Breakthroughs... Part 2

I asked him to sit down. Then I asked him to “try” and get out of the chair. Of course you know he stood up.

We repeated the exercise. “Try” to stand up. After several attempts at “trying” he finally realized that you can’t try. You either do it or you don’t.

There are three words I never let students use around me. “Try”, “Can’t” and Won’t”. We just covered “Try”. When you say that you “can’t” do something, you’re really telling me that you are unwilling. By saying “won’t” means that you’re going to dig your heels in and that you want to be right regardless of the outcome.

Think about it, how many times do you use those words in your own speaking? Those three words are a setup to failure. You actually set yourself up to fail before you even begin when you use those words. You’re actually pre-programming yourself to fail.
