Why I Almost Never Say: “We Can’t Afford That” – Andrea Dekker

A funny thing happened to me a few days ago when I was speaking with my daughter regarding a purchase she wanted me to make for my closet.  I said to her, I can’t afford that.  Being the smart and observant teenager she is, she made this remark – “mom, don’t you always say that we shouldn’t use the words I can’t? ”  You know the only thing I could do was laugh because me being the smart mouth mommy wanted to reply,  “Oh, now you choose to remember what I say?”  Instead, I laughed because she was right and I needed the reminder.

Her words reminded me of a post I read online regarding why we shouldn’t say, “I can’t afford that.”  One of the key lessons we have learned from our readings of Think and Grow Rich is from Chapter 4: Auto Suggestion.   Your subconscious mind recognizes and acts upon ONLY thoughts which have been well-mixed with emotion or feeling. – Napoleon Hill

It is with this understanding that I am choosing to share with you another bloggers perspective on the value of our words and the connection to our thoughts.  Enjoy and feel free to share your opinions.
