Can’t or Won’t (Achieve Your Potential)?

How many times do you hear someone say they can't do something?

The problem with thinking like this is that you almost guarantee you won't.

Can't is defeatist. There is a finality and despair to it… a sense of giving up on yourself or a cop out.

If you say you can't do something others will lower their expectations regarding you and you can continue to safely coast through life.

But have your really tried? Do you really mean you won't do something?

But you have a choice.

You can choose a goal. You can take steps towards achieving your goal. You can change your attitude to can and will.

You can find others who can and learn from them. You can celebrate your small victories along the way.

Remember, the journey to your goal is often more important than actually achieving it. This is where you will grow and learn the most.

You can achieve your potential.
