Can you do it? Yes You Can!

Can we do it?  Yes we can!  Those phrases are repeated every morning during our entire school year. Little three and four year old children learn the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make.  Heidi and I try to make learning fun.  So with each new school year, the children learn to move their arms as we shout 'YES WE CAN'.  It's important to be motivated and have fun while learning.

This can also be applied to us older students.  As I journey along to a healthier lifestyle, I need motivation to keep going. And I need HOPE that I can do it.  Yes I can!

I love to watch the TV show "Extreme Weight Loss". Chris Powell is such an amazing motivator and fitness expert.  By the way, Chris and his family live in my neck of the woods: Phoenix, Arizona.

Chris added a comment to this photo on one of his Pinterest boards.  Can you guess what he wrote?
"Today is your day!  You can do this!"
Here are a few additional motivational tips from Chris Powell's Pinterest boards.

Pinterest
I'm always saying this.  One day at a time.  One step at a time.  It's often a moment by moment choice.

Pinterest
So when my alarm clock goes off, I rise with enthusiasm.  At least that's what I tell myself.  My husband has index cards with positive affirmations written on them.  He shared that one with me.  Zig Ziglar used to call his alarm clock an 'opportunity clock' in his talks.

I try not to engage my brain too much as I get dressed in my workout clothes and hop on my treadmill.

By the time, I'm finished with my exercise session, I'm singing along with Mandisa and TobyMac to the Good Morning song.


So ...can you do it?

Let's say it loudly and with some conviction.

YES I CAN!

I'm linking up with Kim of Just for Clicks for Weigh-In Wednesday.
Blessings and love,

oh Debbie you have no idea how much I needed this little pep talk this morning. I am soo weary with some medical issues I am dealing with and the doc I saw yesterday (not my reg doc thank goodness) was so cold, uncaring, and matter of fact I left there and cried my way home. If people only knew sometimes how important it really is to encourage and tell people just that....you CAN do this! And with the power of Jesus, yes we can! Hope you have a good day!

Kim | Just For Clicks Blog said...

Love the attitude Debbie! Good music is definitely a great way to get going. It's all in the way we choose to look at life.... Can we do it? YES WE CAN. :-) Thanks for linking up!!!!

You inspire so many with your words of encouragement...We all need hope and it's so freely given if only we will receive...

Susan Stilwell said...

I always love some Mandisa! Great post, Debbie. Those kids are blessed to have you pouring encouragement into them :)

Great way to reframe thinking--and my thinking needs some work! Love it.

I need hubby to join me in reading this...he is frustrated over the pictures of himself from Rome. Zig Ziglar was from our neck of the woods. I am going to remember that on the clock..I don't set an alarm, but these days I am not enjoying getting going so early in the morning!
