Yes I Can!

There’s always that one person who will tell you that you can’t do something. Whether it be that dream profession, a medical ‘diagnosis’, or a goal that you’ve been looking to accomplish for a while now.

This person has weighed their options & decided that, because the average person hasn’t accomplished this, you simply can’t. It seems they’ve forgotten that anything is possible; that they’ve decided to be negative & look over the fact that miracles happen every day. This is their problem, not yours.

Unfortunately for them, you are not the average person, you’ve set goals that will get you further in life than this person could possibly imagine, & this is why:
In 1979, there was a study with the Harvard MBA program. The students were asked if they had set clear, written goals & had plans to accomplish them. Three percent of the students said yes; 13 percent had goals, but did not write them down; and 84% said they did not have any goals whatsoever.

In 1989, they took the study to a whole new level when they went back to check on those students. “The 13 percent of the class who had goals were earning, on average, twice as much as the 84 percent who had no goals at all. And what about the three percent who had clear, written goals? They were earning, on average, 10 TIMES as much as the other 97 percent PUT TOGETHER.”

With that said, I think you should take a look at this person who’s telling you that you can’t do something, ask them if they have big goals that they would like to accomplish… and, when they say no, you can simply smile & walk away.
The key to success is not only self discipline, but positive thinking.
