Not Progressing? Look at Your Language.

Fear stopped me from progressing in my battle against glossophobia for nearly 12 years. But after struggling for over a decade, I finally figured out what I was missing all those years. Then, it took me three months to control my fear.

I made small changes to my approach. As a result, I finally succeeded. Why didn’t it work the first two dozen times I tried to overcome my fear? One of the things I changed was my language. I eliminated conditional language from my thought process:

a.     I’ll give it a shot

b.     I think I can do it

c.     I’m not sure

d.     It should work

e.     What if…

f.      If only...

g.     I don’t know if I can...

h.     I’ll try my best

i.      I’ll do it, but...

j.      I wish I can do it!

k.     If I just had....

Every single one of these set conditions on my success. Every single one of these served as justifications for my lack of achievement. Every single one held me back from progressing. To move forward, I changed the way I thought and spoke.

Don't Be So Generic!
