I’ve worked with plenty of women over the years who come to realize
that the words they use
can either support the changes they want to make,
or keep them stuck very firmly in the same old place.
Here’s the challenge:
When you feel crappy about yourself because of the way you just ate,
and you notice negative words like
“I’m always so…”
See how you can creatively shift your words,
“Although I’ve often…now I…”
“More and more, my intention is to…”
“Even though I’ve…I’d rather…”
ONE OF MOST POWERFUL WAYS I KNOW,
WHENEVER YOUR WORDS ARE NEGATIVE
OR ABOUT LIMITATION OR “CAN’T”
IS TO ASK YOURSELF 3 WORDS.
HOW CAN I??
How can I eat an easy breakfast I love?
How can I make sure I don’t reach for junk
when I’m hungry before dinner?
How can I get enough variety without having to
deal with recipes?
When our brain asks a question, it also
opens up to recognizing answers.
This DOESN’T HAPPEN when I say
“I keep eating junk 2 hours before dinner.”
WHAT’S YOUR OLD WAY OF SAYING
ONE OF YOUR “THINGS”?
WHAT’S YOUR WAY OF ASKING YOURSELF HOW?
One of my favorite mantras when I find out I’m using limited words is “up until now.” I like it because it acknowledges that yes, I did a lot of XYZ, but only up until now. This leaves me the rest of my life to do something differently
Yes to that, right?!
