I am living positively at all times and have given up using negative phrases like “I can’t” because I know I CAN!
Your brain is designed to solve problems and reach goals, and that means you must give up phrases like “I can’t,” “I wish I were able to,” and “If only I could.” Those negative words dis-empower you and actually make you weaker.
When you were a toddler, you climbed up on anything that stood in your way. But little by little, your sense of invincibility was eroded by the negative reactions you received from your family, teachers, and friends. Eventually, you no longer believed you could conquer anything in your way.
Too often we feel the need to have others believe in us and in our dreams in order to be successful, but your decisions need to be based on your own goals and desires, not those of your parents, friends, spouse, children, and co-workers. How can you possibly follow your heart if you are sitting around worrying what other people think about you?
🌷 The 18/40/60 Rule:
When you are 18, you worry about what everyone is thinking about you; when you are 40 you don’t give a darn what anybody thinks of you; when you are 60, you realize that nobody is thinking about you at all.
Stop wasting time worrying about what other people think and spend that time focusing on doing the things that will achieve your goals.
