What I Can't Really Means: Mom's Uplifting 'Guide' for Youngsters Inspired by Son's Poor Attitude

Marlene Fuson’s potentially life-changing new book has a bold message for the young and young-at-heart: they can achieve anything if they replace “I can’t” with “I can”. After seeing frustration in her own eldest son and watching his struggle with this bold concept, Fuson decided it was time to reach out and inspire not only him, but people around the world.


Corbin, KY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/28/2014 -- Being young isn’t easy, especially when you’re bombarded with powerful life lessons that directly contradict teenage frustrations. Nobody witnessed this stronger than Marlene Fuson, a concerned and loving mother whose eldest son greeted her messages of hope with an answer that sums up the attitude of most youngsters – “I Can’t”.

After recognizing and sympathizing with her son’s inability to accept that decisions, attitudes and actions are life’s true gateways to success, Fuson decided to write a book to help people around the world change their behaviors with gusto.

‘What I Can’t Really Means’ is that book; inspired by a mother’s love and now set to resonate with readers everywhere.


“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.

As the author explains, her awakening to this global issue came in the confines of home.

“I’ve always brought my children up with the message that they can achieve anything, if only they approach life with the correct attitudes and beliefs. I initially got frustrated at my son’s constant refusal to pursue this way of thinking, until I came to accept that, like millions of others, he does not fully understand that choice,” says Fuson.

Continuing, “That’s when I decided to write a book not only for young people, but for readers of any age who may have missed out on this vital education during their own formative years.”

Reviews for the book have been extremely positive. For example, Michael Heskett commented, “This book was a HUGE wake-up slap to the face! Even in just the first few pages, I was hit with principles and advice I had never even thought of before. The book is super simple to understand, and if put into practice, some of these principles will make an immediate difference in your life. It definitely did in mine.”

Carol Sensabaugh was equally as impressed, adding, “Everyday conservation started the book between mother and son with good sound advice given and that's what's needed with today's youth instead of throwing money and electronics at it . The school systems could use this as a teaching tool on a level the kids can understand.”
