From the time we are young children we are exposed to the idea that if we think we can do something, if we believe in ourselves, then we can do it.
Take The Little Engine That Could as an example. The little engine thinks he can pull the big train over the hill, he can and he does. He believes in himself, and he succeeds.
Parents encourage their youngsters to walk, to run, to throw the ball, to tie their shoes... by cheering, "You can do it!" We tell our children to believe in themselves. We tell them they can be anything and do anything.
Then somewhere along the way, the children stop believing. We stop believing. We stop believing that we can do it.
It's time to start believing again. Because here's the thing: If you believe you can't, you're right. If you believe you can, you're right.
Whether you can or can't do what you want or be what you want truly is up to you, and that is true for your personal life and for business.
What you may not know - perhaps because you haven't tried, is that actually speaking out loud to yourself, telling yourself repeatedly that you do believe in yourself is a very powerful thing, indeed. While you may feel like a crazy person at first, once you feel it working you'll realize how brilliant this really is.
For me, it's time to let everything go and focus on me, saying words that remind me to believe.
Here are some to help get you started on your I CAN journey:
I am happy.
I am a successful.
I love myself.
I believe in myself.
I believe that my work is significant for my family, myself, and others.
I can and will succeed in my business.
I will not quit.
I have what it takes.
Live into the knowledge that you are already everything that you want to be, and you will get there!
