It's been a very difficult year for so many of us. But it's time to start looking forward and celebrating what we can do. We've created fun, simple ways to make that happen!
We want you to lead with your best foot forward and highlight your skills!
Highlighting what you can do helps one to appreciate what they have. Through #iCan statements we have empathy to understand that one person’s accomplishments are still another person’s dreams. #iCan statements help to show others that one step at a time anything is possible. They are fun, simple ways, to promote positivity, inspire, and affirm our gratitude for our own skills. Start and end your day on a positive note. Remember all the wonderful things you can do and share those with others to connect with them and make an impact.
As we age sometimes the world showers us with what we can’t do, but at GetSetUp we know that as we age #WeCan! We want to start a revolution of people who aren’t focused on what they can’t do anymore but rather on what they can do now!
So, take affirmative action to make a statement! Share something you can learn, do, teach, or accomplish.
Each and every day start your day off right with affirming what you can do. Check back in with yourself at the end of the day, maybe you can do something new by then?
