Six Phrases to Stop Saying

by Laura Kronen on May 1, 2013

think positive and positive will come to you

Our thoughts determine our attitude, our attitude determines our actions, and our actions determine our life.  To realize our full potential, we need to realize what is possibly holding us back. Many times it’s just thought patterns, negative thinking and just every day words and expressions.  Let’s eliminate these six dirty phrases from your repertoire and watch how your world changes.

I’m not ready.

Yes you are.  You’re as ready as you’ll ever be. Everything leading up to today has prepared for everything you will do now and in the future. What you’re not ready for, you will become ready for. Life will never introduce something to you that you won’t be able to figure out. You’re ready. In fact, you’re always ready.

It’s impossible.

Look around. Everything you see was once “impossible.” But then someone dedicated their life to figuring it out. You are possible and anything is possible. You only need to remember that you will figure it out.

People will judge me.

You’re right. They might. And if they do, are they the kind of people you want in your life? When you start doing what you love, you’ll attract people who love to do the same kinds of things as you. Let yourself be judged. It’s an automatic filter of the people you’ll want to minimize spending time with.

I’ll start tomorrow.

Will you really? Why can’t you start today? What’s one small thing you can do to begin now? Is what you want to start tomorrow actually important to you? Why is it important? Where are you hoping it will take you? If it’s important, work toward it today. Otherwise, don’t start.

I might fail

Yes. You might fail. And guess what? You will survive. You will learn to use failure as momentum. Your failures will lead you to your successes. The insight, learnings, and relationships that you gain from failing will often be more useful than what you originally set out to do. But only if you start failing. How can you fail today?

But I have to do this.

False. You do not have to do anything. You have a choice. Yes, you may have made a commitment and quitting or changing courses might not be fun in the short-term. But, do you really want to live a life in which you feel obligated to do things? Or, do you want to align yourself with people and opportunities that make you truly and deeply want to do things. It’s your choice. How can you take what you have to do and turn it into what you want to do?

When you change your thoughts, you change your attitude, actions, and the direction of your life. Your best life begins now. Bring it on!

Those are such inspiring words. Life is a battle that everyone of us should face. Though, I’m a type of person who is not so confident with what I have, but after reading this it gives me inspiration to aim high because I know that I can face any battle that life has to offer. It is a choice and i chose to face that battle in order for me to reach my goals. Thanks you so much for sharing this wonderful post.
