Turn I can't into I Can!

Turning I Can’t Into I Can

The glass is half full, the glass is half emptyHow many times have you told yourself, I’ll get to it tomorrow? Tomorrow comes and what happens, nothing. As the days go on, the same thing continues to happen. You keep telling yourself you’ll get it done (whatever the project is), and you continue to procrastinate. Pretty soon, one, two, three months go by and you still haven’t moved forward on anything.

When we stop to think about it (which we have lots of time to do anyways because we aren’t doing anything to begin with), the reason why you are not getting things done is because you’re putting roadblocks in front of you by telling yourself, I can’t.

I can’t get better at posting on my social networks because I don’t have enough time. I can’t advertise on other websites because I don’t know anyone. I can’t sell products because I’m too small and no one would want to buy from me.  To me, those sound more like excuses.

Instead of telling yourself “I can’t,” tell yourself “I can.”  Not only will having a positive attitude help you change your overall outlook, but the more optimistic and enthusiastic you are – about getting better at learning how to do something, the more you’ll want to say I can! 

So the next time you want to start a project, think about what you will accomplish, and not what you won’t accomplish! Try it and I can almost guarantee that you’ll see things change right before your very eyes!
