I Can vs I Can’t. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing a motivating concept on the I can vs I can’t phase. I believe that two words are the driving force behind your personally achieving your outcome and your WHY in Life. These two words are the most powerful words you can ever speak to yourself about any situation. “CAN” and “CAN’T”. As I’ve said many times, “CAN” is a word of power, whereas “CAN’T” is a word of retreat.
I Can Vs I Can’t
You have the power to decide if you wish to ACHIEVE or RETREAT. When you speak victory words such as “I CAN”, you will attain whatever you set out to do regardless of what others say to you—many famous entrepreneurs worldwide, such as Ray Kroc, Fred Astaire, Walt Disney and Dick Clark. I can attest that if you spoke with each of them individually, they would tell you that at the beginning of their journey. Most people told them you CAN’T do that! Fortunately, they disregarded these statements and listened to their inner voice, which said, “Oh yes, I CAN!”
The key in life is to realise the most crucial person who speaks to you every day is you on the inside! You need to review your WHY in Life and see if you are on track toward achieving your WHY, Or are you on a detour because someone told you, “You CAN’T do that, so stop dreaming and just forget about it!” As a personal mindset builder, you need to speak to your inner person and say, “Today, I will take another productive stride!”
Each morning, I visualise myself winning. My outcome for each day is to build a community of people who we can inspire and motivate all of us to make the world a better place to live. I have to admit if it was not for my inner person saying, “Sonia, you CAN do it! YOU CAN do it!” I may not be in the position of success that I am today. Some days it is still difficult, but guess what — we ARE doing it!
I am very proud and appreciative of the people who have stepped up to the plate and made individual contributions of talent and time.
In summary, you need to ask yourself a sincere question, “Am I listening to my victory words from the inside, or am I letting the outer defeat (loser) words control my outcome in life?”.
I hope you enjoyed that.
WHat a useful post. So much in our life depends on our mindset.

I like how you say it. Achieve or retreat sounds cool and I agree we can decide. This is an inspiring post!
Yep! I can’t is much different from I won’t. And I can is everything!
Ah yes! We have to speak positivity and possibility into our lives and whatever we do. That’s the only way we can do anything!
Positivity and a good attitude and really change your day! Thank you for sharing 🙂
There’s a huge difference between these words. I choose to reframe my mindset with “I can”
Such a wonderful article to read, it’s very informative and a morale booster! I totally love reading this kind of article that will contribute to my well-being. Thanks for sharing this with us!
This got me motivated. Thanks so much for sharing.
I’m going to my inner person and say, “Today, I will take another productive stride!” Inspired!
If we have a good mindset and can-do attitude, definitely we will achieve our goals. And if we choose to fail, we should embrace the lesson it gives, move on and try again.
Yes! So much of life depends on our mindset. Thinking positively can really help!
This is a very insightful post. We have to be mindful of our words and outlook.
This is such a great post. Sometimes we can be our own enemy especially when we get stuck in our head. It’s definitely important to visualize what we want out of our day, out of our life or even out of our relationship. In my opinion, knowing what we want helps create boundaries and allow us to really focus on the task at hand.

Being your own cheerleader and personal guide is so important! You believe what you tell yourself. I also think “I can’t” can be used in moderation, though, such as when talking to others and protecting your own time by telling others no at times.
These are all great points. It’s a great roadmap for keeping “I can” directly in our sights.
