Wiping Out Wimpy Words
How often do you hear words like these:
- “We’ll see.”
- “I’ll try.”
- “Hopefully …”
- “I don’t know how.”
- “I can’t figure out …”
Not the words of a master manifester, right?
This is where I’d like to say I picked these phrases from client conversations in order to highlight what NOT to say as a powerful creator.
But the truth is these words came from my own mouth!
In fact, I can hardly believe … I just did it again! While typing this very post I popped over to read emails; saw that my new virtual assistant resent a note I hadn’t responded to yet.
So I replied back saying thanks for the resend, and that I’m HOPING to get my inbox under control later today.
What the @$&*%?!
I know so much better than to hope or try for anything, and yet there I was speaking it. (Or typing it, anyway.)
If I didn’t know better I might think I was insane to use weak speech that doesn’t reflect (or empower) my reality-creating abilities. But, it’s not insanity – just habit.
While my language is much stronger now than years ago, obviously there’s still room for improvement.
I share this because I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. 🙂
Okay, now it’s getting ridiculous! (Just saw a blog comment from Tia asking me to locate a lengthy comment she submitted but didn’t see post. I couldn’t find it and tweeted her this: “nothing in my spam folder yet . but maybe it’ll take a second to show up? I hope!” Argh!)
This is clearly time to regroup and realize resistance to wimpy words – in fact, resistance to ANYTHING – doesn’t eliminate it. It just encourages more of it.
With this awareness, I’ll give up my battle against wimpy words like hope and try and can’t, and remember how good I am at speaking powerfully. Remember how well I use language that reflects and enhances my powerful abilities to create whatever I want.
I’m tempted to change the title of this post at the same time.
Regardless of what I do, I know it’ll be perfect.
That’s more like it!
- I KNOW.
- I INTEND.
- I WILL.
- I CAN.
- I AM.
Okay, I’m on a sweet little roll now! Let’s keep this one going!
I’d love to hear your most effective ways for spotting your own limiting language, and how you turn it around! Game?
