Whether you think you can or can't, you're right


When encountering challenges or working towards your dreams, the outcome is essentially determined – and driven – by your mentality. This means the way in which you think of a situation will influence the result. Therefore, you should always approach – or at least attempt – situations with a ‘can do’ mentality.

Incorporating such a mentality isnt straight forward for everyone. Thus, in order to employ a ‘can do’ mentality, you must let go of the fear in failure. Instead, see failure as an opportunity to improve, and a learning point for your next move. In other words, we all take L’s, but it’s up to you to determine whether that L is a lesson or a mere loss.

A major rule for success is to dismiss the thought that you can’t. This is because negative notions such as doubt or hesitation can poison your ability to become persistent – a key ingredient to achieving success.

In some situations, it is difficult to foresee a positive outcome, but nonetheless possible. However, there are always opportunities to turn ‘cant’s’ into ‘cans’. Below are a few suggestions:

  • Stay organised
  • Use daily checklists (even small tasks will prove beneficial in time)
  • Make time to work towards your goals
  • Give yourself regular feedback and insights, and ask people for alternative perspectives

Ultimately, Ford’s quote addresses the power of the mind. Therefore, next time you have a goal or a challenge in front of you, the outcome will truly be determined by whether you think you can or can’t.
