“Success comes in CANS, not can’ts” said James T. Reese more than 12 years ago at an event Charmaine co-organized. That quote has become her mantra, especially during challenging times.
It is amazing what PAWsitibilites surface when you change your language and your thoughts. A simple change from the word CAN’T to CAN changes everything! We found this prayer on the internet, that sums it all up beautifully…
The Knots Prayer
Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots, may nots, might nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart and my life all of the am nots that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.

Last week Charmaine was doing a presentation to a team on the topic of Teamwork by Design. I always weave my way into her presentations somehow.
One of the workshop participants left her a little note written on a piece of paper which said “Charmaine, The strength of the pack is the wolf. The strength of the wolf is the pack!”
WOW! What a great way to look at a team.
