Project 24: Personal and Professional Affirmations
Project 25: Developing Self-Confidence

Reminder Card: I CAN

In the previous project, Project 24, we took a deep dive into personal affirmations.  Once again it is time to capture a bit of the conversation on a small reminder card to be reviewed on a regular basis.  This time it is the I CAN card.  If I had to boil AiA down into it's most basic components it would be the three reminder cards - I AM, I CAN, and I WILL.  The original program had these three cards and three copies of the PATIENCE card - that's it for reminder cards.  I think you can tell that Bob found the three statements, I AM, I CAN, and I WILL to be the keys to creating a positive mind.  And, of course, we need Patience as we are working on this personal project.

I wish I had my very first I CAN card from 1985.  Sorry to say I can't remember what was on it but I know I have taken the concept to heart and often find myself overcoming self-doubt with a simple affirmation starting with I CAN.  

Today we might call this developing a Growth Mindset.  Perhaps that is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves throughout our lives - the knowledge that we can continue to grow until the day we die.  Right now, after a long hiatus from this blog, my I CAN affirmation tells me I CAN develop the skills needed to write something of value and I CAN be completely confident, poised, and relaxed as I move forward.

Onward and Upward!
