Not to sure were to put this
. But I find in inspiring & thought others may too, so thought Id try here. If not appropriate Im sure it will be moved.

It has been writen by a man called Andy Flemming, creative director for an add here in Aust'. Australians may know as its writen for an ad for one of our large banks & read buy Toni Collete
. I dont like the bank ( or any banks) but this is not the topic of the thread. There is no known copyright as they have it up in a PFD to print out and have yourself a copy so Im sure its fine to share it here.

I just like the inspiring words: which Ill be printing out & sticking it on the fridge

There’s a four lettered word
As offensive as any
It holds back the few
Puts a stop to the many.
You can’t climb that mountain
You can’t cross the sea
You can’t become anything you want to be.
He can’t hit a century
They can’t find a cure.
She can’t think about leaving or searching for more.
Because Can’t is a word with a habit of stopping
The ebb and the flow of ideas
It keeps dropping
itself where we know in our hearts it’s not needed
And saying “don’t go” when we could have succeeded.
But those four little letters
That end with a T
They can change in an instant
When shortened to three.
We can take off the T
We can do it today
We can move forward not back
We can find our own way.
We can build we can run
We can follow the sun
We can push we can pull
We can say I’m someone
Who refuses to believe
That life can’t be better
With the removal of one
Insignificant letter.
