“What I Can’t Really Means” was inspired by the author’s eldest son in the hopes to help other pre-teen, teenage, young adult, and the young at heart to realize that they can truly accomplish anything if they only say “I can” instead of “I can’t”. An attitude can change many things in life, and this book can guide readers through the attitude adjustments that is needed in the lives of many. “What I Can’t Really Means” covers the common “wrong thinking” problems that plague the minds of many young people today, and incorporates the steps to correct and change this “thinking” into what it should be. Readers will find if they add these simple corrections to their lives, they will live life with a better attitude, be happier with the lives they are living, and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Here is what Marlene had to say about her inspiration for her book:

“I decided to write this book because of my oldest son and something he said to me. I am constantly trying to explain to all of my children how important decisions, attitudes, and actions are in life.  When he looked at me and said ‘I can’t’, I was completely flabbergasted. So I decided since my son is constantly hearing how important having positive attitude is in life and is still deciding to turn away from that thinking, it has to be because he does not fully understand that choice.”
