I’ve never given out homework before, so this post will be a first.
Here’s your assignment.
Sit down with a piece of paper and a pen.
Now close your eyes and visualize some change you want to make.
Open your eyes, pick up the pen and take one minute to write down all the endings you can think of to the sentence, “I can’t make the change I want because…”
How many sentence endings did you write?
Let’s go again, but this time take one minute to write down all the endings you can think of to the sentence, “I can make the change I want because…”
How many “I can” endings did you write?
If you had more “I can” than “I can’t” endings, please accept my congratulations. You’re on your way to driving the change you want, because your belief is winning out over your fear.
If you had more “I can’t” than “I can” endings, start over and repeat until your “I can” side wins. You must practice seeing more of what’s possible than what’s against you because success comes to those who say “I can.”
