Get Rid of Can't and Newbie to Succeed!

Mar 18, 2008
Your mindset and your belief have more power to draw you towards success then any knowledge that you have acquired. There's this guy that makes cars, you might have heard of him, by the name of Henry Ford. He actually only had a tiny amount of formal education but he possessed a mindset that created in him a burning desire to obtain his goals. "Whether you think you can or think you can't you are right." Is one of the phrases attributed to Henry Ford and is one to take to heart.

His drive and determination took him from a non-educated worker to a leader in industry. This is the same type of mindset you need to have to succeed. This is a mindset that doesn't say, can't!

If you are constantly using the word can't you are sure to find failure. You have to believe you can before you can. I like to define can't as:

C= Conveniently.

A= Accepting.

N= Negative.

T= Thoughts

Don't accept negative thought from yourself or anybody else. You are the only one that can give up on your goals and the only one that can accept these thoughts. You will reach your goals but only if you believe you can.

Just because you haven't discovered how to do something doesn't mean you can't do it.

It doesn't mean it can't be done just because no one has done it before.

All you need to do to achieve the things you think you can't do is to create a mindset that gives you a burning desire to accomplish you goals. You can do anything you just have to figure out how.

Besides can't there is another term you should avoid and that is newbie. "I am a newbie", is probably the most commonly used excuse that I hear.

You say that being a newbie is the truth and not an excuse. Well, it might be the truth but it is almost always used as an excuse when someone says they are a newbie. Such as:

Question: Do you have a website?

Answer: I don't have one I am a newbie.

Question: What is your specialty?

Answer: I don't have one I am a newbie.

Question: Have you started building your list yet?

Answer: No, I am a newbie.

Read those questions and read those answers and you will see why I say it is an excuse. If you are in the internet marketing field you have probably heard those questions and that answer before. The answer doesn't explain anything, it just works as an excuse for people that haven't done anything yet. Yes, I did refer to myself as a newbie, way back when, but I realize now that it was an excuse that slowed down my progress to my goals.

But just being a newbie doesn't mean that you can't take action. Getting started doesn't take a lot but you have to take action in order to start.
