Alan Stein- Don't Say You Can't

As some of you know, I am not averse to peppering in four letter words on occasion. But the absolute worst 4 letter word in the English language is ‘can’t.’

‘Can’t’ is disempowering. ‘Can’t’ slows progress. ‘Can’t’ stunts success.

If you want to be successful, on or off the court, you need to eliminate ‘can’t’ from you vocabulary when referring to things you have 100% control over… such as attitude, effort, and focus.

Don’t tell me you ‘can’t eat breakfast because you’re not hungry.’

Or you ‘can’t make 300 shots a day because you don’t have someone to rebound for you.’ 

Or you ‘can’t do another pull-up because your arms are tired.’

We both know that is BS! You can always do more than you think you can.

Instead, just be honest with yourself, and say ‘won’t.’
