Lou Ludwig Success Tips: There is No Such Thing as I Can’t

There is No Such Thing as I Can’t


Motivational Power Quote

There is No Such Thing as I Can't

I can accept failure,

but I can't accept not trying.

Michael Jordon, NBA Hall of Fame Basketball Player


As I see it . . . . . . . 

If we believe that we can; we will, if we believe we can't; we won't.   

What ever you believe becomes your dominant thought and in time, what we think we will do.  

I can or I can't is a choice. I can is a choice of push forward overcoming obstacles to reach our goals. I can't is a choice to quit on ourselves and to start the slide backwards.  

There is no such thing as I can't. The person that says they can't is a person that's really saying they won't try.  

Our beliefs determine the outcome before we start. The possibility thinker thinks in terms of I can and then takes the actions with the positive outlook of I will. 

There is not such think as I can't only those with the mind set of I won't.

Lou - I said recently to one of my assistants "I can find dozens of people who stop when they hit the first barrier - I need you to push through to positive results..."  Not only "trying" but not looking for the first opportunity to quit!

Lou - Love love MJ, I lived in Chicago when the Bulls kept winning championships, he was always a positive influence and a great role model.

I don't remember who said it, but "Whether you think you can or think you can't, you are right. "

As long as one has given their all, it is not failing. It is just an obstacle.

One of the best things my high school football coach ever did was to show me that we can if we believe we can. You are right, Lou, it is our mindset that will either bog us down or allow us to hurdle an obstacle.

Lou, thanks for the good quote.  I think that the language we use preprograms our actions, from the very moment we start articular our action plans and intentions.  This is a great example of this.  Cheers, Jark.

Oh boy, was I in trouble as a child when I told my grandmother "I can't"  She used to say the say  "proof it"
