Sometimes it's not up to us to 'fix' other peoples' issues.  How often have you given unsolicited advice?  Told someone what you think they should do?  Quoted a reference or source that you consider could be helpful?  Yes - I certainly have.  Here's the more important question ... did the other person want or ask for, your advice or opinion?

When you say to yourself “I can’t”, is this true?  I mean is it absolutely true that you can’t?  Or are you telling yourself porkies?  And … if you’re being dishonest with yourself, what is it that you’re avoiding saying? 

Challenging questions?  They’re meant to be.

The word can’t is a contraction of the word cannot.  I bet if you replaced the word can’t with cannot, you might think twice about saying it.  I hear a lot of people saying that they can’t do this or they can’t do that, when really they are choosing not to.  It’s often an automatic response.
