I overheard a conversation this week, which started: “Well, probably we can’t, but, oh, maybe, possibly…we can.” Sounds like they got it backwards…what Zig Ziglar calls, “stinkin’ thinkin’.”
Why not start with the possible, the doable, the positive? How ’bout—“Probably we can; possibly we can’t.” It resets your thinking from negative to positive and changes your approach and your attitude.
Words are powerful. Use them to help you achieve; don’t use them to defeat yourself before you start.
