Here are some common things we say:
I can’t lose weight.
I can’t have supper with you tonight.
I can’t get that project done on time.
I can’t be happy.
Here are some financial (and common) things we say:
I can’t pay off my debt.
I can’t save money.
I can’t budget.
I can’t make more money.
I can’t, I can’t, I can’t.
Does that sound familiar?
We say “I can’t” to ourselves all the time.
And in some weird way, it makes us feel better — like we become exempt from the trouble because we simply can’t do it.
But you and I both know, “I can’t” is just an excuse.
Really: I can’t = I won’t.
Ouch, that doesn’t sound so good, right?
Here’s an idea.
Instead of I can’t, try “I can if…”
Permit yourself to dig deeper.
I can if _____________________________.
(Go ahead, try it. Fill in the blank.)
What would happen if you became a “can-if” person?
Like everything is figureoutable.
How would your world look?
Could something so simple have a profound effect on your finances and your life?
I know it does.
