“Whether you think you can or think your can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
Having 1000’s of hours of coaching conversations over the years, it is amazing the power of the mind. What I hear and see a lot of individuals struggle with is their own thoughts. It is the simple belief of can or can’t that can separate those that are average and those that are great.When you speak into your mind that you can’t do something, you’ve already lost the battle.
I can’t make that phone call.
I can’t have that conversation.
I can’t stick to my schedule.
“I can’t” becomes even more problematic when you add the word “because”.
I can’t make that phone call because I don’t know what to say.
I can’t have that conversation because I believe the outcome will be “x”.
I can’t stick to my schedule because “Coach Jeremy, you don’t understand what’s happening in my world.
“When you think I can’t, you’re right.
Now switch the above to “I can” statements.
I can make that phone call.
I can have that conversation.
I can stick to my schedule.
Notice the shift in your energy when you speak into your mind an “I can” statement. Now make them more powerful with attaching an “I am” statement.
I can make that phone call because I am bringing value to the person on the other end of the line that no one else can provide.
I can have that conversation because I am confident in being able to help my clients solve a program.
I can stick to my schedule because I am organized and efficient in the way I conduct myself.
When you think you can, you’re right.
Make today a day that you switch your thinking to “I can”, and watch the results that come your way. You are powerful. You have the opportunity to shape your mindset to allow you to do powerful things both in life and business.
