I mentioned how I saw an inspiration message card in a stationary shop when I went for my job interview that said ‘I can and I will, watch me’
Out of all the motivational messages that were displayed in that stand – why did that catch my eye?
Why did it appeal to me so much, that I bought it and put it over my desk so I see it every night?
Why have I adopted it as my personal mantra so that whenever I have a tough task to repeat, I close my eyes and repeat it to myself?
“I can and I will watch me”
When I was at school I was told that I should sit limited exams because they did not think I had the ability to get good grades. I was determined to prove them wrong.
During that time my teachers predicted that I would get D’s and E’s. I was determined to prove them wrong.
When I got a dead end job I decided I wanted to better life for myself and go to University. I overheard a colleague bitching how ‘I would never do it’. I would prove him wrong.
I proved them all wrong…
And that is why the saying means so much to me – that defiance to get what I want no matter how little belief anyone else has in me
I will always think ‘I can and I will watch me’
