I can't vs I won't

‘I Can’t do it vs I Won’t do it’. There is a lot of difference between the two.

‘I can’t’ speaks of the lack of ability to do something. ‘I won’t’ speaks of a lack of willingness to do a particular task. There are so many instances when we say “I can’t do it” when in actuality we mean “I won’t do it”, or “I do not want to get outside my comfort zone to do a particular task”.

As Charles Shultz once said, “When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do”.

The next time we say, “I can’t do it”, think again. Is it ‘I can’t’ or is it ‘I won’t’?
