Do I Haaave To?

* Transcription

Thank God it’s Monday!™ You hear it all the time. I have to pick up my kids. I have to go to work now. I have to do that project.

What if you changed your language to say I get to pick up the kids now? I get to go to work now. And I get to do that project.

Wow, don’t you just feel better already?

Our language reveals our inner most thoughts, and if you are a “have to” person, you are revealing that you live your life primarily within the “victim archetype.” Ouch. That doesn’t feel good to think about. But, the truth will, you know… set you free.

Simply by changing your language, you’ll feel better about your life because you’ve taken yourself out of the victim role and putting yourself into a powerful position of being at choice.

And yes, you get to choose the language every day.

Have a great Monday!
