Saying I can't will keep you bound, but saying I won't will give you choice.
Too often I hear someone say "I can't do that!" and when I retaliate with "yes you can, you just won't." They usually say "yeah, I guess your right but..."
The words I can't are statements that take away your choice or freedom to do something. It fools you into believing it just is what it is. It brings you to believe it's completely out of your reach or out of your control.
Every time I hear the words I can't, I challenge it with, you can't or you won't. I won't says "I can do it, but I just don't want to. I can do it, but I'm not willing to do what is required to have it. I can do it, I just didn't realize it was possible for me"
The I won't statement helps you to inherit a characteristic of the successful - taking full responsibility and ownership for one's choices.
From this day forward, start the process of setting yourself free from the I can't statements by challenging them - asking yourself whether it's really I can't or simply I won't and watch as a whole new world opens up to your view.
99.9% of the time, you can do it! You simply don't have the belief in yourself to envision it happening. You must challenge your negative beliefs by asking yourself self-freeing questions.
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Is it really that I can't or is it that I won't do it for one reason or another?
- What if I can do this, am I willing to do whatever it takes?
- What's my goal and where do I start the process of accomplishing it?
- Do I know someone or know of someone that has accomplished it before?
- Could I simply ask for help from someone who has done it?
- Am I not good enough?
- Do I not have the skills?
- What's missing that, if acquired, would allow me to accomplish this?
These questions will help you to challenge your thinking and the I can't statements in your life. If I were you, I would get this list printed off in a wallet sized, laminated format so you can carry it around with you to use when you need it.
