My oldest son and his wife (pictured below with my wife and I) recently moved to North Carolina, and on Monday he shared an inspiring five minute audio clip with me that he was introduced to at a church they were visiting. It has a powerful message that reminded me of something I had written a while back that is a very relevant topic for all of us as we start a new year. Now you may have seen something like this before, but this is my own spin on it, and we all need to be reminded of this from time to time.
Three words for Success in 2015!
As my children were growing up they loved playing sports, especially soccer. I was fortunate enough to be able to coach the teams that they played on, and I had to remind them in the beginning of every season of the three words that I hate and would not tolerate them using. I would tell them, “To accomplish your goals and to be victorious, you must eliminate these three words from your vocabulary: can’t, won’t and don’t.”
Never say I can’t, I won’t, and I don’t because can’t never could, won’t never will , and don’t never did accomplish anything.
Replace those three words with: Can, Will, and Did. Say YES I can, I will, and when your goals are met, you can proudly say I did.
Better yet, for an even greater level of success, don’t go it alone, ask someone to hold you accountable and to encourage you along the way. Then you can say YES, we can, we will, and when your goals are met you can proudly say we did it.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
I am sure many of you have made resolutions for 2015. You have set goals for the things you want to accomplish in this New Year. Well I want to encourage you today to eliminate those three words from your vocabulary. You can keep your resolutions, you can accomplish your goals, and you can be victorious in 2015. I believe you can and you will do it.
May God bless you with a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2015, and if you need help setting and/or making your health goals a reality in 2015, please fill out the contact information by clicking here or click on the ask Dr. Phil microphone on the homepage of our website to leave me a voice message.
