Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or you can’t…you’re right.”
Life always says, “Yes.”
Whatever you think about yourself will form the basis of what happens to you in life. If you think you are too dumb, too fat, too young or too old…you are. Or, a better way to say it would be…you will be.
Even when things go right for you you’ll be thinking, “Well, that was just luck because I’m too______ for that to really be my doing.”
However, if you lean in a more positive direction: I can do that. I can’t be stopped. I’m just the right person to (fill in the blank)…you’re more likely to have a positive outcome.
A wagon load of philosophers, notably Thoreau, have pointed out that if you move confidently in the direction of your dreams the universe seems to line up to make them come true.
Here’s the key though: Very often your dream doesn’t come true exactly the way you envisioned. You have to be willing to allow life to fulfill your dream in a way that fits you.
Remember, life always says, “Yes.”
What are you asking? To what do you want life to say “Yes”?
