It is my personal opinion that two words are the driving force behind your personally achieving your outcome and your WHY in Life. These two words are the most powerful words that you can and will ever speak to yourself about any situation – “CAN” and “CAN’T” As I’ve said many times, “CAN” is a word of power; whereas, “CAN’T” is a word of retreat.
You have the power to decide if you wish to ACHIEVE or RETREAT because when you speak victory words such as “I CAN,” you will attain whatever you set out to do regardless of what others are saying to you. Many famous entrepreneurs in the world, such as Ray Kroc, Fred Astaire, Walt Disney, and Dick Clark. I can attest that if you spoke with each of them individually, they would tell you that at the beginning of their journey, most people told them that you CAN’T do that! Fortunately, they disregarded these statements and listened to their inner voice, who said, “Oh yes, I CAN!”
The key in life is to realize the most important person who speaks to you every day is you on the inside! You need to review your WHY in Life and see if you are on track toward achieving your WHY, or are you on a detour because someone told you, “You CAN’T do that, so stop dreaming and just forget about it!” As a personal mindset builder, you need to speak to your inner person and say to yourself, “Today, I will take another productive stride!”
Each morning, I visualize myself winning. My personal outcome for each day is to build a community of people with whom we can inspire and motivate us to make the world a better place to live. I have to admit if it was not for my inner person saying, “John, you CAN do it! YOU CAN do it!” I may not be in the position of success that I am today. Some days it is still difficult, but guess what — we ARE doing it!
I am personally very proud and appreciative of the people who have stepped up to the plate and made individual contributions of talent and time and, when combined, have made an empowered team at the Di Lemme Development Group – a team that keeps on building each day!
In summary, you need to ask yourself a sincere question, “Am I listening to my victory words from the inside, or am I letting the outer defeat (loser) words control my outcome in life?”.
