Why not? Why can’t things start looking better instead of worse? Why can’t I get that promotion at work? Why can’t I teach my kids to pick up their socks? Why can’t I start treating myself better? What if “Why not?” is because you don’t believe it can? I am not saying that ALL you have to do is believe; there is most likely a component of hard work involved in whatever you want to have happen. And I am saying that it is important to do the hard work AND to believe that it can pay off in the end. Believing that something can happen won’t make it happen, but it may make it more likely to happen.
