How many things are on your, “I don’t know how to do that” list? How about your, “I am not successful at…” list?
Here’s a tip. Take that same phrase, and add the word “yet” to the end.
I am not making the kind of money I want to make – yet.
I did not get that promotion – yet.
My calendar is not full – yet.
I’m not good at making sales calls – yet.
The power of this simple word is that it leaves open the opportunity for a change in the situation. It drives home the fact that you might simply not know how to accomplish the desired objective – yet. It reinforces the idea that you may still get what it is that you seek. It provides encouragement to continue to push forward in pursuit of your goals.
What have you not accomplished – yet?
