“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.”

Listen Now:

Featuring an iconic quote from prolific entrepreneur Henry Ford (no relation), I wanted to remind you of the power of your own expectancy. You are unconsciously influencing everything that happens around you, some people call it manifesting, and it’s important to make sure that you’re allowing yourself to be in alignment with your best self.

The quote goes “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” The simplicity of this quote suggests something fundamental. The future is yet to have occurred and it’s impossible to forecast. There often aren't right answers, there are only options that reveal themselves to be more favorable or appropriate over time.

It is within our power to influence what happens next. We are creators in that way, and it’s very exciting. But just as much as we can create the future of our dreams, we can also unconsciously create the life we're trying to avoid. A life of complacency, mediocrity, and reaction.

If you think that you can’t do something, then you’ll find all of the reasons that prove that to be the case. You’ll stack so much evidence that it will appear as if there’s no alternative, and you’ll lose sight of all other possibility and opportunity.

But similarly if you think you can do something, then you’ll start collecting all of the information that proves it right. Instead of seeing the 99 reasons why something won’t work you focus on the 1 reason it might. This helps you to be more persistent, resilient, and determined as you find a solution (until you do!)

That’s how your mindset has the power to shape your reality. Your mind will find the evidence for whatever it is you choose to believe. This evidence then affects what you’re thinking about, the way you’re thinking about it, and what actions you take in response. 

Belief leads to action, which leads to results. So if you believe that you can’t, you’ll take actions that are in line with that and you’ll get congruent results. But if you believe that you can, you’ll take a different set of productive actions that mold the world to your vision.

“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” And hopefully now you see why that’s the case, so you can start believing that you’re capable of achieving the things on your heart.

If this quote landed for you today then it certainly will do the same for someone else you care about. Share this episode with them and help themand make their dreams come true!
