Words are a Powerful tool. Most of the time we pay no attention to what it is we are saying, the impact it has on our lives, and how it in turn structures our reality.
The way we use words without even realizing it can zap our motivation. When we start out by saying things like: I have to . . . I should . . . I got to . . . I need to . . . We are usually coming from a place of stress or guilt, which then keeps us stuck. It pulls us down…, shutting off all inspiration, motivation, and possibility. I should…. but…. I need to…. but... I want to…. but... and the “buts” keep flowing, giving us justifications of why we “can’t”.
One word alone that has a tremendous amount of power is the word “Choose”.
If we replace all the… I have to’s… I should’s… I got to’s… I need to’s… with, “I Choose” to…, all the “buts” fall away. By saying “I Choose”, we automatically take responsibility and become open, allowing ideas to flow to us in ways that have been blocked before.
I Choose, Motivates us. I Choose, Empowers us. I Choose, opens up the doors to possibilities, giving us the Inspiration to move forward.
Simply replacing the I Should’s - I Want’s - I Need’s . . . to, “I Choose” is Empowering!
Dedicate the Month of June to pay attention to your Words and “Choose” to be in Full Control.
