I recently interviewed Jason Yarusi on the podcast and he shared how he and his wife, Pili, are focused on helping their children change their words from “I can’t” to “How can I?” Great lesson for all of us!
How Can I?
I’m a glass half full guy and I would say I have a positive mindset. I believe that good will come in the future. I believe I will be successful in the goals I put my mind to. Even with all that, I still find myself saying to myself and to my kids “I can’t afford that or we can’t afford that.” What I really mean is I don’t want to spend our money in that way or on that material item. I value experiences over stuff.
Why do I share this story with you?
I think our words our powerful. Our spouse, our children, our family, our friends watch what we say and more importantly what we do. I think that shifting focus and mindset from “I can’t” to “how can I?” is an important lesson for all of us. We can choose to not spend or choose to invest for the future but I think it’s an important distinction to encourage others to think “how can I?” It may not be important to me, but it may important to them. Help others learn that they can! Help them understand they need to figure out a way to make it happen rather than have it just be given to them. How can I? What a great question for all of us to reach goals that seem out of our reach!
