Think of something where you are saying: I CAN’T DO ____
now, notice what happens when you say: I can’t do ____ BECAUSE _ typically, a list of obstacles appear and you are tempted to walk away
now, notice what happens when you say: I CAN DO ____ IF ____ typically, a list of puzzles appear and you are tempted to find a way
- puzzles have solutions
- faced with a puzzle, the brain goes into gear to find a solution
- I can do if increases the chances of finding a way
