Think you can. You're right.

Real Estate Agent with Prado Real Estate South UT DRE# 6541633-SA00

Think you can. You're right.

 

 

This simple quote has resonated with me for most of my life. Adults have the best intentions when they say, "You can't do that!" in an effort to keep children safe from harm but the word 'can't' is self-defeating.

 

One thing not allowed in our home was the phrase, "I can't" because even voicing it/repeating it meant a mediocre effort toward anything attempted. Facing fears and preparation helps success.

 

"Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." became the sage advice given to our children when challenges arose and also mine when changing careers at 45 years of age.

 

Though self-confidence slowly came as I learned everything possible about the real estate industry, mistakes were made. Moving along, adapting quickly was key to maintaining momentum.

 

Henry Ford's wise quote always came to mind through the years. As I began to think of a tag line that works for business, the word can has been such a positive force in life that I knew Wanda Can was it!

 

Because WANDA CAN!

That's a smart business phrase!  Mine started out with my phrase "Got Green?" which is my business website with green vendors.  Another one is "Just Green It" kind like Just do It, aka Nike's phrase.  I don't have them on anything so maybe I should add that under my logo?!

Hi Wanda. I like this quote very much, and often say it to myself, if I am wondering can I, or can't I.

Great advise. I like the idea of not allowing the word can't in your home.

I always like the idea that you don't know until you try. Too many people just sit in limbo trying to theorize whether a strategy will work or not.
