Hi Nick Brodd here. How switched on are you today? How motivated are you to finish that book chapter or blog post of yours? I’m here right now to tell you that you can change all of that. Today!
And my advice is short and sweat: Change your vocabulary.
No I’m not talking about the vocabulary you use when you write. I’m talking about what you’re telling yourself and how it impacts your attitude.
- You don’t have to write a new book; you get to write a new book. Imagine the power of you sharing your ideas with the whole world!
- You don’t have to write a new blog post. You get to write a new work on your book. Imagine how lucky you are that people are interested in what you have to say!
- You’re not trying to get in shape. You are getting in shape. Think about how awesome it will be when you show up on that beach!
- You’re not trying to make more calls to publishing agents. You are making calls to publishing agents.
I’m sure you get the idea. Here’s how you switch yourself on:
- Your Awareness. Become conscious of your vocabulary. Reflect on the words you use.
- Your Switch. I’m all for responsibility, but you don’t have to do things. Intentionally switch from using the words I have to and instead use I get to.
- Your Elimination. Trying is not the same thing as doing. In fact trying is pretty useless. Eliminate it from your vocabulary.
- Your Gratitude. Stay conscious of the purpose of what you’re doing. Be grateful for your opportunities and see your motivation rise.
- Your Commitment. Play to win. Don’t settle for “trying”. Commit 100%.
Too many people walk through their days, weeks, years and lives switched off. While doing so they miss out on opportunities, the very opportunities that greatness lead to.
So don’t stay complacent. Switch on already today. Be the one that brightens up every place you enter and not the one who brightens up the place when he leaves.
