TAKE THE WORD ‘MIGHT’ OUT OF YOUR VOCABULARY
STOP GIVING YOURSELF AN OUT!
“I might come in tomorrow”
“I might go for a run in the morning”
“I might not have ice cream after dinner”
Throw it out. Get rid of it. It’s not doing you any good.
The word ‘might’ reinforces to yourself that you’re not fully committed. That you’re not accountable. That you’re not responsible for what you do in the future.
You’re half-committing to something. You’re waiting for an excuse to pop up that will get you out of what you should do.
Nothing shits me more than hearing “I might come in the gym...” All I hear when someone says that is – “I don’t value my health or training enough to commit to a time and a day when I’ll come in to train.”
Or “I’m saying ‘might’ because something more important may pop up, or I may not feel like it on the day.”
If you say ‘might’, I immediately expect you not to show. You’re already searching for a meaning to miss.
Use the word ‘will’ and you’ll find a reason to make it.
Words are important. Take ownership either way. Either it is important to you or it’s not. Lose the word ‘might’ and commit to a decision.
