Why can't you?

The mind is a very powerful thing. It's the difference between Mother Teresa and Adolf Hitler. It's the difference between being a millionaire or being homeless, the difference between a life full of joy and happiness, and a life full of misery and hate. Or perhaps it was said best by John Milton...

"The mind is its own place, and in it self can make a Heaven of Hell, and a Hell of Heaven."

Luckily, we have been given the gift of free will to do whatever we wish with our minds, thoughts, and beliefs.

I'm sure when you were a kid you heard all the time "you can do anything you want if you put your mind to it." Well, this really couldn't be more true. You can do anything you want, if you believe you can. Many times people use "I can't" as an excuse to not fulfill their dreams, or simply to avoid doing things all together. The truth is not that they can't, but simply that they won't. Many will often jump to the conclusion of "I can't" before the task at hand is even tried; but behold the power of thought, the very belief of "I can't" will be proven right every time, because it is the belief that which makes it to be so. One must change the mind's perspective of what is possible before anything is possible.

"Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you are right."

-Henry Ford

You can do anything you want if you put your mind to it, and this remains true for all, no matter how old or young. Our thoughts and beliefs create our reality, and our reality is molded by our actions, yet our actions are determined by our thoughts and beliefs. So, whatever it may be that one wishes to accomplish must first be accomplished within the mind, and it will be so in one's reality.

So next time you have a goal that seems so far fetched, so out of reach, and next to impossible to accomplish, and you quick to jump the conclusion of "I can't," sit back and as yourself if you can't, or you won't...

    The mind is a very powerful thing, this could be the reason why only 10% of our brain is used. It's all in our minds.

    The mind and the brain are two different things

    This is a great thought and it is actually true. It really does matter what are you thinking, what are your thoughts and what do you beleive. It will create your actual future!

    Great post!

    The question will always be... what motivates or inspire you to go for that dream or whatever is on your mind.

    OP,

    I have a thought.
    I have thousands of thoughts.
    All of these thoughts determine my next set of thoughts.
    ad nauseum.
    How could these thoughts, considering the endless loop,
    effect the ability to be able to do or not to do?
    This is what bothers me.
    It all comes down to choice.
    and choice requires thought.
    To me, not as simple as can you or will you.

    Nice to meet you,too,Daniel

    Was referring to my thoughts consistently multiplying, being greater than the one thought.

    I have read Hill. and the secret. and countless others.

    The usual rhetoric tells me" It doesn't work, because you don't believe it works"

    Not true. I am sure it works. My mind can be turbocharged high powered engine with nitrous boost, or a sputtering not firing on all cylinders bogged down slug. No in between.

    Sorry about the vague Colorado/Washington State reference, ignore it,I will leave it at that.

    I have really tried meditation as well, with little success.

    Can't or Won't does not factor in

    Anyone who is quoting Henry Ford and Napoleon Hill is on the right track. It is important to understand that our "subconcious mind" which runs 24-7 only "plays" (like a movie) what we allow it to play. We control, if we choose, the movie that is playing. It also does not know the difference between what is real or false and the concious mind will gravitate towards the manifestation of what the subconcious believes to be true.

    Suggestion--read "You Were Born Rich", by Bob Proctor

    Just my take
