Manifest Your Dreams Publicity Blog
In fifth grade, I had the privilege of graduating the DARE program where a Police Officer would come in an talk to us about drugs every so often. I remember at the end of the “Kinder-Training”, we wrote our “can’ts” down on paper and BURIED THEM!
I still have that white piece of paper that Officer Joseph R. Steenbergen from the St. Charles Police Department gave us at the end of class. It reads like this:
Can’t is the worst word that’s written or spoken;
Doing more harm here than slander and lies;
On it many a good spirit broken.
And with it many a good purpose dies.
It springs from the lips of the thoughtless each morning
And robs us of courage we need through the day:
It rings in our ears like a timely sent warning
And laughs when we falter and fall by the way.
Can’t is the father of feeble endeavor,
The parent of terror and half hearted work;
It weakens the efforts of artisans clever,
And makes of the toiler an indolent shirk.
It poisons the soul of the man with a vision,
It stifles in infancy many a plan;
It greets honest toiling with open derision
And mocks at the hopes and the dreams of man.
Can’t is a word none should speak without blushing;
To utter it should symbol shame;
Ambition and courage it daily is crushing;
It blights a man’s purpose and shortens his aim.
Despise it with all your hatred of error;
Refuse it the lodgement it seeks in your brain;
Arm against it as a creature of terror,
Can’t is a word that is foe to ambition,
An enemy ambushed to shatter your will;
Its prey is forever the man with a mission
And bows but to courage and patience and skill.
Hate it, with hatred that’s deep and undying,
For once it was welcomed ’twill break any man;
Whatever your goal you are seeking, keep trying
And answer this demon by saying, “I CAN.”
… Maybe this is why I have such a hard time giving up on my goals. I have big dreams and encourage others to do the same. I remove “I Can’t” from my vocabulary every second I get. If you’re ambitious, you owe it to yourself to also remove, “I Can’t” from your vocabulary. If you’ve lost sight of your dreams, you’ve said I CAN’T too much!
