Literally, what we think about we bring about. Our minds are powerful beyond our understanding. Your mindset determines who you become and what you accomplish. As a man thinketh, so is he. Seriously, your life will be directly determined by your mindset.
The Difference Between “Can’t” and “Won’t”
I have had the wonderful privilege to travel around the world with my family. I have had the privilege to meet thousands of incredible people, coach, mentor, speak to large audiences and help youth, adults, rich, poor of many different races, backgrounds and languages. It’s been such a wonderful journey! And one thing I’ve learned that there is a huge difference between CAN’T and WON’T.
Playing The Victim Role Won’t Get You Anyway
Often we get focused on limitations and sometimes we get tempted to play the victim role! In reality, many of us are using the word CAN’T, when really the message we’re conveying is WON’T. Maybe it’s because of a high price. Everything great has a great price tag. And to often we say ” I can’t do that” when really it’s won’t. ” I won’t pay the price. I won’t get up early. I won’t stay up late. I won’t read those books. I won’t sacrifice some of those silly and trivial things around me.” Get rid of those things and get them out of your life so that you can live in an excellent way.
Set High Standards and High values
I want to challenge you today to set really high standards, get your values super high and be proud and pleased with that quest for excellence. And don’t allow the critics to tear you down.
Stop saying I can’t and start doing it, get that vision and start doing it. And the most important, stop allowing yourself to say “I can’t”. Whatever it takes to be great you will do it because greatness is in you, genius is in you, and awesome-sauce is in you!
So let it come out, do what it takes and join this journey for greatness, for awesome life and for becoming your very best self. Think about this for a second and let it permeate your soul. Envision your potential! Don’t ever let that “can’t” or that “won’t” get in your way. Clear that path. Forget about what others say to tear you down and to try to stop you. Set a quest for awesome, high standards and super high values. Live that unconventional, great life. Go out and make it happen.
