We’ve mentioned many times before about ‘The C Word’.


The worst word there is.




It’s a word that falsely limits us.


We’re taught from a young age to use it.


To say “I can’t do that”.


And we end up doing it all the time.


All of us.


“I can’t eat healthily when I’m away with work”


“I can’t afford to join the XYZ”


“I can’t do it as I don’t have time”


Whatever the justification, there is a very easy way to see if it’s true or not.


Ask yourself “Would I do it if a loved one’s life depended on it?”


If a doctor told you “If you don’t eat healthy when you’re away with work your child will die immediately.”


Or “If you can’t find £X a month your other half will pop their clogs.”


Sound extreme, sure.


But it helps us see through the self limiting belief! (a big thing we help our ninjas with – see myrise.co.uk/briefing-meeting if you want to learn more about what we do)


Would you go and say your goodbyes?


Or would you work out a way to make it happen?


If it’s the latter, it’s possible.


“Can’t” goes out of the window.


It becomes a case of “How?”


You’d find the time, money, way, etc somehow.


You might decide it’s not worth the effort.


That’s cool.


Tis your life.


There’s tonnes of stuff we all decide not to do because it’s not worth the effort.


But we could do it.


So, whatever your reason for not doing something……


Ask yourself if you’d do it if a loved ones life depended on it.


And if so, how?


And that’s your answer.



Much love,
