This one tiny word has got to go.
“Do, or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda, Star Wars
[TRY] – a word that limits us in ways we don’t realize. And if you’re like me, you say it wayyy more than you think.
[TRY] destroys our credibility with others. Take a look at this article from Inc.com – This phrase instantly destroys your credibility:
People who fail to achieve goals almost always signal their intent to fail by using three little words:
“I will try…”
It is as if we set ourselves up for failure – and at the same time give ourselves an out, “Oh, I tried!”
This week’s #1wordwednesday challenge: eliminate the word [TRY] from our vocabulary. Instead, just do it. Or don’t. Make a decision. One or the other. Don’t settle for in-between or failure.
Our entire family is still wearing our purple bracelets. Last week we focused on complaining. This week, we’ll add to that challenge and switch our bracelets to the other arm every time we use the word [TRY].
Won’t you join us?
Find a stretchy bracelet (or anything you can use to switch back and forth on your arm, a hair tie will do just fine) and each time you say the word [TRY], move the bracelet from one arm to the other.
