“Do what you can with what you have where you are.”
~Teddy Roosevelt
 

can 1 |kan|

modal verb ( 3rd sing. present can ; past could |ko͝od| )

1. be able to: they can run fast | I could hear footsteps | he can’t afford it.

• have the opportunity or possibility to: there are many ways vacationers can take money abroad.

Can’t may be one of the most misused words in modern English.  Often people say that can’t do something, suggesting that it is a physical impossibility, it cannot be done; it is unachievable.  All too often I have heard people say this without even trying or making an attempt.  The truth is that what they are really saying is that they won’t.  They don’t want to try or work hard enough to make it happen.  True success never comes easy, and it is the person who is willing to struggle and strive that overcomes the obstacles to do incredible things.

“And we know it’s never simple, never easy.”

Here is the story of an incredible athlete who overcame challenges far greater than any of us ever face to accomplish things that were once though impossible and unachievable.  Her story is an inspiration to all of us, and I hope will make you question yourself before ever using the word can’t again.
