Having a “I Can” Attitude

can do

When was the last time that you declared to yourself or someone else around you out loud that “I can”?  It is not something we commonly do even though we really should be doing that each and every single day.  In fact, most people, most people (including me) tend to magnify their limitations.  People tend to focus on their shortcomings.  Obviously, we have the goal of trying to improve ourselves as people and to do that you have to address limitations you do have so you can improve them.  The problem comes when we focus solely on our limitations and fail to ever spend any time thinking about the great things each of us has inside of us.

Scripture makes is very clear that all things are possible to those who believe.  That means that it is possible to see your dreams fulfilled.  It is possible to overcome that obstacle.  It is possible to climb to new heights.  It is possible to embrace your destiny.  You may not know how it will all take place.  You may not even have a plan yet, but all you have to know is that if God said that you can…you can!

Please understand that it is not saying that all things are possible to those trying to do it alone.  We all have many gifts and there are things that we can accomplish on our own, but each of us has limitations.  We will all come to a point where we can’t do everything on our own.  It is at this point, if we let God into our lives that we can let Him take over and then through Him anything is possible.  Nothing can defeat us.  We have the Creator of the Universe in our corner so there really is nothing that can take us down.

Starting today, I want to challenge each of you (including me) to open yourself up to the possibility in your future by simply declaring this verse:

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

At the stoplight, when you are waiting in line, anytime you have a couple of free seconds, just quote this verse to yourself.  Let is sink down deeply into your heart.  As you do, God’s word will transform you from the inside out.  Faith will rise up in your heart and you will start to boldly embrace the blessings that God has in store for you in your life.

If you do this regularly, your limitations and shortcomings will fade away into the background of your thoughts.

Be a person that is known for saying “I can” and not for saying “I can’t.”

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
