I was talking with a colleague today, discussing someone who said that they can’t do something.

We smiled and nodded at each other.  Can’t or won’t?

The reality is that they could do it, they just chose not to.

What do you say that you can’t do?

Start a business?

Write a book?

Get fit?

Spend more time with your kids?

Let me ask you, can’t or won’t?

How long will you keep making excuses for?

How long will you place limits on your capability for?

Because when you realise that you can, it’s not a big shift to say that you will and even better, that you did.
