I am always amazed how much I can achieve in life, simply when I stop saying “I can’t.” My inner beliefs have always limited my true-self. With practice and stepping out of my comfort zone persistently, I found I could achieve a great deal more than I ever thought, and began to trust there is unlimited potential within me.
Since “I can’t” means “I won’t” in our mind, if we keep repeating it, then we start to believe it. Below are some examples of the limitations we place on ourselves everyday, overtime these become our truth and yet, they are just illusions of our mind.
“I can’t play sport”
“I can’t afford to travel”
“I can’t see a better future”
“I can’t do that, it’s too difficult”
“I can’t find someone who loves me”
“I can’t forgive”
Visualising what we want and practising affirmations and mantras, help rewire our mind to believe anything is possible and can help us move forward. We don’t necessarily need to drop all our old ideas completely, they just need to be reassessed and reshaped.
Become conscious of how often you say “I can’t” and then ask “Why not?”
