Project 52 - Week #3

"If you think you can or you can't, either way you are right."

-Henry Ford


This is one of my all time FAVORITE quotes. In fact, when the kids get a little older I am going to put it up in huge vinyl letters on their walls. I want my kids to believe in themselves. I know that they can do anything... all they have to do is have confidence in their own abilities and strengths. Like the Little Engine that Could, "I think I can, I think I can..." has been my motto for the past few months. I can do this, I can handle this, I can {fill-in-the-blank}.

Don't sell yourself short. When faced with scary or intimidating situations, just tell yourself "I can" and you will! It's really that easy. If you start something thinking only about failure then you doom yourself to failure. Ever heard of a 'self-fulfilling prophecy'? This is what Henry Ford is trying to tell us. It's all about our attitudes. So, this week face your challenges KNOWING that you can. It's amazing what a slight change in your attitude will do. Trust me, I've been trying it out and I can't believe the things that I can accomplish and get through just by having a positive, "I can do this" attitude.

What are some challenges that you've overcome, or feats you've accomplished just by 'thinking you could'?

One step at a steps if you have to. You are a giant missy!

Oh wait...I didn't say how amazing this picture is. Each time I think you can't possibly top the last but alas, each week you color me wrong.
