I now say, "It is not a matter of can or can't-it is only a matter of will or won't"-I no longer have the excuse of physically being unable to do much of anything! It is now, as it always has been-a matter of attitude and willingness.

I too also use this phrase, and especially on my kids. I would say, remember A stands for attitude. Both my children were honour students; so now I guess it is time to say these things to myself. I CAN be my own honour student.

true because we will often put out time and energy into what we think will happen so we have to change our thought and then we can make it happen.

I used this quote all the time with my high school students who said, "I can't." I would answer, "You're right." That always got their attention and then we could talk about the influence of attitude.
