I was blog surfing this morning and came across this. I'm so guilty of habit.
"I'm not good at ________"
"I really suck at __________"
"I'd do well if I were only better at ________"
The truth is that yes, some people are really gifted and talented and don't have to work hard for some things, but the majority of us have to work hard for what we want. To be successful at anything, the most important thing you will ever train is your mind. Here's a great place to start:
Instead of saying, "I'm not good at swimming (running, golfing, biking, etc)."
Say: "I haven't reached my potential yet." or "I'm on the way to reaching my potential."
Doesn't it sound much more positive and empowering?
