This isn’t my typical Writer’s Corner Office BLOG… but it’s something that I care a lot about and wanted to share that with you all as well.
There’s No Such Thing As “Can’t”
If there is one thing I hate more than anything in the world, it is when people tell someone that they can’t do something.
This really pushes my buttons because these people have the audacity to believe that they know everything and what they think is right. So if they think you can’t do something, they OBVIOUSLY must be right.
I’ve seen this happen my whole life in the competitive sports world and now that I’ve graduated I’m starting to see it in the business world too.
There are only a small number of people who are able to look beyond the negativity and turn it into positive encouragement and motivation. It’s not hard, it just takes a change in how you look at life, and I know that you can do it – you have more potential than you can even imagine.
I hope this BLOG can serve as positive encouragement tool for you. That it can be the motivation to change your frame of mind to turn negativity into positive fuel.
Just because other people like to think negatively doesn’t mean that you have to. Life is so much easier when you only see the positives.
From my own experience, I definitely play golf a lot better when I’m surrounded by positive encouragement and people who want me to succeed. I also am a lot happier and more successful in my working environment when I’m surrounded by positive people as well. Not the fake positive encouragement, the real kind – I know that you know what I mean…
You have a lot more say in your destiny than those nay-sayers do! And that’s being a realist, not an optimist. Here are some things that can help
1. Surround yourself with the things that make you happy.
2. Keep the people who encourage you to follow your dreams close to you. Take your dreams, work hard, and turn your dreams into goals.
You’ll never know what you are capable of until you try.
Never give up!
I know it sounds cheesy, but having motivating quotes around can really help you stay positive.
It’s never a matter of can’t…. because if you want something badly enough and if you work hard at it, never giving up, you most certainly CAN do it!
So next time someone tells them that you CAN’T do something, I hope that lights the fire within and makes you want to do it even more. I promise you that every great accomplishment in society can with its fair share of critics who said it couldn’t be done… Well my friends, if you want it badly enough, it most certainly can do it.
