DITCH YOUR “I CAN’T” MENTALITY!

Have you given up on chasing your dreams because you’ve said, “I CAN’T,” or, “I’M NOT ENOUGH?”

Well, today you’ll meet Amber Skyrpan, an Olympic athlete whose story may have you thinking differently.

However, what you may find surprising is that she was born without a femur bone in her right leg.

So, you may think that chasing her dream to play volleyball probably seemed impossible growing up, right? 

But Amber has an amazing story and is not only playing volleyball, but she’s also a Paralympic athlete with team Canada for sit volleyball.

I trust that Amber’s story of courage will empower YOU to ditch your I CAN’T MENTALITIES and CHASE YOUR dreams!

What’s Next for Amber?

Amber’s next big game is coming soon, and it’s at the OLYMPICS! She leaves for Tokyo for the Olympics on August 13, 2021, and her games are August 23-26.  You can follow Amber in the games and cheer her on! linked here.

Sitting Volleyball begins August 23 – 26 and you can find ALL information about the games here. 

Support Amber in her dream goes to https://volleyball.ca/en/about/support-us OR email Amber’s coach Nicole Ban for more information at nban@volleyball.ca.

What’s Next for You?

Now that you’ve heard Amber’s story, you may be thinking, “That’s great – but what if my perseverance doesn’t work for me? What if I try so hard and just don’t end up making it?”

That type of mentality is exactly what can prevent you from achieving your dreams. 

Keeping your mindset that you can’t do something is going to harm you in the long run.

Or maybe you’re in a situation like Amber, where you feel like your life is meant to go one way, but God might have a slightly different direction for you. For her, it was switching from volleyball to sit volleyball. But for you, it may be something like getting the job you didn’t really want at first after losing out on your dream job.

Yet maybe that job that wasn’t your first choice is the one that you’re meant to be in, the one you’ll thrive in, and the one that you’ll make the most impact in.

Start Switching Your Mindset

Are you ready to finally ditch your “I CAN’T” mentality?

Are you ready to let go of what YOU think is best for you, and let GOD show you what your path is for life?

If you’re looking for more ways to make those small decisions of courage, or how to start slowly changing your mindset to set yourself up for success, I have a few resources linked for you below!

The Power of Prayer & A Father’s Heart!

Do you find it hard to trust? Maybe wonder if God even hears your prayers? I know we aren’t shocked by the questions we have for God, or how weak we sometimes feel in our request, but what about spending some time sharing stories about the times HE DOES answer? What about sharing stories of miracles and the power of prayer? Would that encourage you today?

If I Had ONLY Known…

“IF ONLY I KNEW WHEN THE LAST TIME WAS GOING TO BE THE LAST TIME…….
I would have put off all the things I had to do.” A very powerful lyric from the Casting Crowns song, Scars In Heaven. 

Hearing this song, in light of hearing the news of my dear friend Dr. Garry E. Milley, who passed away in his sleep this past week, was what inspired me to write this blog for you today. Dr. Milley was my professor, a mentor, and dear friend, and I pray you are encouraged, as I share some golden nuggets from our interview, that I always PLANNED on sharing.
