Have you ever noticed that successful people not only do things in a certain way, but also say things in a certain way?
Success leaves a pattern. Success is a habit.
Whether you are an engineer, sales professional or an entrepreneur, if you want to be successful, you want to pay attention to the words you use.
I want to you get rid of those disempowering words from your vocabulary, words that successful people would never say
1. This is probably a stupid question
There is no stupid question. Stop discrediting yourself. Don’t make emotional self-judgments for others. Don’t give people a chance to negate what would say next.
2. You probably don’t have time for this
If you want people to pay attention and make time for you, stop saying this! Just say what you want to say and let them decide if they have time for you or not.
3. I was just going to say that
You either did say it or you did not. This phrase gives absolutely no value or meaning to your communication.
4. I can’t…
If you are committed to something, you “can” do it. You may not know how to do it, but it doesn’t mean you can’t. If you don’t want to or don’t know how to do certain things, just say it. Stop saying you can’t. Have you ever heard people say: “Can I go to the bathroom?” What would you say?
5. I try…
Try means you don’t want to commit. Try means it is okay not to do it. You either do it or you don’t. Don’t try. Just do it.
If you believe in something, don’t add the “but” at the end. The word “but” negates everything you say prior to the word, “but”. Instead, use the word “and”.
7. I hope…
Take responsibility to your own success. You know things will happen if you are 100% committed to do it. Don’t hope for things to happen. What your mind believe and conceive, it can achieve.
Think About This…
How often do you say these disempowering words?
Just Do This…
How about you commit to stop saying these words for the next couple of weeks? You will notice the difference. I am very sure.
