Why Would I Believe That I "CAN'T???When I was in college, my FATHER told me "You aren't smart enough to graduate from college". I had nearly earned a 4 year Bachelor of SCIENCE degree and I did not believe that I "can't" do it. To hear this sabotage from my own father only provoked me to retort with "WATCH ME" and prove him wrong by graduating from college. I proved to myself that if I believed my father, that I "can't" graduate from college; that I certainly WOULD NOT graduate from college.
"I can't" is not only a phrase that is NOT in my vocabulary but I DO see it as a reason that others give to QUIT. I remind them and even myself, that Thomas Alva Edison, a reknown inventor saw that trying and failing was nothing more than showing several ways that something did NOT work. It did not mean that it could not be done. It just was not going to be done in that way. He didn't take "failure" as the final answer.
- I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. Thomas A. Edison
- “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Alva Edison
Saying that WE CAN'T do something is no more than saying, WE ARE NOT WILLING TO TRY or WE ARE AFRAID OF FAILURE or WE DON'T WANT TO DO IT for some other reason.
It isn't even FACTUAL to say that "YOU CAN'T" if you haven't TRIED to do it.
It may surprise you WHAT YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH IF YOU DON'T TELL YOURSELF that you "CAN'T"!!!
