Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #063 — I hate my “But”!

It was a brilliant conversation, until she showed her “But…” On a monthly call with a group of amazing coaches, this powerful woman described how powerfully she has been showing up and then she said, “I want to be like that is all areas of my life, BUT …”

It’s amazing how three little letters can ruin everything.

You see, “but” negates everything that was just said. It’s like “But” is a linguistic shorthand for “I don’t really believe anything I just said, listen to this instead…”

Don’t believe me? Try this at home with your spouse and let me know how it goes: “I love you, but, I wish you’d …”

Words create worlds, people. Choose yours carefully.

What is your “but” ruining?
