One of my favorite quotes showing the power of your thoughts is by Henry Ford who said,
“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t you’re right”
It’s quite profound really.
If you are 100% certain that there is no way you can get your charts done by the end of the day, or you are sure that you can’t be happy in medicine, be careful, because you might just be right.
If you have even the slightest glimmer of hope, then this blog, podcast, and retreats may really serve you.
Because we are going to focus on what you can do.
Not what you can’t.
We are going to focus on where you have power.
Not where you don’t.
See, it’s all about where we choose to focus our attention.
It’s so simple that it shows up in children’s books, like The Little Engine that could. The little train just keeps telling himself, “I think I can, I think I can.” He purposefully focuses his attention over and over and over on things how he thinks he can do it.
Your thoughts can defeat you or empower you before you ever even get started.
Note even the slightest difference between
“I hope I can, and I might”
“I know I can, and I will”
So, I’ll ask, can you make your life a little bit better? Is there hope? Can you do this?
Let’s hope you will get to a place you can answer, “I know I can and I will.”
Because then you are determined to find a way, no matter what.
You know you can and you will.
I know you can too.
