When confronted with new challenges it is not uncommon to view the task before us and declare, “I can’t do that,” because our present knowledge and/or skillset isn’t up to the task.
Unfortunately we use the words “I can’t” as though they are a permanent state of being. There was a time when I couldn’t catch a fly ball or drive a car, but that didn’t mean I lacked the ability to gain those skills.
Not being able to do something today is impermanent. You might be frustrated while you learn, but don’t convince yourself that you don’t have the capacity to augment your present skillset through study and practice.
The next time you find yourself face-to-face with something you aren’t able to do just say, “I can’t do this…yet.”
