Have you ever used the words "I Can't" before?
I hear people ALL THE TIME use those 2 words. They think they can't do something, be something or get something they want.
Just think what this does. When you say the words "I Can't" you are slamming your mind shut to any possibilities of how "You Can" and all of the possibilities and opportunities around us everyday. You give up on yourself and all the possibilities that are out there. Now that is what I call "stinken thinken". Instead of using the words, "I Can't" Change it to the words, "How Can I?"
Just think what happens now... Instead of your mind slamming shut. It is now working for you, trying to find out ways to make it happen. For example, before you might have thought... "I can't sponsor 4 people in one week/month." And you didn't!! Now you think, "How can I sponsor 4 people in one week/month?" And your creative juices start flowing... working FOR YOU.
Instead of "I can't afford (do/be/have) that." Now think, "How can I afford (do/be/have) that?" And watch the possibilities start unfolding for you because your mind is now open and can see the opportunities that are present.
Try it for a month. Whenever you catch yourself saying the dreaded words of "I Can't". Stop yourself and change it to "How Can I?"
