If you are anything like the average person, there are 2 words (sometimes abbreviated together to form one) that we all use quite a few times every single day.
These 2 words define who we are.
They define what we do.
They define how people see us.
Yet more importantly, they also define HOW we go about the tasks we set out for ourselves.
So you might be asking – what are these 2 words? As simple as they sound, here they are.
Yes, you read that right. “I AM” are probably 2 of the most powerful words in the English language and words that we all use every day to (subconsciously) define who we are and what we do – whether we believe it or not. “I’m too tired;” “I’m busy;” “I am in a rush;” “I am fed up” and so the list goes on.
Every time you use these 2 words, you are programming yourself at a subconscious level to do things in a certain way, thereby setting the state in which you operate and therefore setting the intention for the next few hours of your day.
If you are anything like us, life can keep you pretty busy.
Sometimes — more often than we would like — it is hard just to keep straight what day it is, let alone where we are supposed to be and what we are supposed to be doing.
In those moments, it is almost too easy to “forget” about the things that are important to us.
We tell ourselves “I am too…………” and then come the excuses.
What if we started telling ourselves different things instead, before we even started the day?
What if the first thing we said when we woke up was “I am a person who counts and is worth something and is capable?”
How different would things be then?
How much time would we save?
How many excuses would we be able to let go of?
More importantly, how much better about ourselves would we feel?
So today, watch how you’re labelling yourself.
Today, give yourself a brand new label.
