Some days even undertaking routine chores can seem like climbing a mountain. If so, don’t give up. Instead, say I can do. Be strong. Encourage yourself to take the steps to keep moving forward. You’ll find yourself heartened, and able to accomplish all you need to do with strength and freedom.  



In life, we all have things to do that we may not like, or think we can’t do. It may be doing housework, driving in peak traffic, or undertaking a task where self-doubt is undermining our motivation to take the steps to complete it. Whichever it is, saying I can do encourages us to get active, be resolute and go forward with determination.


At one time a high school music student faced a mountain-like task. She had to learn and pass 3 years of music theory in one year to have it count for her HSC. Dismayed, she told her mother, “I’m too far behind. I can’t do it”. Her mother said, “There’s no such word as can’t. There’s a divine Mind helping you. Don’t give up. Let’s keep the high goal uppermost in thought rather than counting the steps to reach it. You know that passing this exam is desirable, and your expectation of achieving a good result will help speed your progress. Be confident. Have faith and believe. Say I can do this.” So the student believed and worked hard. She completed all the theory learning in the one year. And, she passed the final exam with honours.  



- Have faith. The task may seem mountainous to you, but don’t let discouraging thoughts rob you of your ability and determination to succeed. Nothing is impossible. Believe that you can accomplish the good you hope for.  Say I can do it. “Everything is possible for the person who has faith." Bible. Mark 9:23  

- Stop saying I can’t, or I don’t want to. Don’t procrastinate. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. You’ve been created an I can do person. You have tons of get-up-and-go. Exercise it!

- Be confident. You’ve been given the ability and freedom to undertake and complete every life-task successfully. “Whatever it is your duty to do, you can do without harm to yourself.” Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health p.385   

- Be open to new opportunities and challenges at home, work or school. Take them on. Look at every situation with enthusiasm. You can accomplish all you need to. Say I can do. It’s good for your health.
