Oh Yes You Can!

Stop getting sucked into telling yourself “I can’t…”

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Often “I can’t…” is just not the case…

Often “I choose not to…” is really what is happening…

Stop getting sucked into telling yourself “I can’t…”

If Roger Bannister had said – it can’t be done – he wouldn’t have broken the 4 minute mile and proved to everyone who has run the mile in under 4 minutes since, that it actually could be done, and they could do it too.

What are you telling yourself you “can’t” do in your life or business?
