One of the greatest tricks I’ve ever learned is to change the words in my sentence when I speak out loud about the things I’m going to do.
One little word change can make an incredible difference in how you perceive what you’re about to do. Every morning, I get up at 5:00 AM to go to the gym to start the day off with self-love and self-care. I used to say “I got to” get up at 5:00 AM – “I’ve got” to get to the gym to lose some weight – “I got” to do those things in the morning. But, I realized that the ability and the gift of getting up in the morning and going to the gym are underappreciated and surrounded by stress when I say “I got” to do it.
The minute I change my narrative to say “I GET” to wake up every morning, and “I GET” to go to the gym, and “I GET” to start my day off by working on myself, it becomes a blessing! It becomes a moment of gratitude and is no longer coming from a position of stress.
Simply paying attention to your choice of words, changing one word from “I GOT” to “I GET” shifts your entire perspective, approach, and results.
Look at all the words that you’re using when you’re talking to yourself.
