Have you ever heard yourself saying?

“This situation (or person) is just impossible.”

“I’m a total failure at…” or “I’m hopeless at…”

“I’ll never be able to figure this out.”

“I’ll try, but…”

“It’s just such a nightmare.”

If you answered “yes” to any of these, then it’s likely you’ve unconsciously been sabotaging your success simply by how you speak.

But you can change that with these 5 Positive Speaking Habits to Build Yourself Up.

1. Hold Yourself Powerfully
2. Reframe Forward
3. Avoid Absolutes
4. Don't Apologize for Your Opinion
5. Express Commitment (Stop Trying!)

Replace language that is qualifying, passive and imprecise with language that is positive, specific and declarative—the kind that puts you firmly in command, shifts your energy and, in doing so, makes you someone others want to listen to.
