Removing Toxic Words From Your Vocabulary
We’ve talked a lot before about self-limiting beliefs and the way you talk to and about yourself – and I’m not going to rehash all the details – if you want to learn more about that, check out episode 7 of my podcast – and I’m really going to focus on a few specific examples of speech that you might be accidental – also known as unconsciously – using in your daily life that is keeping your from your Best Life Ever.
Once you can identify these accidental spells you are creating your life with, you can bring awareness to how often you are doing this, and instead intentionally create a spell to design the life you actually want. And you do this by doing one simple thing: changing your words.
The words you say out loud shape your life. How? Because your words are formed from thoughts – so these thoughts that are trickling around in your head shaping your beliefs come out into the physical world as speech. When you create words from thoughts and then announce them into the physical world by saying them out loud, you give them power.
What do you think you have accidentally created for your life? The answer is simpler than you think: look around – what does your life look like? You created that.
If your life is unfulfilling and lacks passion…you played a part in creating that.
If your life is full of financial stress, you played a part in creating that.
If your life is full of self-doubt and fear…. you are playing a major part in creating that.
You create your life. You create your fate. Now listen, this is not all gloom and doom here, like oh crap, I’m to blame for all these things going wrong in my life! No.
Ok, so the first toxic phrase that may be accidentally creating an outcome that you do not want: I CAN’T.
How often do you use the word “can’t’?” I can’t do that.
I can’t find a new job.
I can’t find a suitable partner.
I can’t lose weight.
The problem with this? What happens when you say things like this? One of two things. First – when you use the word “can’t” you shift the responsibility externally.
Ask yourself this: do you want to be this version of yourself or not? I want you to take responsibility for who you want to be and attach yourself to that…and not who you have been in the past. This is imperative. Stop saying “I can’t” because you are basing that belief on things that you have done or not done in the PAST.
Who you are is not who you were. Say it out loud: Who I am, is not who I was.
