Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Ask Yourself - How Can I Do It?

Ask Yourself - How Can I Do It?


Ask Yourself - How Can I Do It?

“Your resources are always far greater than you imagine them

to be. Never ask, “can I do this”? Ask instead,

how can I do this?”

Dan Zadra, Entrepreneur, Creator of inspiring books and gifts


As I see it . . . . . . .


Ask Yourself - how can I do it


When you’re facing a task . . . . focus on the positive  . . . . and ask yourself - how can I do it . . . . successfully.


The question focuses you forward . . . . looking for answers . . . . looking for solutions . . . . and creating  a successful outcome.


Your time will be put to far better use in focusing forward . . . .  on what has to be done and finding answers . . . .


Your success . . . . and your compensation will become a direct reflection of  your ability to find ways to get things done successfully.


Ask yourself - how can I do it? In that answers is your future.

Lou, this is so true. If we focus on the past and the problem we miss moving forward with how to solve a problem.

Personally I love a life worth living, a career worth having, and a business worth owning.  Your compensation is a direct correlation with how much you want to put into it.

This quote illustrates the power of a single word.  "How" vs. "Can."

Before saying that you can't do it...Ask how you can do it and then get it done.
