Scientists discovered that adopting a certain vocabulary really makes you become another person, more optimistic and therefore, more powerful. The subconscious believes what it hears and not necessarily what it’s true. There are certain techniques that help people turn negative thoughts into positive, as the way people use words have a great impact upon the quality of their life. While some specific words have a destructive power, others are very constructive and provide you with more power to gain great achievements.
Let’s take an example: “I can’t” suggests that you don’t have control on your life, as compared to “I won’t”, which suggests that you can have your own choice. Simply reduce using “I can’t” from your vocabulary and you’ll surely see the difference. Your subconscious won’t record “Weak” and it feels like you can choose from various options. You can try using “I could, but I prefer to…”
“I should” is another pain, suggesting weakness. Replace it with “I could”. For example, “I could go out for dinner tonight, but I’m choosing to stay home and cook”. Can you see the difference? It’s not like you obliged to do something, you rather choose what to do and what not to do. Every time you say or repeat in your mind “I should”, your power weakens, draining your emotions to the negative aspect.
Here comes the green-eyed monster: “It’s not my fault”. This makes you appear like you’re helpless and irresponsible, becoming a victim or a cry baby. You don’t want to look that way, do you? Well, flush it away and replace it with “I’m totally responsible”. For instance, let’s say you lost your job. How come? You surely could have done better. You can say “I’m totally responsible and I will be better prepared next time”. This surely makes you more powerful.
“It’s a problem”. No kidding! People face problems all the time, every single day, but this doesn’t mean that you have to repeat it so often. In fact, don’t say it at all, it’s not like it’s music to your years and to your subconscious. Replace it with “It’s an opportunity”. Now you adopted a different approach, knowing that you can handle difficult situations without repentance.
“What will I do” is another issue. now you really look desperate and it puts you in a really bad light. Your subconscious registers fear and complaint, you can almost hear it screaming in anger. Just replace it with “I know I can handle it”. Well, that sounds a lot better. Start trusting that words have their power and they can influence your life. Take advantage of this, it doesn’t cost you a lot on life coaching trainings, it doesn’t require time or patience. It’s the easiest way to make your life better, to improve your image and…it’s scientifically proven.
