Can’t Do It Because
There are two types of mindsets when it comes to thinking of possibilities. Which one do you have?
I was on Twitter the other day and someone commented that they love Periscope, but there was something wrong with their phone, so they weren’t able to use it. My reply: “Buy a new phone.” She said, “Whoa, that’s the best advice ever.” It was just that simple.
The number of people who said to me in the beginning of Periscope that they could not use it because there was no Android app, was mind-blowing to me. To me, this was a huge opportunity for business – so buy a freaking IPhone. The investment of €500 will allow you to reach a lot of people for free.
Many of us – myself included – we often think in terms of our limitations. I have to constantly check myself to make sure I am not having that mindset. “Oh, I can’t do that because I do not have the phone.”
“It is the people who are thinking in terms of possibilities that are winning.”
The people who are thinking in terms of limitations, that they can’t do it, or maybe do not have to do it, are the people who are losing.
Think in terms of possibilities instead of limitations and your life will never be the same.
