No. 33 | Taking Ownership of Your Choices – I Don’t vs. I Can’t
Sometimes a subtle shift in language and self talk can have a huge impact on how you take ownership of your choices. Stepping into your power and feeling a sense of empowered commitment to your approach
As a continuation of the conversation we had in episode 32, we are talking about how your perception of your rules, whether they are rules or guidelines that are self imposed or not, can really affect your success and your commitment.
None of this is about perfection nor is it a suggestion that rules are the righter only way, but instead it’s about finding peace and ease in the limitations.
Every time I tell myself “I can’t”, I create a feedback loop that is a reminder of my limitations.
“I Don’t” versus “I Can’t”: When Empowered Refusal Motivates Goal-Directed Behavior.
