Your I Can is More Important Than Your Iq

The Robin Sharma quote, “Your I can is more important than your IQ” is best illustrated by this simple fact:

Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but nobody told the bumble bee that so it just goes around its daily business the quickest way it knows. Flying!

That should be all the proof you need, to know that your true potential in life is only restricted by your own personal beliefs.

It’s a well known fact that all the great achievers of our time have produced amazing results in their lives purely because of their beliefs and attitude.

They had no more opportunities, wisdom or Luck than you or I have.

What they had was an “I can attitude" to overcome all the obstacles they came up against and the ability to ignore all the people who said it couldn’t be done!

“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who’s doing it!” (Chinese proverb)

We are all born with the "I can attitude" but unfortunately as we grow and begin to learn, our brains are reprogrammed by parents, grandparents and even our teachers.

How many times have you been told by somebody else, “I wouldn’t do that if I were you” or “You can’t do that” and the worst one of all, “Stop dreaming!”

Once the seed of doubt has been planted, it is very difficult to get rid of and as hard as you try to ignore other people’s opinions, once you let them into your head, they will still be lurking somewhere in the depths of your subconscious ready to re-appear just when you’re about to step out and start that new project you’ve been wanting to do, or even make that big move that will change your life forever.

Don’t let other people steal your dreams!

Your dreams are your dreams and nobody can take them away from you or stop you achieving great things in your life unless you let them!

The next time somebody tries to tell it can’t be done tell them about the bumblebee and remember that all things are possible for those of us who truly believe that all things are possible.

If you truly believe you can do something you will most certainly triumph and achieve great things in your life, but you have to really believe in your abilities and believe you will succeed and most importantly, not let anybody else tell you any different.

Remember the bumblebee and don’t let anybody tell you it can’t be done.

You’ll never know how high you can fly till you spread your wings and reach for the sky!

Thanks for the reminder that "I CAN" matters so much.

i like your article Alan because there seems to be more killers of dream than builders of dreams. Parents can sometimes be killers of their children's dreams without being aware

You're absolutely right Geoffrey Unfortunately there are more people willing to squash your dreams than give you support and help to achieve them especially when we are children and I have to sometimes even pull myself up and think before I answer my own children so that I give them the support they need and help them learn to fly!
