Sages insists that words are potent and should be chosen and spoken with care, for they are the most powerful drugs used by mankind.
That is to say, we have to mind what we say at every point in time.
Here are 7 phrases successful people never say:
1. “I have no choice,” or ” I had no choice. ”
Successful people always see options, regardless of the situation. people who use these weak words do that to relieve themselves of responsibilities.
2. “l should have,” or “I could have.”
The words ” should, could and ought”, imply regret. Successful people will never wallow in the past, and they rarely regret a decision. They believe everything is a learning experience that gets them closer to their aims.
4. “It’s not my fault”
Blame shifters are annoying to be around with. They never get anything done, they are bent on apportioning blames on others, at the least chance. Admitting wrong doing means you’re growing and learning for the future.
5. “It has always been done this way”
Successful people are successful because they love to innovate and do things differently. And as said by Steve Jobs, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. That is why creative people are mostly employed.
6. “I don’t have enough time”
People allow time to impose it’s will on them; but successful people impose their will on time. Time is equally shared…..so you have no excuse to not becoming successful.
7. ” I don’t have the right connections.”
You would not have the right connections if you don’t make it. Successful people are connected to successful people. You don’t have an excuse to not making it. You would get the connections if you make yourself important to others.
