Can't is a killer
Can't is stopping you from living a happier, better life
Because you.. Can't... So the story's over, right?
You Can't lose weight and keep it off
You Can't travel to that place you've dreamed of
You Can't learn that thing that fascinates you
And sometimes you have a good excuse losing your motivation, sometimes you truly Can't
You might need to catch your breath
You might be in survival mode
You might be in poor health
Usually, it's just that you Can't,... RIGHT NOW
So don't re-enforce that false Can't
Don't give false power to that false Can't
Stop giving credit to Can't that it doesn't deserve
Because when you want to try again,
You'll hear in your head that you Can't
You'll remind yourself repeatedly that you Can't
Neutralize that Can't
By adding a big Yet
"I Can't lose weight and keep it off!"
I haven't Yet!
"I Can't run a marathon!"
I haven't run one Yet!
"I Can't travel to that amazing place!"
I haven't gone there Yet!
Soooooo much more empowering, right?
Don't cut yourself off from living your bucket list life. Leave doors open for you to jump through the next time your motivation empowers you to take your shot. And next time you feel a Can't creeping up on you, smack it down with a Yet!
