We can change our attitude from I CAN’T to I CAN! Do not forget to read the previous parts of the article:
Will you think of some opportunity or possibility in your life right now that would require you to bring a can-do attitude? An attitude of assumed confidence rather than presumed incompetence?
For at least next week I encourage you to be on the lookout for signs of your inner “can’t” voice.
When you hear that voice whispering all the reasons why you can’t do something, begin to consciously and intentionally shift your focus to the much softer “can” voice.
Shift your perception from can’t to can, from fear to fun, from no to yes.
The Beginner’s Mind
In Buddhism there is a term, Beginner’s Mind that encourages practitioners to bring an empty mind, free of any preconceptions, to each new experience they encounter.
Bar the possibility of attaining that level of emptiness. I want to encourage you to cultivate and nurture an attitude and perception of optimism.
Take a moment, right now. Imagine how different your life if you approach it with a different attitude.
“I Can” instead of an attitude of “I Can’t” or even “I may be able to.”
Imagine that, like those little kids being guided down the slope by a nurturing, supportive ski instructor. You had been blessed with a “life instructor.”
The instructor who instilled in you the truth, the feeling, the knowledge that anything you want to do, you can!
How would that feel? How would that change the way you approach your life? If you knew that you could not fail, what project would you take on?
If you knew that you could only succeed at whatever you attempted, how would your life be different?
