The Little Engine That Could

Do you ever ask or say to yourself:

- I wish I could

- When is this going to get better?

- This has to change

Truth is, it won’t change till YOU change. It all starts with the inside – the way you think, the way you feel, the way you act. All of your habits and beliefs are like a steel frame beyond which you cannot grow.

Do you remember the story “The Little Engine That Could”? The message is not just for kids. Us adults just have really good excuses to justify why we can’t do something. And those are very good excuses: The economy is not doing well, I’m going through a divorce, my kids are little and I have no time, etc…. Those are all valid reasons, but all of them can be overcome. So let’s change the narrative from “I wish I could” to “I know I can and I will find a way.”

Any successful person will tell you that they didn’t let obstacles stop them from pursuing their goals, their dreams, their vision. They didn’t want to wish away the rest of their lives, they made a committed decision to go after their dreams.

Napoleon Hill actually dedicates a whole chapter on decision for that reason in his book Think and Grow Rich. Successful people focus on the solution rather than obstacles, simply because they have made a committed decision to pursue their goals, to create the life they want, and they KNOW they can. More often than not, we procrastinate, we let the fear of the unknown or the fact that we don’t know HOW to make it happen stop us from starting. And there die our dreams. When we switch from “I wish I could” to “I know I can”, we actually allow our dreams to expand.

So what if you could do what you really wanted? What would that look like?

What would your life look like? If you thought it were possible, what would you love to do? These are the questions you want to ask yourself. Too often we settle, we limit our dreams, we choose to deal with the set of cards we have been handed without realizing we have the power to change it. Yes, we cope, but that’s not living. Living is creating. What if your story could inspire and empower many other families? What if your journey was just something more meaningful than your own?

Take the time to reflect and ask yourself: If I could, what would I love? Do not allow any limitations, obstacles limit your dreams. Then it’s a just as matter of deciding you WILL make it happen!
