and impractical. Claiming you can't do something is absurd and impractical. Saying you can't do something you wished you can do is impossible is not just ridiculous it's downright false.
As a friend of mine shared with me recently, whether you can't or you won't is a choice. Whether you see obstacles or roadblocks, or you see challenges to be overcome. Whether you call yourself creative or think yourself capable, the mindset of your life is yours for the making. And yours for the living.
We all have something that stopped us from doing something in our life, most of the time we call it can't.
Everytime you say or have said "I can't do it" , there was an action you took or a decision that was made against doing what it was that you've thought you can't do.
You aren't born with a desire to be lazy or not to move forward. But what made people give up is the unfortunate moments they felt they were alone and that they should be the only one fighting their battles.
The thing is, life is a battle, everyone has different battles, some harder than others. What we need to do is find the people that have the same battle, just like you and fight with them instead of fighting alone.
Know that one thing that you think is stopping you? It's just an excuse.
And what do we need when we have a battle in front of us? It's a fact! We need facts to encourage us and make us believe that we are worth it, that we can do it and that if someone else has done it, so can we!
The good news is that you can change the "can't" to "can" today by;
Step 1: Change your routine and your actions.
Step 2: Write down your goals and how you plan to achieve them and visualize yourself achieving your goals.
Step 3: Reward yourself when you stick to your routine and attain your goals.
Step 4: Share your plans with friends and family to keep yourself accountable.
Step 5: Take every negative thought or feeling and turn it into a positive one.
Step 6: Remember that there are no shortcuts or quick fixes, but with hard work and faith in yourself you will see amazing results!
The best outcomes come from the most basic beginnings, so don't be afraid to take a big first step. There's too much at stake not to give it everything you've got.
Consider this, if you have the desire, motivation and passion to work for something, then go ahead and do so! Don't let anyone hold you down or tell you that you can’t do it because life is too short for feeling like you've already failed at something before you even started on it.
Letting go of can't is really about taking control of our mindset. Instead of telling ourselves we can't do something, revising our attitude to tell ourselves we can.
This is easier said than done, but here are a few examples on how we might apply this principle in our daily lives:
★I'm going to lose weight: I will go out for a walk and exercise every day because I can lose weight!
★I can get out of debt: I'm going to review my budget every month and reduce my debt: I will have less debt because I'm the one who manages the budget.
★I can make new friends: When an opportunity arises to meet new people, I will take it because of my ability to make new friends.
★I can get better at my job: I won't let my joblessness weigh me down. I will go out and look for a job and get myself up.
If you are passing through any of those, say it to yourself today that you can.
We all can't do a lot of things initially, but eventually we can. The universe has infinite possibilities and you have the ability to go after any one of them.
When we tell ourselves we can't do something, it stops us from working towards something worthwhile and meaningful. Switch the can't to can in your own life and see what happens.
Eliminate "can't" from your vocabulary.
