Turn 'I can't' into 'how can I?'
I can’t do it.
I can’t get this job.
I can’t look like that or feel that way.
I can’t get rank one in World of Warcraft.
I can’t, I can’t, I can’t.
Stop. You can, you can do anything.
The question becomes: ‘How Can I?’.
Begin to think, if I truly wanted change in my life, what would need to take place? What version of myself would I need to become? What habits do I have now that don’t support this change? What priorities am I making more important than this? I.e. if I want to get 8 hours of sleep per night, but Netflix time is currently a non-negotiable, am I prioritizing sleep or Netflix?
Begin to visualize the version of yourself that is doing what you desire...
If I wanted to get this job, what would I need to do to get hired? What does the ideal candidate look like?
If I wanted to look or feel a certain way, what choices do I need to begin making, or not making? What daily habits to need to begin to instill?
If I wanted to get rank one in World of Warcraft, what do I realistically need to work on? How many hours of dedicated practice do I need daily?
What daily habits need to change? What steps should I begin to take? What do I need to instill to become the best version of myself?
If we are really honest with ourselves, what is actually happening here? We don't want something as bad as we think we do.
If we want to be successful, but we end up spending our free time on social media or binge watching TV, did we really want to be successful?
If we want a strong and functional body, but in our free time we are eating or sleeping, did we really want that body?
This is simply a question of priorities. Do we want this bad enough to change other aspects of our life?
We all have the power to shift these priorities at any moment.
Turn ‘I can’t’ into ‘How Can I?’.
