If you assume in favor of yourself and act as if it is possible, then you will do the things that are necessary to bring about the result. If you believe it is impossible, you will not do what is necessary, and you will not produce the result. Either way, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can’t be done.
The words I can’t actually disempower you. They actually make you weaker when you say them. In my seminars, I use a technique called applied kinesiology to test people’s muscle strength as they say different phrases. I have them put their left arm out to their side, and I push down on it with my left hand to see what their normal strength is. Then I have them chose something they think they can’t do, such as I can’t play the piano, and say it out loud. I then push down on their arm again. It is always weaker. Then I have them say, “I can do it” (I can play the piano), and their arm is stronger.
