31 days of self-love challenge: Day 2

Afternoon everyone, I’m back again for the 31 days of self-love challenge. Here is Day 2!

Get rid of a limiting belief that you have about your abilities

The phrase “I can’t” is a staple in my vocabulary. I use it day in and day out, whether it relates to running the extra mile at the gym, finishing homework, or being home on time. If there is a task that is even a slight inconvenience to me, I can’t do it.

Obviously, I can do most of the things I can do, I just say that I can’t.

There’s a quote from Confucious that says, “He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right.

When I say I can’t do something, I won’t and therefore I can’t. However, when I say I can do something, I’m going to try and more likely than not will succeed.

I need to start saying “I can.” There are some things I physically cannot do, yet. Instead of the phrase “I can’t” I want to start saying “I can’t do it yet,” because if I can’t do something today, or even tomorrow, eventually I will be able to say I can.
