You can do what you have to do, and sometimes you can do it even better than you think you can.  Jimmy Carter

“I can’t” is one of the most limiting things we can say because a Universal Power mirrors back to us whatever we predominantly believe. In psychology it’s called “the self-fulfilling prophecy.” In sales and success training it’s taught as the power of positive thinking. In our spiritual practice we know that whatever we believe to be true, the universe says yes to and creates for us.

“Yes, I can,” on the other hand, is one of the most powerful affirmations we can say because then the Universal Law mirrors back opportunity and possibility. Believe that you can, and you are much more likely to move forward in pursuit of your dreams and the abundant life you desire. You can imagine a greater good in your life. You can allow Spirit to support you. You can set your feet in the direction of your goals. You can learn what you need to learn. Yes, you can do it, and Yes, you can have it.

Spiritual Contemplation: Where is your belief in “I can’t” limiting you or holding you back? How would things change if you believe “Yes, I can”?

Affirmation: Yes I can, because a Power and Presence within me knows what to do and how to do it. Yes, I can!
