    No such thing as CAN’T!

    I can remember not long ago, I was screaming out to my mom after she had asked me to do something. I screamed, “I can’t do that.”

    Suddenly Silva The Genie, who was visiting us, burst into the room and stared at me. She said. “There is no such thing as ‘can’t’! Anything that you put your mind to do, you can do. You just need to learn how. I was confused and asked, “What do you mean that there is no such thing as ‘can’t’?”

    “The reason that you think that you can’t do it, is because you just don’t know how. It is like walking, talking, eating, or reading. One you try something for the first time, you simply don’t know how to do them. Once you learn how to do the task, you can no longer use that excuse. What your mother just asked you to do was not an impossible task. You simply don’t know how do it. So instead of screaming out, I can’t do it! Simply say, I don’t know how to do that, could you please show me, so next time I will be able to do it on my own.”

    I turned to my mom and said, “I can do that.” (click on link to watch video)

    I suppose that is what going to school is all about. It is about learning new things, languages, history, countries and skills so I can do better in the future.
