It was Henry Ford who once said: “if you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right”.
If you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right. When I was teaching elementary school many, many years ago I began to notice that it was the child’s ‘I can’ do attitude that was way more important than the child’s IQ.
What I came to believe as I worked with adults over the next thirty years is that this is true for every one of us. It’s a sense of ‘I can’ that empowers us to do things that help us expand into the aliveness that is calling every single one of us.
If you and I are breathing, life itself is calling to us to expand, to grow, to become, to give, to live fully in this day. If I think I can or if I think I can’t, I am right. So tune into whenever you start thinking ‘I can’t’ or ‘this is too big of a problem.’
If I think I can or I think I can’t, I get to be right. So we just say ‘up until now I haven’t been able to, but starting now I am going to look for ways ‘I can’.
I know you can…
