As motivational speakers we talk about the power our mind has over our actions, and the importance of the words we use that help us reach our goals. Apparently there are two phrases that plague many women like me: I can't, and I'm sorry. Or at least they plague me – and if I'm this way, I can only imagine there are more women out there like me.
I wasn't aware of this problem until my gym trainer pointed it out, and informed me that from now on, I am no longer allowed to say "I can't" or "I'm sorry". I then proceeded to say it about ten more times that hour. Habits are hard to break.
So the simple point is this – those words are limiting. When we say we can't do it, we are making that our reality. And saying "I'm sorry" is just wasted energy. The sooner we can remove those words from our vocabularly the better.
I hope it's easier for you than it is for me!
As usual, here's hoping this post helps you reach your dreams – if not, I'm sorry, I can't do any better.
