When you’re challenged with a difficult task or problem how do you respond? Do you balk at the first sign of a challenge because you immediately question your abilities?
Is your usual response an ‘I can’t do that, or I’m not good at that?’
What if you ended your self-doubt by adding ‘yet’ to the end of your thought?
So your new response would be, ‘I can’t do that yet or I’m not good at that yet.’ How would this one small change in vocabulary affect your approach?
The word yet can be life changing. Get in habit of using the word yet in your thinking when you doubt your ability to meet a challenge. It will signal to you the possibility of progress and increases your confidence when tackling new challenges. It will help you transform how you see yourself and your current set of abilities.
