You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

You Can’t

"I can't? Drats!"

“I can’t? Drats!”

C’mon, you can’t. You cannot improve yourself. That’s just not possible.

Nor can you build better relationships with your family. Ridiculous! To think you can build bridges with the people closest to you. Come on.

You can’t learn new ideas or discover fresh ways of thinking. Who could possibly manage that? You’d have to be superhuman, surely.

Oh, and you can’t improve your performance at work. That’s not going to happen. To even contemplate developing new skills or honing your practice to eke out a 5% improvement is beyond reason.

Face it. You cannot improve. It’s simply not possible.

To believe that you can enhance your fitness just a bit or make time to do something else that you enjoy… They’re mere fairytales.

Forget about educating yourself from now on (You stopped that when you finished school, remember?). More learning will merely make your head overflow and begin leaking from your ears.

Improve your dress sense?  Forget it! Enhance your unique style? You’re kidding, right? Don’t even think about it.

All talk about personal development, seeking new opportunities, becoming more fulfilled by making a greater contribution. That can’t happen. All you can look forward to is more of the same. Improvement is… impossible.

Can you love someone more tenderly? Care more by listening more deeply and telling a little less? Of course not!

The idea that you can find greater purpose and satisfaction in your life: surely that has got to be a fiction.

Will you be able to do anything more with your waking moments than what you are doing now? Will you ever be able to form a happier outlook with more confidence and peace? All the “can’ts” in the world (and more importantly, in our head) have already given us an answer. But is it the one you and I choose to believe in? Or, is there another way? Only you and I can answer that.

What Is Your Best?

No You Can’t – Yes You Can!

How Dumb Are You?
