You C*NT

How many times have you told yourself you CAN’T do something?


  • You don’t have experience.
  • You don’t know how to do that.
  • It’s not how things work.
  • Who are you to do that?
  • You might fail.
  • You have a reputation.
  • You don’t have a reputation.
  • You have to take care of your brand.
  • You don’t have a brand to take care of.
  • You’re not ready.
  • You’re too small.
  • You’re too big.
  • You’re too young.
  • You’re too old.

Those are valid reasons.

However, are they really true?

Challenge Why You Can’t

1. Write one thing you’d LOVE to do or achieve, but you CAN’T and list all the reasons why not.

2. Read it out loud for yourself and ask: “Is this really true?”

3. Go to somebody you trust* and ask with curiosity: “Hey, I’ve thought of this. Do you think it’s possible/too crazy/too risky?”
