Have you ever heard of this ?
” If you think you can , you are right.
If you think you can’t , you are right ” — Henry Ford
Isn’t capacity/capability is just state of mind ? Let me try to explain this through some real life examples.
My brother’s friend wanted to start his own business but he used to think that he is not capable of doing it all by himself. He would always tell himself that he is too young to start his own business and his mind would show him all the possible reasons why he cant do it. His mind showed him all the problems like lack of knowledge, financial constraints, infrastructure and above all the fear of failure. Since business wasn’t an option for him ( as he used to think) , he joined a multinational IT company in Bangalore. It was then he realized that it wasn’t something he wanted to do. He talked to my brother and me about it. We just told him one thing “if you really want to start your own business , just tell yourself that you ‘CAN’ do it and feel that you ‘CAN’ do it” . It was no less than a surprise to him that his mind started showing him all the possible ways of doing his own business. His dad decided to help him with finances. His cousin decided to help him with technical stuff and his mind freed him from the fear of failure . His “I CAN” played all the magic.
One female who was working in a multinational company got married and had kids. She wanted to work again but she used to tell herself that she CAN’T work and her mind would show her all the possible reasons why she can’t like manage cooking , taking care of kids , household stuff and what not. One day her husband met with an accident. He was bed ridden for six months. To take care of finances ,this female now decided to work and just told herself that she “CAN’ manage both work and household stuff. As the law of ” I CAN” goes, all the ways opened up and she could find a well paying ‘work from home’ job. She could very well manage both the things. Her “I CAN” again did the magic
In all the above cases , nothing else changed but the state of mind . Potential was always there but people failed to realize it. Most of us know don’t even know our real potential because we know ourselves from surface and say I CAN’T . Trust me WHENEVER you will say and think I CAN’T , your mind will show you plenty of reasons for why you cant .
So for everything you WANT to do , always say and believe that you CAN and then you don’t have to worry about anything else. Rest everything else will be taken care of by your mind and things around you. The whole universe will conspire to help to achieve it No doubt you will be tested time and again but only thing you will have keep saying is “I CAN” and I assure you that no force can stop from getting there then. Don’t think its a coincidence that things sometimes work out with “I CAN” but it works flawlessly all the time.
So if you want to know your “real potential” , just say “I CAN” for everything you want to do whether its becoming a doctor,becoming a pilot, learning bicycle, getting your love , starting your own company . You will be amazed to see the magic and your real potential.
“Your ‘I can’ is more important than your I.Q”
