Inspirations by Janet: Believe You Can!
By Janet Izzo
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way you are right.” ~ Henry Ford
Evidently, Henry Ford believed in positive thinking. He had a minimal education and was raised on a farm without great financial assets, but he had huge aspirations as we all know. He invented the first assembly line in manufacturing history and, of course, some of the first automobiles. Henry Ford must have believed that “he could.”
Do we go through life doubting our potential? Do we “jinx” ourselves by negative thoughts? Do we think we are too old, too fat, too poor, too limited in our abilities to set new goals for ourselves? Is there no hope for us?
In the movie, “The Secret,” we learn that “What we think about we bring about.” Our thoughts are powerful! “The Secret” teaches that “We are the creators of our own destiny. No one else can live our story or sing our song or dance our dance.” It councils us to “Follow your bliss, and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way you are right!”
So now when a great new idea occurs to you, run with it! Just think that you can and see what happens! And have a great week!
