Eliminating the word “can’t” from our vocabulary is vital to the development of strong leadership. We have all heard, “It can’t be done.”
Bo Bennett said, “Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.”
The limitations built around the word “can’t” 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 improve 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 we can do it.
We must not approach our development as Moses, “Who am I that I should go and deliver this people?”
Instead, we need more with the Isaiah syndrome, “Here am I, send me.”
Remember, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
