What I’m about to share with you could change your life. It changed mine and is at the heart of everything I do.

“Yes, I Can.”

These words, combined with the brief to back them up, must permeate everything we do.

“Yes, I Can.”

When you show up to karate class and you step on the mat, you bow to show respect and you say “Yes I Can.” You are sending a message to your subconscious that any challenge you are about to face, you can handle, and you can achieve.

“Yes, I Can.”

Every day when you go about your work, finish your tasks, embark on a new skill set, your internal dialogue must be strong. How we talk to ourselves matters, and the firm belief that anything is possible is paramount to your success.

“Yes, I Can.”

This is how you approach life. This is how you approach a battle. This is how you approach a goal. This is how you step up to the plate and win.

“Yes, I Can.”

Say it when you wake up. When you go to sleep. Make it part of everything you do.
