Don’t you mean change your thinking, change your life?
Last week I was talking about procrastination and mentioned that I was going to focus my next few articles on that topic.
No, I’m not going to teach you HOW to procrastinate, so don’t worry. We have so many excuses as to why we don’t get started moving in the direction of our dreams or goals. I mentioned that in my unofficial survey, the #1 excuse I encountered was “I don’t have enough time.”
Those five little words (which are not true, by the way) have killed hopes and dreams, have led people to frustration and despair, and have been the cause of so much settling and unhappiness.
It’s time to put away that excuse once and for all (and for me, too!!).
Once I started to play around with what was coming out of my mouth, I started taking action. I’m still as busy as ever. I still have competing priorities. I still like to sleep. I still like to eat. I still like to go out dancing on Friday nights.
And I’m taking action anyway. And I have time to take action.
Here are five other words to memorize and replace those (killer) words with:
Change your language, change your life.
Last week, your action was to change your language from “I have to” or “I should” or “I need to” to “I choose to.” On Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday when I go to the gym and exercise with the ‘over 55’ crowd, I no longer say, “I have to go today” and I don’t even say, “I choose to go today.”
Instead, I’ve upgraded my language to “I get to go today!”
Can you feel the difference in the energy of the words, “I get to?” It puts a smile on my face.
I get to send out emails. I get to prepare for Sunday talks. I get to attend chamber mixers. I get to organize my office. I get to pay some bills. I get to balance my checkbook. Woo Hoo!
It’s like I’m having a party! And when I ‘get to’ do something, it doesn’t feel like a chore or an obligation. And, the most amazing thing of all is that I get going!
