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.

When we step out of our comfort zone to learn new things, it can be confronting.  Challenging.  When we step into the unknown and learn we may be putting ourselves in a situation of uncertainty and not knowing.  Our confidence can be unsteady as we slowly learn and practice our way back to confidence.
