Monday Morning Motivator and Some Points to Ponder...
     Success comes in cans, failure in can'ts.
Success comes in cans...
      For many of us, "I can't" is too prevalent in our vocabulary. I can't do this; I can't do that; I can't; I can't; I can't... 
     When life's journey gets difficult, it is far too easy to throw our hands up in despair and say, "I can't"; "It's too hard"; "It's impossible". When you start feeling this way, "Can it!
     It is amazing how much we can accomplish when we adopt the attitude, I can and I will, if I try just a little harder...

Yes, I can. Yes, we can. Yes, I will! Great, positive thoughts to start a Monday. It's so easy these days to get beat down. Attitude makes all the difference.

Have a great Monday!

Excellent post. One of the greatest motivators for my father was the words "You can't do that". You could almost see the brain explode into action.

Can't or won't, that is the question.

Michael you just reminded me of something that has helped me through my life whenever I employed it.  My mother always told the story of me learning to walk and how I would say "Can Do" over and over.  I was her Can Do girl and when I set my mind to it I Can Do anything.  I just forget to put my mind to it sometimes.  Have a great week my friend.

Hi Michael:

I can't remember the last time I said I can't!!

Probably the only acceptable statement in using I can't.

MICHAEL: Sometimes it is easier to say "can't" then to say "can" because folks don't want to put out the effort to change. Your inspirational Monday Morning Motivator may get some folks to jump out of bed and say yes I can do this today and spring into action. We all have that choice, thank goodness.
