When I choose words to express myself, I have decided one thing. When I am telling myself about the possibility to do something, there are two choices: to do it or not to do it. Simple and difficult at times. I hear Yoda (a Star War character of fame) say, “Do or do not. There is no try.”
I “attempt” to remember this quote throughout my day. This option is important to keep it before me when I choose. When I call my son and he does not take my call and goes to his voice mail, I text him that I “attempted” to reach him.
You can do this exercise for a day or a week. Find that it opens up possibilities when you are more honest with yourself and others!
Let me know your experience with this exercise below in the comments. And remember…Smile!
