I’m back here in New York and getting an opportunity to take a nice beautiful fall walk. I feel so fortunate that I get to be back here and experience this beautiful weather and also to just be able to get out and exercise in a beautiful place.
What I realized is that our words absolutely create our world.
How often do you hear yourself say “I get to” versus “I have to?” When you're saying “I get to” it's usually about things that you really love doing, such as being in your passions, spending time with people that you love, those things that really make your heart sing. Then the things that are more of a challenge we might say “I have to.”
Often times things will shift. There are times where we would have paid any amount of money to have the experience that we’re having. Then later in life we say “hey, I have to go to work” where you would have done anything to get to go to work or get to create this opportunity.
So notice where your words are supporting you feeling awesome and when you’re words are bringing you down and making you feel not as encouraged.
So with that I challenge you to notice when you say “I get to” or “I have to.”
