The words that we use are enormously important in influencing our motivation.
If you tell yourself that “You must” or “You have to” do something, the actvity feels like a chore or an obligation.
Next time you have an item on your to-do-list, tell yourself how lucky you are that you “GET TO” do this activity.
Rather than grumble that “I must wash the dishes”, I tell myself I GET to wash up. It changes my mindset in seconds!
I actually relish my washing-up time to either practise some quiet, mindful time or alternatively, I use the time to catch up with my podcast listening!
Changing your words into something more empowering will energise you rather than depress you – Not to mention make you more productive!
