How many times have you heard someone say that they will try to do something? Try to stop smoking, try to lose weight, try to get a better job or try to take more time off?
Adding the word 'try' to the beginning of such statements implies that it is hard, beyond reach or not possible. In short, setting up for failure, giving permission to fail.
Being mindful of the language that we use when negotiating with ourselves over tasks or goals can change the whole balance of percieved possibility. By leaving out the word 'try', we are giving ourselves permission to succeed.
Success can sometimes be achieved by people just because nobody told them that they couldn't. By managing the perception of possiblity and consciously deciding to negotiate positively with ourselves, levels of success in work life and private life can be dramatically improved.
