Who said YOU CANT?
To be a champion, you have to believe in yourself when nobody else will. - Sugar Ray Robinson
Back in the Garden of Eden, when the world was still very young, just after our father Adam and our mother Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they hid themselves from God. In the cool of the day, God came to them and said, Adam, Eve, where are you? They said, God, we are hiding because we are naked. God immediately knew that the enemy the devil has been talking to them. So He said, Adam, who told you that you are naked?
God is asking the same to you right now, who said you cant be great, who said you cant be successful, who said you cant be rich, who said you cant be a blessing to this generation, who said you cant achieve that goal, who said you cant find true love, who said you cant be the best father or mother and husband or wife in the world?
Who said you cant discover and develop your talent, who said you cant preach the gospel, who said you cant heal the sick, who said you cant help the poor, who said you cant give scholarship to a community of children, who said you cant love your neighbor as yourself, who said you cant impact lives in a positive way, who said you cant drop those bad habits of yours?
Who said you cant write your name in the sand of time, who said you cant live a righteous life, who said you are not beautiful or handsome; who said you cant graduate with first class, who said you cant overcome that challenge, who said you were born a mistake or an error?
who said you wont travel to places or tour the world, who said you are lonely, who said you are suffering, who said you are sick, who said you are going to die, who said you cant be a hero, who said you cant be the best child or parent in the world and who said you are a failure? Who! Who! Who said it? If it is anyone, be it your father, teacher, pastor, doctor, friend, sibling, boss etc then it is a big lie from the pit of hell.
If it is you that said it then, am sorry my friend because it might just be true. We are the only ones that can define our lives, not any other person. Brian Tracy wrote You are the architect of your own destiny; you are the master of your own fate; you are behind the steering wheel of your life. There are no limitations to what you can do, have, or be. Except the limitations you place on yourself by your own thinking. You are confined only by the walls you build yourself. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.
If you are going to be successful, you need to give up the phrase I cant and its family members like I wish I were able to, People like me dont do it, Can I really do this? etc. The words I cant actually disempower you. They make you weaker than you were when you said it. Remember Success comes in cans'. Failures come in cants'.
