Banning Can’t

It’s harder to do than we think.

Can’t is a word that pops up all day long and the more we hear it, the more it becomes believable.

Make a mental note every time you hear the word “can’t” and every time you say it. 

The same applies to the word “won’t” – a sneaky variation of “can’t”.

Find ways to replace it with “will” i.e., “I can’t make it by 6:30” now becomes “I believe I will arrive by (whatever time is reasonable).” Or “I can’t do that presentation in front of all those people” which becomes “I will try to do that presentation in front of all those people.” 

Can’t is a limiter.

Will is a promoter.

One declares defeat before trying.

The other anticipates victory because you’re trying.
