“There isn’t a person anywhere who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks he can.” ~ Henry Ford
If you lived for 1000 years, you still would not know your limits. Each day and year you live, you learn more about yourself and what’s possible. Yet, somehow the word “can’t” seems to work its way into your vocabulary.
What’s the cure for the pontificators of “I can’t”? If youask yourself whom you would like to be known as, you start to remove some of the clouds of “I can’t”. Next, look at the network of people you know. Do they support who you want to be? Or do they discourage you from being more than you are? Often times, the negative voices in your head are from the Nay Sayers who have discouraged you.
When you want more from life than what you have, it is imperative that you begin to develop friendships with those who are on a path that is similar to what you desire to accomplish. Some of those people may have accomplished what you dream to do. Others are just beginning to think about it. The stage they are at is irrelevant. It is more important that you start to have empowering conversations with them.
Next, it’s critical that you start to take actions that support your goal. While many believe it is a matter of timing, the right time is always now. Those first steps may stretch you out of your comfort zone. However, if you take one step each day, you will have begun the journey to a breakthrough.
As you take your steps and engage your new friends in conversations, keep the vision of your objective in your mind. Approach it as though it has already happened. And from time to time, set aside moments to contemplate. If you look carefully at your life, you will see that your entire life has prepared you to be on the very path you desire most.
