It is my personal opinion that there are two words that are the driving force behind you personally achieving your ultimate outcome and your WHY in life. These two words are the most powerful words that you can and will ever speak to yourself about any situation – “CAN” and “CAN’T” As I’m sure I’ve before, “CAN” is a word of power; whereas, “CAN’T” is a word of retreat.
You have the power to decide if you wish to ACHIEVE or RETREAT, because when you speak victory words such as “I CAN”, you will attain whatever you set out to do regardless of what others are saying to you. There are many famous entrepreneurs in the world such as Ray Kroc, Fred Astaire, Walt Disney and Dick Clark. I can attest to the fact that if you spoke with each of them individually, they would tell you that in the beginning of their journey the majority of people told them “You CAN’T do that!” Fortunately, they disregarded these statements and listened to their inner voice, who said, “Oh yes I CAN!”
The key in life is to realize the most important person who speaks to you every day is you on the inside! You need to review your WHY in life and see if you are on track toward achieving your WHY, or are on a detour because someone told you, “You CAN’T do that, so stop dreaming and just forget about it!” You need to speak to your inner person and say to yourself, “Today I will take another productive stride!”
Each morning, I visualize myself winning. My personal outcome for each day is to build a community of people who we can inspire and motivate all of us to make the world a better place in which to live. I have to admit if it was not for my inner person saying, “You CAN do it! YOU CAN do it!” I may not be in the position of success that I am today. Some days it is still difficult, but guess what? We ARE doing it!
In summary, you need to ask yourself a very honest question, “Am I listening to my victory words from the inside or am letting the outer defeat (loser) words control my outcome in life?”.
