List the things you have to do. How inspiring is your list?
I have to get up. I have to make my bed.
I have to take my daughter to school.
I have to go to work.
I have to call that client.
I have to go to the doctor.
Now replace "have to" with "get to." A little more inspired?
I get to get up. I get to make my bed.
I get to take my daughter to school.
I get to go to work.
I get to call that client.
I get to go to the doctor.
This tiny change can have a large impact. It puts every chore, task and obligation in a different light, doesn't it? Changing one word can lead to feelings of gratitude, of recognition of the choice we have, or of excitement.
I get to take my daughter to school. How lucky I am that we have this time together each morning. How fantastic that she likes school. How fortunate we are to live in a good school district.
Change your language, change your life.
Now get to it.
