The nuns used to tell us, "I can't means I won't." We didn't "get it." We would plead and cry to the nuns, "But, Sister! You just don't understand!" Oh, yes, she did. But it took a lot of us to get older before we finally "got it," ourselves . . .
The copy on the Happify's website page says, "We tend to be harder on ourselves than need be, and our loved ones know that. In fact, when asked in this social experiment what we think we can't do and how others perceive us, our family turned out to be our biggest fans. They trust us and believe in us more than we believe in ourselves! So the next time you think you can't do something, turn to your parents, kids, and friends, and ask how they see you reaching your goals."

I used to use every excuse in the book that I could come up with - until there was nothing left for me to do but put one foot in front of the other and just get out and do it. So I did . . .
Beginning on January 1, 2003, I started walking in earnest five to eight miles a day leaving 130 pounds in my wake. And I haven't looked back since - even through all my knee scopes, then two knee replacements and other foot surgeries. I have a ton of physical issues that would stop the average human in their tracks. I cannot afford to stop walking and moving.
If you think you can't - then you can't.
If you think you can, then you will . . .
