“No, I can’t.”

That’s what we all tell ourselves when we dream of doing something different in our lives. There’s always an excuse, but “No, I can’t” is the most convenient. That negative thought absolves us of all responsibility.
If we dream it, we can do it.

I’ve found, though, during the most low points in my life, that if I have a dream and am willing to perspire, then “yes, I can”.

2,500 years ago, The Buddha summarized positive, life-changing thinking with:
“What we think, we become.”

I know it’s has become a trite cliche, but our own thoughts about ourselves and our circumstances control the outcome. What we put in determines what we get out. It’s so simple, but yet, so difficult.

If we continue to get up in the morning, keep our eyes on the solution, and work smart and hard, we’ll get there.

That’s my philosophy for today.

To me, motivational speakers put on too much of a show that detracts from their “our thoughts matter” message. Yet, Tony Robbins’ contagious enthusiasm makes us receptive to his important insights about our state of mind.

Robbins says we need:

  • certainty
  • uncertainty (variety, surprises)
  • significance (we need to feel special)
  • connection and love
  • growth
  • contribute, help to others (pay it forward)
