Photo *Heart* Fridays – Yes You Can!

I can

He sat down and completed almost half of the chinese writing workbook without any prompting. I had to tell him to go easy on his handwriting practice. He exclaimed, “I can do some more, because I like to do difficult things, it is boring when it is easy!”

I wish I can have this same attitude when I face all challenges. Many times when I tell myself I can’t do a certain thing, I will likely end up not being able to do it.

Is it really so easy? Say you can and you will do it. Say you can’t and you will not be able to do it.

Well just this year, I have proven to myself that by simply believing that I can, I dove right in, forged right ahead, learning and making changes as I went. But not without following God’s leading, as only He can make it happen.

With every challenge that comes our way, the biggest obstacle for us is a ‘can’t do’ attitude. Everything can be overcome when you believe you can. It may take lots of hard work, obstacles to cross, battles to fight, mountains to climb but it is possible, just start, by believing you CAN.

“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t – you’re right ” – Henry Ford
