Stop apologizing

I’m sorry I’m late. I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I’m sorry I couldn’t come. We all do this (especially women!). It’s time to stop apologizing. And I don’t mean for important things. Of course, you should apologize if you genuinely hurt someone. Stop apologizing for trivial things. Whether you like it or not, words matter, what you tell others impacts you. Instead of apologizing you can say thank you. Thanks for waiting. Thanks for your patience. Thanks for inviting me. Use your words to make a positive impact rather than a self-deprecating one.

I believe vs. I have decided

You may think that there is not much of a difference between these two statements but there is a huge difference. I believe is a positive statement. It sounds really good but it's really just hoping. When you say I believe, then there is room for doubt. When you say I have decided, then it’s a done deal. If there is the slightest doubt then that doubt can creep in and sabotage your transformation. I’ve decided means there is no room for doubt. Think about it as if it has already happened. Your brain won’t know the difference. It’s amazing how the brain works. It doesn’t know the difference between something that has already happened and something that you have visualized happening.

It's too hard…

If you tell yourself it's too hard it will be too hard. It’s that simple. Analyze your thinking. What are you telling yourself? What are you telling others? What are you telling your children? Your beliefs are decisions when you say something is too hard you are saying you aren’t going to do it. Try replacing your language. Replace with I have to with I get to or even I choose to. Instead of saying you are trying to get out of debt replace that with you are creating abundance. It’s not I’m going to lose weight, instead, try I will create a healthier body. There are so many ways to change your self-talk. Listen to this episode to hear how you can change your self-talk and transform your life.

What language do you use to describe food?

We often try to label our food as good or bad. But the truth is food is neither good or bad. Food can either contribute to health or diminish health. When eating healthier foods we often create ‘cheat days’ or ‘treats’. But you haven’t been depriving yourself so don’t talk like you have. Eating something out of the ordinary isn’t bad and you shouldn’t tell yourself such. Instead, think of it as a The more you become aware of your self-talk the easier it is to begin to change it. It’s not easy but once you recognize it as negative self-talk you’ll realize how to turn it around.
