(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)

“What am I now doing that previously I thought I couldn’t?”

Coaching Point: This Great Question got right in my face and there’s nowhere to hide from it!

I am now doing many things I have said I couldn’t do. I was clear about them. I knew I couldn’t do them.

And yet, here I am, doing them, some really well.

So why would I have ever let my self-limiting thoughts be dominant?

I was simply unaware. I couldn’t see where I had blind spots. Of course that’s the human condition. We all have blind spots. Being open to discover them, look at them, act on them, that’s a big part of being aware and living in the Present.

The tool I’ve learned to use is to have an ‘I can’t do that’ moment serve as a trigger to ask myself, “Why not?” Then act.

What is one thing you are now doing which previously you thought you couldn’t? Can you use that to propel you through a current “I can’t”?
