I was watching this kid on T.V today that has no legs and yet here he is winning medals for swimming. He also runs daily on his prosthetic legs and that got me thinking. How many of us fail to achieve our true potential by simply uttering the words "I Can't"?

What I want each of my readers to do is to remove the words "I Can't" from their vocabulary and instead substitute the question "How can I...?"

This works for most anything. How can I lose weight? How can I become debt free? How can I learn another language? You get the point.

By asking that one simple question, your mind will be forced to think of your goal as an actual possibility and will begin to provide you with the answers or at the very least a general idea as to where to find the answers that will lead you to your goal.

The next thing I want my readers to do is this. Once you have your answer, take out a piece of paper and clearly trace out all the steps that will take you from where you are now to where you want to be. What do you need to do to achieve your goal?

Next, and this is the hard part, take a step in the direction of your goal. It can be a small step but all journeys start with a first step. Your journey to fulfilling your goal is the same. This is not the time for excuses, you can no longer say "I Can't". Your path is clearly marked by you, all you have to do is start.
