Do You Stop Success with “I Can’t Because” Thinking?

Do you stop Success with “I Can’t Because” Thinking?

 

Do you stop success with “I can’t because” thinking? I have. Repeatedly. I watch other people stop their success because the say “I can’t.”

I can’t because I am too busy.
I can’t because I am too tired.
I can’t because I don’t have enough time.
I can’t because I don’t have enough money.
I can’t because I don’t have the opportunities of others.
I can’t because I am afraid people won’t like me.
I can’t because I will be too visible.
I can’t because I don’t have the skills.
I can’t because I don’t know how.
I can’t because I don’t have the talent.
I can’t because I don’t have the contacts necessary
I can’t because I don’t know how to “sell.”
I can’t because I am a professional.
I can’t because I don’t have enough education.
I can’t because I don’t have organizational skills.
I can’t because I don’t know how to start and run a business.
I can’t because I don’t have the start up costs.
I can’t because I don’t have enough confidence.
I can’t because I don’t trust myself.
I can’t because I don’t trust the Universe to provide with opportunity, people, and anything else I need.
I can’t because I don’t have enough experience.
I can’t because I am not old enough.
I can’t because I am too old.
Shall I go on?

When you utter the words “I can’t.” you absolutely shut the door to success. Success is now impossibility. There is no way forward from the position of I can’t.

I have seen people I love and respect absolutely stop progress forward with that sentence, which they believe wholeheartedly. When you believe it that fundamentally, you never ask another question, you never move anywhere. Essentially you have placed your feet in concrete and it has dried, anchoring you where you are.

Sometimes you don’t say it to your self, or to others, but it is implied in your behavior. This came home to me recently. A self improvement program that I was listening to suggested I be very specific about what I wanted money for. Then it asked me to figure how much money I needed.

I spent 65 years having written out goals and but never attaching a dollar figure to it. When I did, I suddenly said, that is doable. I know people in my life who make that amount of money. I can too. I wanted to visit my children 3 times a year and pay all my own costs for hotel, flights, taxies and meals. I wanted to visit family and friends that I care about without worrying about fund.

Within one month, I made travel plans to visit friends in Oregon, and my daughter begged me repeatedly to come visit her. When I bought the tickets, I felt like a million bucks. And this was in a month when I had a huge unexpected cost, I was about to retreat into “I can’t make it through this month because I don’t have enough money”

Suddenly I said to myself. “Same old thinking. What if? What if I decided to say instead, “how can I receive more money?”

Within two days I had four jobs that gave me more expendable income than I had had the prior couple of months. Before I received those jobs, I made the decision to visit a friend about five hours south of me. I talked to her, looked up the train fare, and got a deal round trip for half price. I purchased the tickets, and didn’t worry. Then the jobs came in.

Then my daughter begged me to come, and I opened to the possibility of planning a trip to see her. She wanted me to come for a week!

In my prior mindset, I thought of myself on a restricted income which did not allow me the freedom to plan a vacation or a visit to my children unless special circumstances happened. It was a much more subtle version of “I can’t.” I am astounded to look back at this month which I thought was originally severely restricted in funds, and see that I have met all my needs, and had more than enough surplus. I had the money to buy the tickets at times when costs were significantly lower. I had more than enough money to hostess my brother and sister-in-law when they came for a visit earlier this week.

I was busier than I have been in a long time. I got healthier, my energy was enhanced, and I contributed more to my community. Today I am about to leave on that trip to see friends tomorrow and I have a presentation to make tonight. Lots to do. A great opportunity to say “I can’t write this blog entry because I don’t have enough time. But the truth is that writing enriches me. So I chose to write.

There’s a secret to turning this “I can’t” around. You begin to ask “I wonder” instead.

We are living in a powerful time. It is intense. It is fast paced. It is challenging. But it holds immense ripeness for us to make internals shifts of our thinking. We are being called to rise to our very best, and there is support for us to make these transformations. You definitely won’t do it, if you say “I can’t.”

I wonder how I can rise to my best in this really uncomfortable situation? I’d really like to get revenge for being treated with such disrespect. What other options might there be? I wonder how I could use my anger to make forward action with wisdom?

Reality completely shifts in that moment. You suddenly have access to a much broader field of possibilities. Inspiration will come to you. Angels will brush your thought.

You don’t need to process long and hard, all you need to do is ask “I wonder how I can do this differently?” I guarantee the Universe will meet you and support you if you ask for guidance and support.

What You Intend to Give

Friday, August 02nd, 2013

What you intend to give is vital to your success. Today I found a quote of Napoleon Hill that refers to the key.

“Somewhere in your make-up (perhaps in the cells of your brain) there lies sleeping, the seed of achievement which, if aroused and put into action, would carry you to heights, such as you may never have hoped to attain.” (Napoleon Hill)

If you follow the Law of Attraction work, very little is written about what you will contribute to the world. There is a lot of focus about what you want to receive and how to magnetize it. The whole paradigm shifts when you begin thinking of the sleeping genius inside you which needs to make your contribution in the world.

Napoleon Hill in the second chapter of Think and Grow Rich gave a formula about how to turn DESIRE for riches into its financial equivalent. Step one is to decide in your mind the exact amount you desire. Step two is “Determine exactly what you intend to give for the money you desire. (There is no such reality as something for nothing)” he says.

Generativity is a stage of psychological development where we ask what it is that we are giving to the world. I just had a birthday that marked my entry through that threshold, asking the question. Yesterday I attended a wedding of two thirty somethings. It was beautiful and simple.

Three families gathered in a park overlooking the waters of Puget Sound, surrounded by farm, mountains and water. The families biked to the celebration where simple blueberries and fresh vegetables were served. Golden flags and ribbons anointed the bicycles.

A procession from the old farmhouse invited all to hold hands and sing love songs as we circled down the hill through the hand made arch to seating arranged in an oval. The bride wore a gown worn originally by her grandmother and two other brides. It was an old fashioned wedding.

Back at our community building, the reception was held with handmade decorations, and food was made by the loving hands of families and friends.

My son told me recently of how many weddings he attended, and how much he did not like them. I was sharing a few of his feelings, as I wandered among many people I did not know.

As I reflected upon the days events, I realized I was looking through eyes that asked, ‘what did I receive’? The true question needed to be ‘What did I contribute?” to this wedding.

My presence and participation contributed. My energy contributed. My blessing of their marriage contributed. My well wishes for a happy and life long marriage contributed.

On my birthdays, as a single parent, I realized the importance of celebrating for myself, or I would always feel alone. From that legacy, it is always easy to look first at where I am lonely, instead of where I am full.

This birthday my roommate took me to a wonderful Chinese restaurant where we had fabulous food. But the highlight of my day was not the presents that I received. The absolute joy of my day was when she opened my presents to her for her birthday.

I spent very little money, but lots of energy thinking about what she might enjoy. (She was out of the country for her birthday so we made my birthday into a double celebration. For a month, I would ask the question of myself, what would she like? I kept finding little things that she needed (like a clear bait box I found in my storage unit that once it was cleaned up would be perfect for her lovely earrings).

She had asked for a hand made card. I took a picture of our front door and made a small watercolor painting with a Gaelic greeting: Ceud Mile Failte “a thousand welcomes” done in her favorite colors.

The few days before my birthday, I was so focused on finishing the painting for her, that I forgot what I had already wrapped in tissue paper, and placed in her Happy Birthday Bag. For $7.99, I had synchronistically found a brand new dress at Value Village that I felt she would love. She fell in love with it, modeled it for me, and she looked tall and graceful, feminine, very festive. It was golden embroidered with brown, with alternating panels in her favorite colors. Her favorite activity is to browse at Value Village which is a second hand store.

On my birthday evening, I wrote in my journal of the wealth that I have. I was so full from the joy of giving and having it received. I probably spend no more than $15.00 total for my friend’s birthday.

Jade and Tim probably spend no more $500 or so for their wedding. But hearts, tummies and hands were full of love and well being at their celebration.

So it is not money that makes us successful. It is not what we receive that makes us successful; it is in what we give of ourselves. That seed, the original design, planted in each one of us has a powerful need to contribute.

As you excavate that design from the refuse of all the clutter in your mind, your genius will arise. Look for it in the simple ways of giving. The magical ways will then find their way out into your life as well.
