My dear friend, clear your mind of can’t.

My dear friend, clear your mind of can’t.  – Samuel Johnson

 

I once had a coach that frequently said, “can’t means won’t.”

 

Coach was right . . . Can’t means won’t.  There are things that I won’t do.  There are times that my values, being intentional and true to myself, won’t permit me to act in a certain way.

 

There are times that fear leads me to can’t.  In these cases, with the help of others and by getting my mind right, I overcome my fear and create a “can do” attitude.

 

There are times when productive discomfort must be embraced and we must move forward.  There are other times when it’s good to say, “I won’t” because it reflects your value.
