Awaken Your Day - The C Word - May 11,2010

"I am looking for alot of men who have an infinite capacity to not know what can't be done."
- Henry Ford

My first recruit is the little man now sleeping in the next room. Our 14 month old son…is right at that point in his dream creation career, where new adventures come constantly. From taking a few steps, to almost running, or conquering climbing a stool to sit all by himself with a “Ta Da” grin – watching him defy “Can’t” is …well, simply a humbling and wonderful experience.

I watch his actions, often prompted excitedly by Sandra, my wife, and at this age I am rewarded with witnessing the quick progression he has to understanding and figuring things out. His thought mechanics are beginning to turn gears in his tiny mind so much more now, and I get to share his successes in facial expressions, and his determination in repetition of a task that has peaked his interest.

Repitition…not abandonment of a task. Determination.

I admire him. For he knows nothing of this disease “can’t”. he just tries and tries again…and when he succeeds it is a wonderful treat to see this little smile turn into a beaming ray. The joy from his victory warms the whole house. And it lightens the heart to see him so sure of himself as his little walk shows a “yup I did it” confidence.

I want to go back to not knowing what can’t be done.

That is part of this journey we face when we set out on a goal. "There is nothing I cannot do in order to achieve this dream"…and somehow, when I need more inspiration than my achievements or leaders and books and motivational people can provide…when I need that like minded environment to help me keep my edge, I will sit and watch the expert, right there in the playroom…as he masters yet another curiousity…and he smiles at me…

Good Morning…and may you never know…what can’t be done.
