In college, I took a class that spoke of “self-limiting beliefs.” It is things that we believe about ourselves that actually have the capability to prevent us from accomplishing great things.
It goes hand-in-hand with “self-fulfilling prophecies.”
Things happen because we believe they will.
There was a time period where a lot of my sentences started with “I don’t think I can…” When I would be asked something, I would pull out a large, red stop sign and render myself incapable.
Part of that sentence was correct. I don’t think.
When we limit ourselves, we are not really thinking clearly. We prevent good things from happening to us that otherwise would have.
You have the power to accomplish as much as you can imagine. All you need to do is figure out a way to get it done.
Centuries ago, people would have never imagined a thing such as an airplane could exist. If people were flying, it was witchcraft.
However, in 1903 the Wright brothers made their first flights in Kitty Hawk, an airplane that they had dreamt up. They believed that they could and they did.
Saying ”I Can” is the first step to creating marvels.
If you never believe “I Can,” how will you ever get it accomplished?
Start with positive productive thoughts. If we get ourselves in that mindset that we can and will accomplish something it sets the blueprint to get it accomplished.
The things you say have a huge impact on what happens as well. Words have power. The bible tells of being able to speak things into existence. It even says that you can move mountains with just your words and faith.
“For most certainly I tell you, whoever may tell this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and doesn’t doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is happening; he shall have whatever he says.” -Mark 11:23
Speaking good things into your life and having faith that they will happen will help you accomplish them. Likewise, speaking negative things into your life will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Our mind is incredibly powerful. Choose to believe things that will benefit instead of limit you.
You can go as far as you believe you can.
So, the next time someone asks you if you can do something. Start and end with “I can.”
