The difference between ‘I can’t’ and ‘I won’t
The difference between ‘I can’t’ and ‘I won’t is just two letters but the meaning and intent is miles apart.
Saying ‘I can’t eat candy’ and you’re setting yourself up as a victim. Someone who has been forced to not eat something either by allergy, medical condition, doctor or someone telling you what to do. It assumes a passive role. That you don’t have a choice in the matter.
Saying ‘I won’t eat candy’ is something entirely different. It’s an active role. Telling the world that you have made a conscious decision to control your habits and take care over what you put into your body.
Which do you think has the best chance of success? Which says ‘I have taken control of my life and are making conscious decisions about my wellbeing?’ Which sound better when you say it out loud? I think we all know the answer to those questions don’t we?
Playing an active role in how we live our lives and the decisions we make helps us gain or regain control. It helps us exert our willpower to our own benefit and to make informed decisions about what and when we eat.
Get into the habit of using ‘won’t’ instead of ‘can’t’. It’s such a small change but can make a huge difference!
