Today’s thought for consideration is on a piece of cheesy advice (courtesy of The Little Engine That Could movie):
If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, you can’t. Either way, you’re right.
This isn’t about simply telling yourself some pretty words. Rather, it’s about actively being aware of where your head is at and the energy you’re approaching something with.
When I think I can and practice feeling like I can, I see that my brain is more open — it’s like it’s searching for ways to make whatever it is I want to happen, happen. Possibilities, opportunities, “maybe I could try that…” start to appear.
But when I’m in the “nope, can’t” space? Everything shuts down. My brain is closed; the possibilities and options seem to disappear.
What might happen with a dose of “maybe I can…”?
