If you are anything like me, then it’s not uncommon for your mind to be spinning with new ideas, goals, or dreams. In many ways it can get overwhelming as you think through each possible scenario, determine the process to get from point A to point B, decide if this idea is worth the time, effort and (potential) money.
I don’t just mean this in the sense of business or entrepreneurship; I mean this in the sense of everyday life, with our health, our fitness, whatever goals you may set for yourself on a daily basis.
I’ve mentioned a few “secret” projects lately and when I say that, it’s not because I’m trying really hard to be secretive or because I’m just trying to leave you all guessing; it’s because I’m still in the process of determining whether or not these things truly are possible and within my reach.
With that said, the first step in doing so is to clear your mind of can’t.
Looking to do your first pull-up? (Me too) Don’t say you can’t!
Want to publish a book or short story? Don’t say you can’t!
Trying to figure out how to start your own business? Don’t say you can’t!
Working to save money to pay back a debt owed? Don’t say you can’t!
It all starts with that simple change in your mindset.
I get that all of those things aren’t easy; I get that you may have things on your list that you’re working towards that I didn’t mention, but regardless of the scenario, it all starts with our mindset. If we’re clear, if we keep our eye on the prize and if we truly believe that we CAN, then we are already one step closer to actually getting there.
Let me say that again, just in case you missed it…
If we truly believe that we CAN, then we are already one step closer to actually getting there.
So clear your mind of can’t; remove can’t from your vocabulary; and now see how much closer you already are on your journey.

What goal are you working towards that could benefit from this mindset change?
Do you have any other mantras that help you get closer to achieving your dreams?
