Weekly Taekwondo Lesson

“I am happy and content because I think I am.”

                   — Alain-Rene Lesage

It was more than twenty years ago that I first heard Zig Ziglar
give the advice that if you were bored or if you were just
sitting watching TV or some other equally life-wasting activity,
instead of doodling on a piece of paper, write a phrase like:

* I can get straight A’s
* I can make that recipe just like in the book
* I can win the Olympic gold medal
* I can write my book
* I can strike out Ichiro
* I can get down to XYZ pounds
* I can make a million dollars
* I can get her to like me
* I can do anything I can dream…

I can, over and over is one of the primary patterns required to
program your mind to learn and know how incredibly capable you
are.

When you feel frustrated, bored, depressed or afraid, you don’t
need a pill or a drink to unwind or to work up your courage.
You only need to regularly connect with your true abilities…
you need to think of them… you need to be reminded of them
constantly, which you can do effortlessly… you need to
mentally see mental movies of yourself taking care of everything
that needs to be done.

You need to see yourself as having already done what you need
and want to do.

This needs to happen automatically.

It does for the most accomplished people.

And don’t you want to continue to find ways to elevate your
status in life and in your own eyes?

You better be saying yes.

So listen to your inner chatter today… or how about for the
next hour.

Are you telling yourself you can’t?  Calling yourself bad
names?  Or other people?  Feel like giving up, escaping?  Are
you telling yourself there is nothing you can do about ____?

If so, then you are most definitely not about to find great
answers or create any great success.

I can, I can, I can.

All day today.  All day tomorrow.

Aaaaarrrrh!

People who poo poo this are the ones who are growing roots in
front of the teevee or in front of their monitor or who spend
all their “free” time down at the bar or other places to forget
about life for awhile.

I can, I can, I can.

Imagine a dream, want, desire… I can, I can, I can.

And in days, or weeks or maybe months you’ll begin to get it.
And if it takes months or even years, so what.  Life is a
process.  And it’s wise to invest time doing what you must so
you can get to do what you want.

Tis better to arrive late than to never make it at all.
