“I AM – I CAN – I WILL” by Dr. Marie Dezelic & Dr. Gabriel Ghanoum
I Am A Miracle: Achieving Our True Potential
The visual Conceptual Pictograph, and positive affirmation, entitled “I AM - I CAN - I WILL” was designed for a program lecture series titled “I Am A Miracle: Achieving Our True Potential” (Dezelic & Ghanoum, 2016), helping us to become the Difference-Makers in our own lives.
This Pictograph can be used as a daily reminder for what we are working on: this week, this month, or this year. Use the positive statements as affirmations, and repeat them to yourself on a regular basis. Additionally, this Pictograph can be put in a place that is easy to see, to remind you of your continual work, work in progress, and your achievements and successes.
I Am: focuses on self-awareness, our true essence, our talents, gifts, and our positive roles, rather than on our limitations.
I Am… Say/write positive self-statements
I Can: focuses on self-discovery, building our confidence, empowering progress, growth and gratitude.
I Can… Say/write things that you want to and plan to achieve
I Will: focuses on self-determination, taking responsibility for our lives, engaging our willpower and well-being, and igniting our will toward meaning and meaningful action.
I Will… Say/write goals and plans that you plan to and will achieve
Viktor Frankl’s Meaning Triangle (of Logotherapy): Within the Difference-Maker Triad
(1) Attitude – (I Am and I Will)
(2) Experiences – (I Will and I Can)
(3) Creativity- (I Can and I Will)
Attitude, Experiences, and Creativity are the three pathways of discovering Meaning in Life. These three areas of Meaning are positively impacted when we focus on I Am, I Can, I Will.
What follows I AM, directs my beliefs; what follows I CAN, directs my abilities; what follows I WILL, directs my doing.
