SPRING CLEANING YOUR MIND

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — sakaco @ 1:19 pm

YES YOU CAN! You can have an “I can” attitude! You can be the kind of person that never let’s anything stop her! You can clean out those old thoughts of “can’t” in your mind and freshen it up with “I can” thoughts! Yes, you CAN!

We’re Spring Cleaning our minds this week and I could use a fresh dusting off of the “I can’t ” thinking. How about you?

Especially after a long winter of sometimes dreary weather we can let our thoughts follow drearily along  if we let them. It’s time to take control of those thoughts, and clean out the cobwebs of “can’t”!

Henry Ford said, “If you think you can do a thing or if you think you can’t do a thing, you are right.”  Our beliefs either limit us or allow us to do what it is we desire to do. What is your preference? Of course we would rather be able to follow our desires. But it all begins with believing we can.

One of my  favorite children’s books is, “The Little Engine That Could”. I’m sure you are familiar with it. It was when the little blue engine believed  he could climb the mountain  that he did it. What a great thing to teach children! Children easily believe they can do even the impossible! And yet as we grow older we begin to doubt ourselves and lose that wonderful “can do” attitude that accomplishes more than we could have imagined!

It seems like such a simple thing, just to believe we can,  so too often we ignore this kind of advice.  And to be sure, there are more things we need to know to accomplish the things we’re going after, but it all begins with believing  we can.

So what is it that you have not believed you could do? Would you be willing to change your thinking and have an “I can” attitude? Imagine the possibilities!

Sherrie and I are always working on changing our beliefs to believe that we can, indeed, do those things we want to do. Maybe not always in the way we expected, but nevertheless, we’ve accomplished more with our “can do” attitudes than if we thought “I can’t” and gave up! And we’d like to challenge you to believe you can also! We’ll be sharing more in the days to come and in workshops about how to accomplish more in life. Even how to change those old attitudes! But for now begin thinking about what you would like to believe you can do! And then begin to believe you can! You don’t have to know how you are going to do it. The how will come later.

Be watching our next post for someone who believed the impossible and found a way to accomplish it!

YES, YOU CAN!
