So whats is your attitude in general when it comes to ready to take new challenges; Do you say I can’t or are you like the ones who says I can? Can both types of people be right?

“The man who says he can, and the man who says he can’t are both correct.”

Let me tell you a story about a man who graduated and decided to start a restaurant. At the time of graduation, the man was not financially established and had everything to lose from starting a restaurant.

All odds were against him and it was not viable to start at a time when restaurants were only an up-and-coming concept in his city. He trusted his gut and started it. At first, business was slow and eventually sales started picking up. He went on introducing newer things despite the risk associated and it paid off bounties. He kept going despite a fire incident and to this day the restaurant runs well with dedicated and loyal staff.

The highlight of this story is that the man believed in himself when no one else did. This quote is by Confucius, a Chinese philosopher whose teachings became integrated into Confucianism which taught personal and morality and correctness of social relationships.

The basic message from this quote is that believing in yourself and your abilities can you move mountains. Sitting idle will not help you. Belief plus a will to follow up on it by researching and pushing yourself is the way to materialize your dreams and achieve big things in life.

Practice this:

1.  Reflect: Do you believe in yourself?

If not, read on I can change my thoughts or Guided meditations


2. Respond:
Take steps to believe “I CAN”. 
Repeat a set of Affirmations to change your mindset. 


3. Integrate: If things are not working out for you, take time out to remind yourself that you are strong, and this is just a blip in your radar.


Affirmation – “I am RESILIENT!”  Repeat & Believe that your self-belief will you above your and help you come out in flying colors!
