Thank God it’s Monday!™ Watch your mouth. Language is the precursor of results. If you don’t believe it, listen for the next 24 hours and form your own conclusions.

Here’s what you’ll probably hear. The people you know who complain about being overwhelmed
really are. Not because they are getting more results, but because their critical thinking
skills are weak and they are disorganized on how to approach things. People who say, “Sure I’ll figure it out,” get things done in a small fraction of the time. People who say, “I’ll try,” don’t actually get results, they have already bought into the story that it won’t happen, when they negotiate with their language.

People who use committed language like, “You can count on me,” and “Yes I’ll get that complete,”
rarely miss deadlines or results. People who have excuses are very poor at getting results. People who are accountable and say, “I blew it and here’s what I am doing to be back on track,” really will get back on track. They get stuff done and you can count on them.

Also, people who gossip or listen to gossip feel inadequate, and feel that the way to feel better
is to hurt others by partaking in hurting others. Of course that further destroys their self-esteem. If you don’t believe that language is an extremely accurate predictor of future results, you will enjoy your day of research. Let me know if you still don’t believe when you come to the end of the day.

Language is the precursor of future results!

Have a great Monday!
