I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

I can’t

on May 27, 2013

How many times do we say “I can’t”?   Do you have any idea how powerful this short and negative statement is?  As soon as you think these words, you have already convinced yourself that something is not possible.

Negative statements about yourself can be self-destructive.  Just a few simple words can damage your self-esteem, keep you from building relationships and stop you from living up to your full potential in life.

Listen carefully to the words you think and say.

  • Are they negative?
  • Are they limiting your life?
  • Are they stopping you from taking a risk and trying something new?

Most of the negative things we say to ourselves are not true.  We sometimes believe things that other people have said about us and they are not even realistic.

Whenever you have a negative thought, try to replace it with a positive thought.  When you hear yourself speaking negative words, stop yourself and change them to positive words.  Stop discouraging yourself and start encouraging yourself.Slide9

I can’t becomes I can.  Don’t tell yourself you can’t do something in life and that you aren’t good enough because you won’t even try and you might miss out on something good.  Instead tell yourself that you can do it.  You are just as good as anyone else in the world and even if you are not able to do it the same way that someone else does or maybe not as good, it doesn’t matter because we are all different and have different abilities and skills.  What is important in life is that you try your best and keep trying until you succeed.  You will fail in life, but you are never a failure until you stop trying.

You can control your thoughts and words.  You have to be consciously aware of what you are thinking and saying, then keep practicing until it becomes habit.

Have a positively positive day!
