What is your ‘I Can’t?’ Stop Making Excuses

What Is Your “I Can’t”?

  • I can’t get in shape because I just don’t have time to exercise.
  • I am miserable in my career, but I can’t develop a new line of work because the economy is so bad.
  • I would love to start my own business but I can’t because I don’t know what I would do or have any idea where to start.
  • I can’t make any money and I am spinning my wheels?
  • My relationship is so, so. I can’t seem to make it any better so I am pretty much stuck.
  • I can’t because I don’t have enough money.
  • I can’t learn to dance because I have two left feet.
  • I can’t, I can’t, I can’t!

I have a challenge for you.

Pay attention to your language throughout the day and count how many I Can’ts fall out of your mouth from morning to night. These two words are the wall between you and your passion, you and your joy,  you and all of the abundance that awaits you. When you stop making excuses in your life and knock down the barriers between you and all the good stuff, your entire reality will begin to change. Instead, say, “Yes I Can.” This short statement alone is very powerful. Just by uttering these three words, you will begin to build your accomplishment muscles. Follow up these words with small daily action steps, and before you know it, you will be sailing to the top of your intimidating mountain. This is my internal mantra as my fitness trainer is pushing me to run just one more minute or do one more push-up. I cannot say I am having a blast during the work-out, but I am so happy that I have stepped up to the plate and challenged myself. Are you really ready to make the changes in your life that you have been dreaming about for years? Do you want a more fulfilling career, but have no idea what that could be? Do you want more satisfaction in your life, but have no idea how to make it happen? I would love to hear your comments? Tell me if you are ready to make the changes happen now!
