Roseline Deleu was interviewed on this topic by the lovely Tina Higgins 6DBY radio WA-Australia, December 2012 – ever since, Roseline presents this popular topic during her lectures worldwide and on P&O cruises.
Replace BUT & IF
Change BUT and replace it by AND.
BUT automatically deletes and erases the part of the sentence that you just said.
AND will be followed by steps to suggestions or solutions towards a positive outcome.
Change IF and replace it by WHEN.
IF creates immediately a doubt on what you just said.
WHEN gives a subtle strength on what you just said will happen!
IF and BUT both hold you back while WHEN and AND allow situations to unfold!
TO TRY: the verb to ban!
The verb TO TRY does not exist, so skip it from your vocabulary. When people use often ‘trying’ they doubt and they unconsciously are fooling themselves.
“Just do it!”
I know very well that many of you will now hear how many times people use ‘try’ – it is going to nag you… 😀
1. Become aware of the words you use on a daily basis.
2. Keep hearing those you wish to change and each time re-word your sentences.
All the best!
