“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.” Bo Bennett
Eliminating the word “can’t” from our vocabulary is vital to the development of strong leadership. We have all heard someone say, and perhaps said ourselves, “it can’t be done.”
The limitations built around this word paralyze the growth and development of God’s people: individually and collectively.
How many avoid the opportunity to teach a class, preach a sermon, lead a prayer, take a mission trip, help someone in need, or stretch their education by using the word – “can’t.”
Instead of shackling ourselves with these limitations, consider the difference made by realizing what can be done. With God, all things are possible.
The way we see our families, the church, the world, and even ourselves takes on a new perspective when we realize what we can do.
We must never approach our development as Moses; “who am I that I should go and deliver this people?”
Instead, we need the Isaiah syndrome; “Here am I, send me.”
Remember, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
