Instead of saying…

We’ve never done it before say we have the opportunity to be first.

We don’t have the resources say necessity fuels invention.

There’s not enough time say we’ll change how we work.

We’ve already tried that says we learned from experience.

We don’t have the expertise say let’s network with those who do.

Our vendors and customers won’t go for it say let’s show them opportunities.

We don’t have enough money say maybe there’s something we can cut.

We’re understaffed say we’re a lean hungry team.

It’ll never get any better say we’ll try one more time.

Let somebody else deal with it say I’m ready to learn something new.

It’s not my job say I’ll be glad to take the responsibility.

Instead of saying, I can’t say By God’s grace I can.
