Guess what we’re doing today

Here’s another example of how our thinking affects our success or failure more than anything else:

If you think you can or think you can’t, in most cases you are right.

  • Think you can write a blog that adds value to others? – You can.
  • Think you can successfully change careers? – You can.
  • Think you can successfully go after another market? – You can.
  • Think you’re going to make a sale? – You will.
  • Think that you have what it takes to solve the problem? – You’ll solve the problem.
  • Think you can lose the weight? – You’ll lose the weight.
  • Think you have the time to learn, grow and change? – You will make the time.
  • Think you don’t have the time? – You won’t have the time.
  • Think you can? – You’ll figure out how.
  • Think you have the answers? – You’ll tap in and find the answers
  • Think you’re a winner? – You’re a winner

Think you can’t? – Guess what? – You won’t.

Just a couple days ago, one of my associates asked me to help her install software on to her computer. She needed it because she thought that her software was different than mine and she wanted to get it because she couldn’t do something on her’s that she saw me doing on mine.

I went to her computer and told her, the first thing we have to do is to agree and acknowledge that we have the same program and that her program has the same capabilities. If we approach it with this framework, we’ll figure this out. She reluctantly agreed and even though we had to fumble around for a while, we figured it out. And now she knows that hers can do the same thing as mine.

If you think you can or think you can’t. — You’re usually right.

P.S. Think you can tackle and clean out the garage? – Guess what we’re doing today…
