Tuesday Attitude: Get a leg up on your goals.

The use of “can’t” is a pre-emptive strike to accept defeat, thereby reducing (if not erasing) the amount of effort expected and/or required to achieve a goal (as in, “can’t” kip or lift heavy or resist sugar cravings or get the clean movement or do double unders or squat deep or climb the rope or run fast or jump high or move flexibly or pushup off knees or flip the tire). The barriers of “can’t” are built in the mind (ok, “can’t lived on won’t street.”). Oddly enough, so are the opportunities, freedom, and actualization of “Improvise, Adapt, Overcome.”
