Powerful people know words have power. Consider removing disempowering words like “I think.” These are protector words that weakens our message. It shows we are not confident about what we are communicating. It demonstrates that we are questioning ourselves. It’s a qualifier that says, we may be wrong but it’s only our opinion. Every word is our opinion. We don’t have to preface our idea or statement with “I think.”
Let us shift the dynamics of our conversation from sounding hesitant to being confident today.
Transformation starts with our thoughts, in small increments: a mental image and as little as 100 words. Transformation isn't a future event. It's a present day activity.
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts." - Thoreau
